Faith No More have announced that their forthcoming new record – their first since 1997’s Album Of The Year – has been christened Sol Invictus. It has also been revealed that the effort has been scheduled for release on May 19th via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings. Bassist Bill Gould said of the new material:
“What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch. And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of ‘space’. Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good.”
Faith No More will be embarking on a North American tour this spring. Tickets sold out the day they went on sale.
