We just shared five studio updates and unfortunately, we don’t expect to see Faith No More on any of these lists. Keyboardist Roddy Bottum recently spoke to Kerrang! discussing the band’s return explaining how it doesn’t necessarily mean they have plans to record new music.
“You know, there’s no plans right now to record any new music, there’s no plans at all. I think we’re all at an age, or at a time in our lives, where looking back at what we’ve done is a profound place to be. I’m super-proud of what we’ve done in a way that I haven’t been before. I think maybe some years ago it did feel a little bit dirty, like we were taking advantage of the world by just going out there and playing old songs, but for whatever reason I’m in a different place with that right now.
I think our legacy speaks for itself in the way the world is right now. It’s refreshing and it’s appropriately provocative to throw ourselves into the world again. It’s a good example of eccentric leftism, if you will.”
Faith No More’s most recent album is 2015’s Sol Invictus. The record has landed on our Top 225 albums of the decade and you can check the list out here.
