Fans of Faith No More were psyched when the band reunited in 2009 for a reunion tour, and even more excited the following year when they came to the United States. Hopes for anything more than it being a reunion tour were dashed in 2013, when the band stopped touring, and Mike Patton said that the reunion had “petered out.” Then they decided to launch a Twitter account, in which they promised to get more creative. That was followed by them playing two new songs in London, then announcing a new album.
We’ve known that Record Store Day, November 28th, will bring a 7″ from the band, with a studio version of “Motherfucker” (above), one of the two new songs they played in London. The B-side of the single will be a remix of the song by J.G. Thirlwell. The single, which will be limited to 5,000 copies, is a partnership between Ipecac Recordings (which Patton co-owns) and Faith No More’s own Reclamation Recordings. However, it’s been announced that several weeks after the vinyl pressing, a digital version of the single will be available. Not to mention, you’ll have a shitty YouTube version will probably about 20 minutes after record stores open.
