A few months later, a first musical rapprochement took shape with a project celebrating the American poetess Emily Dickinson.

Faith No More - The Forum London, March 13th 1995

Twenty five years ago Faith No More were on tour promoting King For A Day Fool For A Lifetime in the UK FAITH NO MORE Interview at The Forum, London. March 13th, 1995. By Martin Bate Faith No More are back from the wilderness. It's been nearly three years since their massively successful (in the non-American world) Angel Dust album. During this period they toured for a ridiculously long time, fired their long-time guitarist Jim Martin, searched long and hard for a replacement, finally found one in Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance, recorded an album, parted company with Spruance almost as soon as it was finished and asked keyboard tech Dean Menta to join half an hour later. FNM always seem

Faith No More - Kerrang! Issue 535, March 3rd 1995

Every band goes through a crisis. Someone leaves, someone f**ks up, someone dies. Something happens to make the rest of the band wonder if it's worth carrying on. Faith No More thought about splitting up in 1993. Royal Flush by Mike Peake They'd just finished a rock-till-ya-drop, not entirely pleasant world tour supporting their 'Angel Dust' LP. Four of the band were,to put bluntly, pig sick of the fifth man - Jim Martin - and keyboard player Roddy Bottum was going through his own private hell with a bunch of personal problems. So, band front man Mike Patton, bassist Bill Gould and drummer Mike 'Puffy' Bordin talked about calling it a day. Those words - 'splitting' - were actually mentioned.

Could 2020 Be Mike Patton’s Busiest Year Yet?

It’s no secret that Mike Patton likes to stay active, but with countless projects on the go could this year be the most Patton-tastic ever? In late 2019 Patton’s manager and partner in crime at Ipecac, Greg Werckman, told us the man of a thousand voices "had never been busier". So far this statement is proving to be accurate. Just yesterday Michael Crain, guitarist for Dead Cross, shared two pictures on social media of himself and Patton with the caption “Like two kids in a candy store listening to the new Dead Cross rough mixes.” From recent posts by Scott Ian, and Mr. Bungle, all evidence suggests that the present line-up are indeed re-recording their 1985 demo Raging Wrath Of The Easter

Faith No More - The Pyramid Centre portsmouth, March 2nd 1995

Faith No More officially began their tour of King For A Day Fool For A Lifetime in the UK twenty five years ago RAW Magazine | Issue 171 | March 1995 Childish by Neil Jeffries WEIRD. REALLY. Weirder than usual, even. A lighting stand that falls over. A keyboard gremlin. A guitar gremlin. But weirdest of all, a singer seemingly hell bent on self-destruction. And no, I'm not talking about his periodic bouts of shadow-wrestling when he throws himself to the stage ... I refer instead to his point-blank and increasingly irritating refusal to sing properly. Based on the evidence of Faith No More's sublime new album, King For A Day... Fool For A Lifetime, I'd expected the band to have reached a n
