Metal Memories: The Time I Discovered Faith No More and My Life Was Forever Altered

It had been rumored and speculated about ever since the band first announced that they were reuniting several years ago, but early last month it became 100% official: for the second time in less than a year, one of my favorite bands ever will be releasing a new album for the first time since I was in high school. Of course this is exciting news (that, until about five or six years ago, I would never have guessed would ever be happening again), and — with some amount of trepidation — I’m really trying to be optimistic about it. But that’s not what I’m here to tell you about.

By this point, I’m assuming any of you who would care at all about this band’s upcoming seventh album have already seen most of the information currently available — and probably even listened to one of the two pre-released singles that have come out so far. So I’m not really intending (or expecting) to inform anybody here. Instead, I’d like to take this opportunity to share an anecdotal description of my own discovery of the band, dating back multiple decades; perhaps to offer a little bit of insight into myself as a writer and a fan. I don’t know whether anyone will actually care about any of this, but considering how influential this was in my formative music-listening years, I felt like I ought to take the time to write it.

Holy Shit! Could this be a New Faith No More Song?!

Yet another entry into our series of posts about bands that are touring BUT NOT NEAR ME…

Last night in Buenos Aires, Argentina, apparently Faith No More played a song that nobody has been able to identify as one of their encores, and speculation has been running rampant as to whether it could be an indication of new material from the band??

It seems nobody knows anything definitive right now, but definitely keep an ear out, hopefully there may be some sort of news forthcoming!
