Faith No More to Make Announcement Tuesday
Over the weekend, the rightfully-revered Faith No More posted a teaser image on social media, hinting that they’re gearing up for… something.
While we still don’t know what that something is, it looks like we’re gonna find out tomorrow: the band’s website now includes a clock counting down to 2 p.m. EST on November 26.
The obvious hope here is that the band is gonna announce a new album. In 2017, frontman and demi-god Mike Patton said that “I kind of don’t think [Faith No More] will [return].” But then, last year, keyboardist Roddy Bottum revealed that he’d been sporadically working on new music with other members. So who the heck knows. But I think it’s worth noting that this year is the thirtieth anniversary of the band’s megahit album The Real Thing, and that next year is the thirty-fifth anniversary of their debut, We Care a Lot. So whatever is going on, it could have something to do with one of those occasions.
(The only Faith No More song I can think of that features frequent references to a mountain is “Ashes to Ashes,” from 1997’s Album of the Year. But that record isn’t celebrating a significant anniversary, so…)
We’ll find out in about twenty-six hours! ‘Til then, speculate recklessly in the comments section below, or point out an obvious FNM/mountain connection of which I haven’t thought.
