Do not adjust your set: FAITH NO MORE control the vertical, they control the horizontal, and they are about to take you into the Twilight Zone, to a place where 17 universes collide and even STEFFAN CHIRAZI gets confused. A zone where their new album 'The Real Thing' plays continuously in all dimensions, where the band performs at a venue near you this very week!? And a zone where all mysteries are solved, where all truths are known, and all questions are answered - even this
Faith No More released the third single from The Real Thing on July 2nd 1990. Falling To Pieces | Story Behind The Song | Raw Magazine | 1990. The day MIKE PATTON replaced Chuck Mosley as FAITH NO MORE's singer, he immediately recognised the pressures that would fall on him and the major tensions within the band. The result? 'Falling To Pieces', a heartfelt statement and a classic song... When Faith No More first hit these shores to play a highly anticipated set of dates at L
Faith No More's third studio album was released thirty one years ago on June 20th 1989. In 2019, to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their first album with Mike Patton we asked you to send us your questions for the core members of FNM - Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum and Billy Gould. The response was extraordinary! As a drummer I've always been curious as to why you play your rack toms so flat. Especially with such big tom sizes. I've met you in person, you're a short dude.
It's near-heatwave time again and Faith No More are Founding off their conquest of British shores. In '87 they made a splash with the unlikely radio-hit 'We Care A Lot', in '88 they showed vocalist Chuck the door, in '89 they gave us 'The Real Thing' and new boy Mike Patton and then...

Ho-hum. But listen up, suckers! Are you tired of lifeless, bloodless interviews? Fed up with tales of studios and producers, record company and management politics? Do you thirst for tales of organised crime, government corruption and mass murderers? Thought so... Pull up a chair then and make yourself comfortable because FNM bassman Bill Gould has put on his best Mac Bygraves voice to say....

SO FAITH No More have proven that they can sell out the major venues in this country; now they have to show that they can perform on the big stages. Judged on tonight's showing they've still got some way to go in this department.

We're worried. Very worried. It's Monday morning, and IRISH JAEGA should've returned from her weekend on-the-road jaunt with FAITH NO MORE. She should be at her desk, diligently sub-editing the latest spectacular instalment of 'The Week In Metal'. But she ain't. She's nowhere to be found. Suddenly, Geoff Barton's telephone rings.

Faith No More's smash single from 'The Real Thing' was released on January 29th 1990 "Mean, Vicious, chunky and Funky, Faith No More continue to break barriers with their brain-scrambling amalgamation of seemingly counteracting styles. Rap with Metal? No problem mate. Funk with Hardcore overtones? Faith No More have it in hand. Hell, there's even a classical piano break at the end! FNM are the band to take Hard Rock into the '90s." - RIP Magazine 1990 Faith No More have over
