While there was speculation abound about a possible reunion for one of the big U.S. festivals (maybe helped along a bit by our own rumor-mongering), all hope was lost when most of line-ups were announced. But what was once only a rumor is now official: Faith No More will reunite for a summer tour.
As confirmed tonight by his label and publicist, Mike Patton has announced that Faith No More will be reuniting for a European summer tour. While no other info has been given, we’ve been told that the tour will only take place in Europe, the dates are “to come” and there are absolutely no plans to tour the States. We’ve also been informed that Patton — as presumed — will not be doing interviews about the subject. So start booking your time now with Imperial Teen to try and get the word from Roddy Bottom.
Faith No More’s last performing line-up consisted of Patton, Bottom, drummer Mike Bordin, bassist Billy Gould and guitarist Jon Hudson. No word yet if iconic “Epic” guitar-soloist (and primary guitar player for most of the band’s existence) Jim Martin, or original singer Chuck Mosely will be involed.
