About Faith No More
Faith No More formed in San Francisco in the early 1980s. However, it wasn’t until the release of their now legendary, multi-platinum certified third album The Real Thing (1989) that the group received huge recognition.
The Real Thing featured Falling To Pieces; a song that soon became one of Faith No More's trademark tunes. The album was the first to include vocalist Mike Patton and was released by Slash Records.
The group followed the success of The Real Thing with Angel Dust in 1992. Faith No More, and their lead singer Mike Patton, released no less than five singles off the album. Standout singles included Midlife Crisis and the cover of the Lionel Richie’s Easy.
The latter almost didn't make the album. It was originally planned as a b-side but repeated performances of the song led the group to release it as a single in December 1992. Easy became one of the group’s biggest singles.
Faith No More released two more albums, 1995’s King For A Day... Fool For A Lifetime and 1997's Album Of The Year, before announcing their split in 1998.
The group reunited in 2009 for The Second Coming Tour. It was their first tour in over a decade and included concerts in Europe, South America, Oceania and the United States. The group kicked off the tour in the UK. They headlined London’s Brixton Academy before playing Download Festival.
During their regroup, the band released two highly successful greatest hits albums: The Very Best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection (2009) and Midlife Crisis: The Very Best of Faith No More (2010).
Faith No More confirmed in 2014 they would release a seventh studio album. The collection, titled Sol Invictus, is due for release in May 2015.
