I met Roddy Bottum years ago when I saw Faith No More perform in New York. I think Limp Bizkit opened for them, if I am remembering things right. But it was a long-ass time ago.
I will say that Roddy was a chill fucking cat, and left quite an impression on me when we met. Such a nice dude.
Roddy’s written an online post that basically claims that while Faith No More’s album is being mixed, Mike Patton still has some vocals to track for the record.
The new album is supposed to come out in May.
Speaking of the ongoing sessions for the disc, Roddy says “it’s been a super unorthodox journey and the outcome is often too weird for the common ear. Having you guys here as a soundboard for us and champions of what we do make that journey worth it. The overwhelming response regarding the tour dates and the upcoming LP is really really profound.”
“Basically it’s a super cheezy sentiment but if there wasn’t a you there wouldn’t be an us so thanks kindly for your support. We’re preparing ourselves for the upcoming onslaught (I’m not privy to violent descriptives but that seems to fit) and we’re going to try and reach as many as you as we can in our process. Sorry if many of you are skipped, geographically on this first go round. We’ll try and fix that.
“We can’t guarantee anything but it’s honestly our intention to not leave anyone out. Thanks for being understanding in this regard. We continue our trek. Billy is finishing mixing the record, we’re working on artwork, MP is finishing the last couple of tracks and he’s done an amazing job. truly. I can only say it sounds like us and it doesn’t in the best possible way. You know what to expect and we are going to honor that expectation in the only way we know how. Big big hug and we’ll see you in just a little bit.”
