Faith No More To Reunite

It’s commonly understood that Mike Patton is a busy man. By nurturing his growing label Ipecac and providing both vocals and general musical direction to Peeping Tom, Fantomas and Tomahawk, few would be surprised if he added yet another straw to the camels back. However, the latest band added to Patton’s bloated schedule will be none other than Faith No More.

The announcement came during a brief promotional push for Tomahawk’s pending album “Anonymous” (due June 19 via Ipecac Records). The Faith No More reunion was practically mentioned as an apathetic aside. Patton spoke of the new Tomahawk album as somewhat subdued and “more organic ” then stated “And just so the cats out of the bag, Faith No More should be touring Europe and Australia early next year.” Amid gasps and camera flashes from the press, Patton mentioned that the band would debut a new album via Ipecac and was currently negotiating distribution assistance from a major label. The bands lineup has not been confirmed by Patton, nor was there any mention of the new albums progress or direction.

More information is expected to follow in the coming days as Patton continues his promotional stint for the new Tomahawk album among other Ipecac releases set for this year.

As a looong time Patton fan this had to be done. I could have worded a few things better but I was quite short on time.
