Faith No More:

“It’s with a heavy, heavy heart we acknowledge the passing of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley. He was a reckless and caterwauling force of energy who delivered with conviction and helped set us on a track of uniqueness and originality that would not have developed the way it had had he not been a part. How fortunate we are to have been able to perform with him last year in a reunion style when we re-released our very first record. His enthusiasm, his sense of humor, his style and his bravado will be missed by so many. We were a family, an odd and dysfunctional family, and we’ll be forever grateful for the time we shared with Chuck.”

Mike Patton Says Faith No More Are On An “Extended Break”, Wants To Release More Music With Dead Cross

Mike Patton was recently interviewed by Full Metal Jackie, and revealed the Faith No More are on an “extended break,” He also discussed Dead Cross and his hopes of releasing more music with the group. You can read his statements regarding those topics below.

Patton said the following when asked if he had anything to share about Faith No More’s current status:

“No, I would share but I don’t know anything. So, we’re kind of on a extended break and if something happens, it’ll happen organically and naturally but I kind of don’t think it will. I kind of feel like we’ve tipped the scales a little bit, but we’ll see, who knows? I’ve learned my lesson not to say ‘No.’”

He then added:

“It’s one of those things, kind of like going to a family reunion and get along with your uncle and you’re like, ‘Oh, we’re going to go to the next BBQ. Fine.’ It’s really the way it is for us.”

He also said the following when asked if Dead Cross would continue:

“I think we should. It’s going so well and it feels really good — we get along real well. I don’t see why we shouldn’t put out a few more records and keep touring. So, we’ll see. I’ve learned to not make too many promises in advance, so, who knows? [laughs]”

Faith No More Premiere “Cone Of Shame” Music Video

Faith No More have premiered a new video for their song “Cone Of Shame.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Sol Invictus,” which is available now. A limited 7″ of the track will be available as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday (November 25) as well.

Billy Gould said the following:

“This is one of those tracks that had to be a video, really, because it lends itself so much to visual imagery. Given the song’s sense of Americana, it would have been easy to shoot this in Arizona or New Mexico, but having been to Macedonia several times, there’s a vibe there that I felt wouldn’t be out of place as a backdrop to this song. Goce Cvetanovski, as a director, understood this immediately; he knew exactly what to do with it, and along with an amazing cast, has managed to create something very dark, and beautifully cinematic.”
