Man On Man’s (Faith No More) “Daddy” Video Returns To YouTube

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have announced that their video for “Daddy” has officially returned to YouTube. This news comes after the clip was previously removed due to “sexual violations.”

YouTube issued the following statement to Rolling Stone:

“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it. We also offer uploaders the ability to appeal removals and we will re-review the content.”

The band also commented:

“It’s clear tech companies are lacking in representation and therefore discriminate against skin color, age, sex, and sexuality. Even if YouTube does value and promote diversity, the truth is, the industry is still playing by straight men’s rules. It’s devaluing when we see Google monopolize on our Pride but do so little to actually enhance and protect the LGBTQIA+ digital experience. We’re asking for an equitable playing field.”

Man On Man (Faith No More) Premiere “Daddy” Video

Man On Man, the band featuring Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum and his boyfriend Joey Holman, have premiered a new video for their new song “Daddy.“ Bottum told Rolling Stone the following:

“We’re setting out ultimately to document this odd time in the history of the world and to address the importance of creativity and togetherness. The statement of the song and video for ‘Daddy’ maybe is a celebration of love in isolation and is a love letter to the not-so-distant past of a place and time where we communed physically together with our queer community.”

Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum Announces New Project Man On Man

Faith No More‘s Roddy Bottum: “There’s No Plans Right Now To Record Any New Music”

Faith No More will be hitting the road this year, but they will be doing so without new music. During a recent interview with Kerrang!, keyboardist Roddy Bottum confirmed that the band currently have no plans to record new material.

Bottum said the following:

“You know, there’s no plans right now to record any new music, there’s no plans at all. I think we’re all at an age, or at a time in our lives, where looking back at what we’ve done is a profound place to be. I’m super-proud of what we’ve done in a way that I haven’t been before. I think maybe some years ago it did feel a little bit dirty, like we were taking advantage of the world by just going out there and playing old songs, but for whatever reason I’m in a different place with that right now.

I think our legacy speaks for itself in the way the world is right now. It’s refreshing and it’s appropriately provocative to throw ourselves into the world again. It’s a good example of eccentric leftism, if you will.”

He also added the following about returning to the touring circuit:

“I think all of us were at the point collectively where we felt like what we had done five years ago in reforming, and the subsequent recording and touring of that recording [‘Sol Invictus‘], was an unfinished task. There were places that we didn’t go, things we didn’t do, and ways that we would have liked to perform but hadn’t. The option to do it again was still there, but it kind of took us a while to get our head around how we wanted to do it, and what the impetus for going forward was.”
