Despite the lack of a new album, Faith No More will rock through a set of their stellar back catalogue that includes hits such as "We Care a Lot," "Epic," "Midlife Crisis" and, of course, their massive hit "Easy."
The band formed in San Francisco in the early 1980’s but it wasn’t until their now legendary multi-Platinum certified 3rd album, “The Real Thing” in 1989 that the band received recognition. The album featured "Falling To Pieces," a song that has now become one of Faith No More's trademark tunes.
The band followed up the success of "The Real Thing" in 1992 with their big breakthrough album, "Angel Dust." Faith No More and their lead singer Mike Patton released no less than fiuve singles off "Angel Dust" and with the singles "Midlife Crisis" and especially the standout cover version of the Lionel Richie song "Easy." The single almost didn't make the album, originally penned as a b-side, reapeated performances during live shows made the band cofident enough to release it as a single and consequently "Easy" became Faith No More's biggest single in their career.
Faith No More released two more albums, 1995's "King for a Day ... Fool for a Lifetime" and their last regular studio album, 1997's "Album of the Year" before going into an eleven year hiatus.
The band recently reunited for sold-out live shows and released the highly successful Greatest Hits album "The Very best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection" in 2009 and "Midlife Crisis: The Very Best of Faith no More" in 2010.
