Rhino to reissue deluxe versions of two Faith No More albums

Posted by on April 23, 2015

If you’re a Faith No More fan, this is already a good year for you. The band’s first album in 18 long years, Sol Invictus, will be released on May 19th. And they’re currently touring in support of the upcoming release, and will continue to do so once it’s out. And while Sol Invictus is already inciting a lot of excitement, the band’s most popular and fan favorite albums are 1989’s The Real Thing and 1992’s Angel Dust. Off the strength of the MTV hits “Epic” and “Falling to Pieces,” The Real Thing‘s combination of funk, metal and rap was the first album with Mike Patton on vocals, and it went platinum. The follow-up was decidedly weirder and less commercial, yet is many FNM fans’ favorite album. Striking while the iron is hot, Rhino Records will be releasing deluxe double-disc versions of both albums on June 9th. Vinyl versions of the albums are planned for August.

While the full track listings haven’t been revealed, here’s some of what will be on them:


The Real Thing:

“Epic” (remix)
“Falling To Pieces” (remix)
“Surprise You’re Dead” (live)
“Underwater Love” (live)
“War Pigs” (Black Sabbath cover) (live)
“Cowboy Song”
“The Grade”

Angel Dust:

“Let’s Lynch The Landlord” (The Dead Kennedys cover)
“Easy” (Commodores cover)
Three live tracks from Munich, Germany
