Back in November, Mike Patton revealed that not only did Faith No More have no plans to record, but that they had literally nothing in the works. Now, Patton makes it sound like the reunion has pretty much come to an end.
When asked whether Faith No More’s reunion was still happening by BelieverMag.com, Patton had the following to say:
“It’s sort of petered out. We’re also maybe a little too conscious for our own good. Meaning there’s a lineage of bands that maybe did some nice things and then needed the cash and got back together and basically just sprayed diarrhea over their entire body of work. We’re very worried about that. We don’t want to overdo it.”
Granted, Patton and Faith No More have made it clear from the beginning that they never wanted to appear as if they were simply playing for the cash. And even though they’ve been selective in the amount of shows they played, they have been back together since 2009. So while some bands might not care about overstaying their welcome (cough, cough), it’s admirable that Faith No More are being cautious. Still, for those who did miss that chance to see them live last time around, this is definitely sad news. Here’s hoping that Faith No More will decide to do some proper “goodbye” shows at the last minute.
