While the cancellation of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle’s upcoming tour is disappointing to fans, kudos to Mike Patton for being brave enough to step away and take time to heal.

Mike Patton’s official statement:

“Sorry to report that due to mental health reasons, I cannot continue with the currently scheduled Faith No More and Mr. Bungle dates. I have issues that were exacerbated by the pandemic that are challenging me right now. I don’t feel I can give what I should at this point, and I am not going to give anything less than 100 percent. I am sorry to our fans and hope to make it up to you soon. The bands’ support me in this decision, and we look forward to working through this in a healthy way.”
