Faith No More have confirmed they will release a single before they appear at Download later this year.
The single will be called Superhero and will be available to buy as a limited-edition vinyl (remember those?) on March 17th and will be available as a download on March 31st. It follows the launch of Motherfucker last year, their first new song in nearly 17 years.
Bassist Billy Gould has also revealed that their new album is almost complete and should be out later this year, along with a US tour to promote it. Gould adds: “We are armed with the new material and ready for whatever comes our way.”
Gould admitted in an interview last year he’d struggled to convince his bandmates to make an album after their 2009 reunion. He said: “There was a weird caginess they had where they didn’t want to just jump in the ring. I started to think we were just doing this for ourselves. Then little by little, they warmed up to it and decided to contribute more.”
He revealed the band had recorded 10 full tracks and demoed another 15.
With tours already confirmed in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Europe it looks like Faith No More will be very busy this year.
