Faith No More have released their first single from the eagerly anticipated* but unnamed reformation album. The track, Motherfucker, will be officially released for Christmas on the 9 December 2014, but for vinyl lovers Record Store Day on 28 November provides an opportunity to get your crusty fingers on a limited edition 7-inch single (only 5,000 copies).

I expect the single Motherfucker might make a nice album opener. But who knows? They probably have 20 other tracks that could be just as interesting. I can already picture the guys walking nonchalantly on stage out in front of a massive stadium dressed splendidly (as always), and they begin by playing this track:

The new album is being recorded in Oakland with Billy Gould on production duties, and is expected to be released in April 2015… which is too far away methinks as they will be playing at the Soundwave Festival in Australia in February 2015. How are we supposed to sing in glorious unison to the new tunes if we don’t know the fucking words? Get the motherfuckers on the phone…

The band have created a new label Reformation Records which will be distributed by Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings. Faith No More claim that they will dedicate some focus to their fans in the US after the album is released, you have been blessed, or something to that effect.

*Half a million listens in 5 days on SoundCloud is my definition of eagerly anticipated. You go and find your own yardstick.

About noisynoodle

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!

    The Real Thing is my only Faith No More knowledge so far – but that one’s a keeper, so it would be interesting to hear how the sound has evolved over the last 25 years!
