UPDATE: Yes, this was of course an April Fools’ joke. Apologies to anyone who was however briefly fooled and thanks for all your comments. I had thought I’d made it obvious enough but I suppose after six greatest hits anything is possible.

Faith No More are set to release a new compilation to coincide with the band’s return to the United States after a 15-year hiatus later this month.

The two-disc new release, entitled Fool for a Lifetime: The Second Best of Faith No More, will be released on 19 April in record stores in the US and at popular download sites. The first disc comprises Faith No More’s minor hits while the second disc, sure to be a must for fans and completists, will feature live tracks recorded on their comeback Second Coming tour.

In addition a Rhino Records spokeswoman has suggested to us that new Faith No More material may be in the offing. Avril Poisson said: “You’ll just have to wait and see on that one I’m afraid. But we do know that Mike Patton is really pushing for it at the minute as he hasn’t been in a studio in days.”
