Everybody’s favorite funkalicious, experimental, and ingenious rock band Faith No More will be returning to the road next summer.
The band have announced their first few shows in five years, which will include performances at: Sunstroke in Kildare, Ireland (June 13), Hellfest in Clisson, France (June 20), and Tons of Rock in Halden, Norway (June 26), with more European festival announcements and U.K. dates officially confirmed.
The band had this to say about their return: “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 string of European shows will mark the band’s first since their last run in 2015 following the release of their (2015) record Sol Invictus (Ipecac/Reclamation Recordings). Sol Invictus came a whole 18 years after the release of the band’s (1997) Album Of The Year and gained praise from Rolling Stone, the New Yorker, and the Los Angeles Times, among many others.
One can only hope that this pattern of performances coming to light will mean something good for the rest of the world outside of Europe and the U.K.
