FAITH NO MORE Announces More European Festival Dates
Faith No More recently unveiled a trio of European festival tour dates for 2020, their first since ending the Sol Invictus tour in 2015. We were promised more dates for the European festival circuit, and now we've got a fourth! Faith No More will play the Mad Cool Festival on July 11 in Madrid, Spain alongside artists like Deftones, Pixies, and Billie Eilish.
In 2018, keyboardist Roddy Bottum said he was occasionally traveling to San Francisco to work on new music with the band and "have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future." So no – a new album still isn't entirely out of the question right now.
“I will periodically go to San Francisco and make music with those guys. What we do is a really special, unique thing that we kind of share, especially like me and Mike Bordin and Billy… we were super young, we were like 18, 19 years old, when we started making music, so we kind of get in the room and we have a language that speaks really loud and really clear, at least to the three of us. I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable in a really sort of family sense. And I think we all acknowledge that it’s not something that any of us wanna turn our backs on, and it’s kind of fun to do. So in the hopes of pushing things forward and making new music, we continue to do that, to get together and make new sounds and just have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future.”
