FAITH NO MORE have confirmed that they will be reuniting in 2020.
Band said in a statement: “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.”
So far announced dates are as follows, with more to be announced soon:
June 13 – Punchestown, Ireland @ Sunstroke Festival
June 20 – Clisson, France @ Hellfest
June 26 – Oslo, Norway @ Tons Of Rock
In a November 2018 interview with Chandler Sorrells of “The Ring, The Cage, and The Stage”, keyboardist Roddy Bottum revealed that he has been writing new material for the next FAITH NO MORE album with bandmates Mike Bordin and Billy Gould.
“I will periodically go to San Francisco and make music with those guys. What we do is a really special, unique thing that we kind of share — especially like me and Mike Bordin and Billy… We were super young — we were, like, 18 [or] 19 years old — when we started making music, so we kind of get in the room and we have a language that speaks really loud and really clear, at least to the three of us.
“I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable in a really sort of family sense,” he added. “And I think we all acknowledge that it’s not something that any of us wanna turn our backs on, and it’s kind of fun to do. So in the hopes of pushing things forward and making new music, we continue to do that, to get together and make new sounds and just have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future.”
