Faith No More is streaming the brand new song "Superhero" off the upcoming new album "Sol Invictus" below. "Sol Invictus" was produced by Bill Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.
Explains Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum why the band decided to make its first new album since 1997: "We got really bored with what we were doing, and we also felt like there are a whole lot of people out there who look to us to be inspired and encouraged by what we do artistically. So to be doing old songs on a big stage with a lot of people watching over and over, it felt kind of cheap and easy and a little too safe of a place to be. That's not who we are."
