I haven’t been very excited about anything lately. But when it comes to the new Faith No More record, I’m chomping at the fucking bit for information and updates.

I’ll probably jizz so hard when I purchase the actual album that the managers of whatever record store is lucky enough to get my business will have to call in ServePro afterwards.

Today, I caught wind of an article in something called Faster Louder where Faith No More keys man Roddy Bottum basically tickles my prick with a feather, talking about the band’s comeback LP.

The new Faith No More is called Sol Invictus and will be in stores this May.

“I would say that it really does go back to out roots, and [it’s] really gothic — it’s really sort of in the dark and there’s a lot of somber tones on it,” he said.

“I get gut instincts from simple stripped down sounds, when we do that successfully,” he continued, “and, for me, there is a lot of those moments on the record. Like, not as dense as the place that we usually go, and there’s a lot of places with a really simple instrumentation and pianos — there is a lot of pianos — and a lot of really, concise smart lyrics that can be heard and understood. And those sort of places on the record are the strongest for me.”

Bottum also praised bandmate Mike Patton’s contributions to Sol Invictus.

“He has done a super, super, great job. I’m a huge fan of his lyrics I love what he does lyrically. There are some really fun wordplay [things] that he does, and there is a lot of referencing of us as a core group.”
