Sol Invictus, Faith No More’s follow-up to Album of the Year no one thought would ever happen, arrives on May 19 via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings. Can you guys and gals wait that long for the real thing? It wil probably end up being the album of THIS year.
“What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch,” explained Bill Gould in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of “space.” Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. “
Sol Invictus was produced by Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio. All dates for their North American tour sold out faster than you can say ,”Don’t look at me- I’m ugly in the morning!!!!”
