Faith No More announce Sol Invictus, the seminal rock band’s first album in 18 years

on February 10, 2015, 11:30am

It’s been 18 years since Faith No More has released a new studio album. That’ll change on May 19th, when the Mike Patton-led outfit releases Sol Invictus, the long-awaited follow-up to 1997’s Album of the Year, through Reclamation Records and Ipecac Recordings.

The album was self-produced by Faith No More’s Bill Gould and recorded in their Oakland, California studio. In a recent interview, Gould discussed the album, saying, “What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch … And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of ‘space.’ Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good.”
