Gaffa
“It is fascinating when you hear them mix songs from throughout his career how they utterly refuse to adapt to the current rules. A hard metal slice goes into bossa nova together with a ballad, some kind of mutated funk and pure popg. It’s real punk and fucking damn good.”

CONCERT: Faith No More to replace Foo Fighters at Rock Werchter

June 22nd, 2015|Faith No More, News, Tour dates|3 Comments

Faith No More will return to Belgium this Thursday to play at Rock Werchter -arguably the largest music festival on the continent.

FNM replace the Foo Fighters, ruled out due to Dave Grohl’s leg injury. Glastonbury – this is how you replace the Foos.

Rock Werchter stated:

“Faith No More and Royal Blood graciously saved the day by marking their calendar on Thursday June 25th, which means a double dose of rock is added to the bill. Faith No More was in popular demand by the festival audience. The festival organisation is pleased to have added them to the Rock Werchter 2015 line-up in extremis.”

Faith No More will top the bill on Thursday – after Florence and the Machine, the replacement Glastonbury headliners.

And this article is brilliant from Werchter on how they went about replacing Foo Fighters. It includes this tidbit:

“For Faith No More, a Boeing is being chartered to get the band and their gear to Sweden in time for their next show on Friday 26 June.”

Faith No More placed Rock Werchter in 1993.

Faith No More at Hellfest setlist and photos

June 20th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Tour dates|5 Comments

Faith No More headlined the main stage at Hellfest in France on Saturday night as their European tour continued.
The band were in sparkling form and treated the enthusiastic crowd to six cuts from Sol Invictus, though Sunny Side Up was again not played meaning that the next single has not been played in the last 11 shows since it was performed in Milan on 2 June.

Orange is the new White

The band renamed the festival Heavenfest and Mike Patton spent the second half of the show clad in an oversized orange t-shirt after swapping shirts with a security guard during Easy.

The tour continues at the Graspop festival in Belgium on Sunday.

Faith No More at the Roundhouse night 1 reviews

June 18th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Sol Invictus reviews, Tour dates|0 Comments

The UK media and blogosphere have spoken – here are their verdicts on last night’s Faith No More gig at the Roundhouse in London.

The Guardian

Mike Patton remains a driven, hypercharismatic front man, ladling bile and malice over the sourly anthemic Ricochet. The Gentle Art of Making Enemies is all Black Sabbath riffs and it’s obvious why Faith No More have just played at Download, but they’re so much more than a metal band: the knowing bombast of new track Matador swells into high camp like Bowie at his most outré.

Evening Standard

Singer Mike Patton, pictured, was in combative mood, beginning every song in a crouch, legs splayed, as though ready to take a punch. Now 47, the affectionate crowd chanted “You fat bastard” at him. “That’s the London we know and love,” retorted keyboard player Roddy Bottum.

Bottum’s work was often what lifted the band above a more brutish guitar assault, especially on the sophisticated, climactic new one, Matador. They also showed a softer side by covering The Commodores’ smooth classic Easy, with no sign of iconoclasm or even a raised eyebrow.

Faith No More Followers

Here is friend of the site Jim right on point on what a great show we missed.

“Faith No More looked happy and full of purpose as they blasted through ‘Caffeine’, glided through ‘Evidence’ and powered through ‘Epic’. The crowd broke into a ‘You Fat Bastards’ chant with Roddy agreeing ‘That’s it, that’s the one we know’, before picking up his acoustic and ‘Black Friday’. ‘Ricochet’, ‘Midlife Crisis’ and ‘Gentle Art Of Making Enemies’ certainly sent the mosh pit wild, the funky interlude in ‘Midlife’ causing a few puzzled expressions. We were happy to see a few ‘guardian angels’ in the brutal whirlpool section of the crowd picking up fellow moshers and aiding the fallen, a real sense of brotherhood down there. “

Black Country Rock

The band were all in excellent form. “Evidence” was a particular example of this with the “Miss You” Stones vibe that contrasted with the rawer surrounding material. It illustrated how Mike Patton is three vocalists in one. He has his characterful baritone, his razor sharp rap style and his death metal growl. He bounced around like a prize fighter, ready to enter the fray.

The stage presentation added to the sense of drama. With everything and everyone clad in white with some rather fetching floral displays, the use of colour wash lighting simply but successfully altered the backdrop from song to song. There was also a guy in a gimp costume who did as Patton commanded for the opening song and encores. Not sure what is brought to the party or even if it was a party that I wanted to go to.

And Gigwise have a great gallery

Two glowing reviews for Faith No More Glasgow show from mainstream UK press

June 15th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Sol Invictus reviews, Tour dates|3 Comments

Reviewers were out in force last night for Faith No More’s show at the O2 Academy in Glasgow. Here are two from the mainstream Scottish and UK press.

Daily Telegraph

“The volume was punishing, the lighting restless and intense. When Patton sang into a distorted microphone made from a taxi radio, shouted into a loudhailer or just opened his throat and screamed down the mic it was a physically affecting experience, the sound combining with the monolithic noise of the band and the aggressive pulsing lights to produce a head-ringing sensory overload.

It was disorientating noise terror, but was as likely to be followed by their cover of the pop soul classic Easy Like Sunday Morning or an easy listening version of Midlife Crisis as it was by yet another aural assault.”

The Herald

“Sol Invictus itself provided evidence they’ve not blunted their ideas, with a playfulness around sturdy rock structures, including some pop undertones on a rousing Superhero. The noise was consistently furious, with the rhythm section of Mike Bordin and Billy Gould propulsive, but that quirkier nature delivered an added spark, including an ear-splitting Midlife Crisis that casually, effortlessly, dropped in a snippet of Boz Scaggs tune Lowdown halfway through. The Academy, and Glasgow, may not see better this year.”
