FAITH NO MORESan Francisco - October 28, 2014Dustin Rabin Photography 2680

Reactivated Bay Area musical chameleons Faith No More have announced their first new album in 18 years will be titled Sol Invictus, released on Mike Patton’s own imprint Reclamation Records/Ipecac on May 19th. Easily one of the most-anticipated albums of not just 2015, but the last few years, Sol Invictus will be the first full album of new music from the band since 1997s acclaimed Album of The Year, released just before the band went on hiatus. Bassist Bill Gould comments:

What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch,” explained Bill Gould in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of “space.” Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. “

 

Press Notes:

Sol Invictus was produced by Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.
