I’m not usually one for evangelising for Faith No More – music is such a subjective thing – but fan Bobby B Better has emailed me with this excellent idea and, as he has done all the work for me, here’s how you can help spread the word of Faith No More to the American media.

Here’s Bobby’s mail in full:

“So finally the US tour is becoming a reality. I know we are all excited. As I see it, if we are to have any hope of any new material, future tours, etc., the US tour has got to be a great success. As you can see by Faith No More’s non-headlining status at Coachella and the lack of media interest, it’s going to be an uphill battle. The only consistant radio play they get in the US is Epic. Once in a blue moon you might hear Midlife Crisis or Last Cup of Sorrow and that’s it. They are going to need all the help they can get.

My suggestion is that we, the fans, blitz the media with requests for Faith No More in support of their tour. We are fortunate in the US to have quite a few national media venues that could feature them (and have featured them in the past). I am sure they will play New York and Los Angeles (where most of these shows are taped) and would be able to appear while on tour. I have compiled a list below and how to request an appearance, more airplay, etc. If you can think of any more, please post them here. Believe it or not, fan e-mail campaigns have influenced programming in the past (i.e. the 2nd season of Jericho). I also encourage all of you to request (e-mail, phone, etc.) FNM at your local House of Blues, other concert venues, radio stations, magazines, etc. Just remember that every airplay, appearance, and interview is an advertisement for the band which can contribute to a sucessful tour. Anyways, it can’t hurt.”
