Faith No More have hinted towards a potential comeback, sharing a cryptic message on social media earlier today.
For over three years now, music-lovers have lamented the absence of the great Faith No More.
With its origins being traced back to 1979, it wasn’t until the addition of Mike Patton into the group back in 1988 that the band really took off. Releasing a run of classic albums throughout the late ’80s and ’90s, the band called it quits in 1998.
However, after reuniting in 2009, the group ended up recording Sol Invictus, which was released back in 2015. Chuck in a few Aussie tours during this time, and you’ve got one reunion fans thought would likely stick.
Despite this, the band’s last show to date took place in August of 2016, with fans seeing side projects take precedence soon after, including Mike Patton’s Dead Cross. Now though, it seems like a comeback could be in the works.
Check out Faith No More’s mysterious post:
Taking to social media earlier today, the official Faith No More account shared a rather simple message, accompanying an image bearing their iconic logo with the phrase “psssst…”, before also updating their Facebook cover photo with the same picture.
While such a caption seems to infer that something secret is on the way, no further details have been made clear at this time, with speculation running rife.

This time last year though, Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum explained that members of the band had been working on new music, though he couldn’t make any promises about what might eventuate.
“I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable in a really sort of family sense,” Bottum explained. “And I think we all acknowledge that it’s not something that any of us want to turn our backs on, and it’s kind of fun to do.
“So in the hopes of pushing things forward and making new music, we continue to do that, to get together and make new sounds and just have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future.”
While it remains to be seen whether another Faith No More reunion is on the cards, we’re just hoping that any further announcements might involve an Aussie tour of some variety.
