Mr. Bungle hit the stage at Knotfest Chile in Santiago on December 11 and were joined by some very special guests. Mr. Bungle was joined by Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser and vocalist Derrick Green for a cover of the Sepultura classic "Territory," and you can check out the full performance above.
The show is also one of the first performances by Mike Patton after canceling a bunch of Faith No More shows in the interest of his mental health. Patton's struggles began during the pandemic, and was diagnosed with agoraphobia as COVID got worse. Coupled with heavy drinking, Patton subsided into a heavy depression.
"My initial response to the pandemic was: 'I love this shit!' It allowed me to be an antisocial motherfucker!" Patton told The Guardian. "I had maybe three months of that: 'This is fucking awesome!' Then something changed – and not for the better. Because I was isolated so much, going outside was a hard thing to do. That's a horrible thing. And the idea of doing more Faith No More shows — it was stressful. It affected me mentally. I don't know why, but the drinking just … happened."
And if you're looking for more Mr. Bungle to jam today, the band is also streaming their entire 2020 livestream The Night They Came Home below.
