Poll: Should Faith No More Make a New Album?
When it was recently announced that Faith No More would be playing shows in the summer of 2020, fans inevitably had one question on their mind: “Does this mean the band is making a new album?”
Well, according to Roddy Bottum, the answer is “no.” The keyboardist recently said that the band is at “an age, or at a time in our lives, where looking back at what we’ve done is a profound place to be” and that “our legacy speaks for itself.” (Funny enough, it was Bottum who in 2018 also said that the band was “periodically” working on ideas for new music… guess that didn’t pan out.)
Is FNM’s decision not to make new music a good thing or a bad thing? For some, it can be hard to think of a band as forward-thinking as Faith No More as a “legacy act.” Others, surely, won’t mind hearing more old classics and fewer new tunes.
