Faith No More – San Francisco’s weirdest offering to the alternative music scene of the 80s and 90s – are returning to the stage in 2020 for the first time since 2015.
“Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap,” the band said in a refreshingly Faith-No-Moreian statement.
So far only three festival dates have been announced. Catch them at the Sunstroke Festival in Ireland, Hellfest in France and Tons of Rock in Norway, but it’s certainly promising news for fans everywhere.
Faith No More first came to commercial prominence with their third album ‘The Real Thing’ in 1989, which featured the single ‘Epic’. Their albums ‘Angel Dust’ (1992) and ‘King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime’ (1995) are two of the great albums of the “alternative” scene of the 90s. Their most recent album ‘Sol Inviticus’ was released in 2015 to much acclaim.
