Faith No More Album Delayed Due To Litigation

After 18 years of waiting, fans will have to wait a little longer. Faith No More’s highly anticipated new album, "Sol Invictus," has reportedly been delayed indefinitely due to litigation by Warner Bros Records (parent of former label Slash Records), claiming that the band still owes them one more full-length studio album on their contract.

Mike Patton could not be reached for immediate comment, but his agent stated only that the claims were baseless and the band will defend itself vigorously.

“Sol Invictus” was scheduled to be released via Reclamation Recordings, which is distributed by Ipecac Recordings, on May 19, 2015.

First Tool and now this. Next thing you'll tell me is that Wintersun's next album will be delayed as well.

We care a lot, my ass!

This is a big old April Fools. It's been nearly 20 years since the last FNM album so no chance in hell this would happen now. Why would they record and try to release it knowing they couldn't after all this time?

Plus, all the Best Of compilations would definitely have seen out the rest of their contract by now.
