Adrian Harte, who runs the site newfaithnomore.com, has taken his Faith No More writing to the next level. On September 12th, the new biography on these San Francisco rockers entitled Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More will arrive via Jawbone Press. The 376-page offering was written by Harte and has the full endorsement from the band. The book will also feature interviews with multiple band members, managers, and key figures from their 39-year history.
Bassist Bill Gould commented:
“When I first heard about this Faith No Moe biography, I didn’t know what to think,” said Faith No More co-founder and bass player Bill Gould. “But I have to give credit where it is due. It’s a quality piece. The man has done his research, and it shows. It provided me with more than a few revelations… and I’m in the band.”
About the book:
“Small Victories…” tells how such a heterogeneous group formed, flourished, and fractured, and how Faith No More helped redefine rock, metal and alternative music. The book chronicles the creative and personal tensions that defined and fueled the band, forensically examines the band’s beginnings in San Francisco’s post-punk wasteland, and charts the group’s ascent to MTV-era stardom. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews, the book combines a fan’s passion with a reporter’s perspicacity.
