Faith No More to Release First Album in 18 Years, Plot U.S. Tour

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... r-20140902

By Christopher R. Weingarten | September 2, 2014

Influential alterna-metal iconoclasts Faith No More are set to release their seventh album — their first in 18 years — in April of 2015, bassist Bill Gould tells Rolling Stone. The record will be a totally independent product — produced by Gould, recorded in their Oakland rehearsal space and released on their own imprint, Reclamation Records (which will be distributed by frontman Mike Patton's long-running label, Ipecac Recordings).

"The name has to do with the fact that we realized we were free from our recording obligations," says Gould. "We weren't touring, we have these songs that we were working on — that we think are pretty cool — and why don't we just do our own imprint and kind of reclaim our future, in a way? We own the future more than we ever have."

Though no dates have been booked, the band is planning a full U.S. tour around the album's release. Since their return to the stage in 2009, they've only played five American cities.

The album's first single, "Motherfucker," a song they premiered in London's Hyde Park in July, will be released on a seven-inch due for November 28th release and limited to 5,000 copies as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday. The B-side will be a remix by electronic art-pop sound designer J.G. Thirlwell.

We caught up with Gould to find out how a band of industry veterans is carving their own path.

How far along are you into the new record?
We're actually pretty far into it.

Does the record have a name yet?
No, no, we're not there yet. We're just comfortable talking about the fact that we're making one. [Laughs.]

How long have you been playing with the idea?
We've been working on this idea for probably a year and a half. We live in different cities and all have other things going on, so it's a matter of checking in and focusing and working little by little.

Has it been hard to keep it a secret?
People ask me all the time, "What are you doing now? You're working all the time, but what the hell are you doing?" And you can't say anything. "Oh, you know, just working on stuff; working on some projects." Who wants to start hype with nothing behind it, you know?

What would you say the new stuff sounds like?
I mean... [Laughs.] What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we're doing reflects where we've gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch. And I think there's parts that are very powerful and there's parts that have a lot of "space." Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it's always going to sound like us. It's just what we do, that makes us feel good. Hopefully it doesn't sound like a bunch of 50-year-old men... which we are! [Laughs.]

What would you say is the defining feature of the material you're working on now?
If I can give it an adjective? There's going to be a lot of space and scope — big, big sound-stage space — but I also think there's gonna be a lot of those things that we already have. All I can say is what we're doing just feels right.

What are some of the things that you guys have picked up in the last 17 years that you bring to a session now?
We play better. When we got back together to do those reunion shows, we were in rehearsal and we all play the songs better; we're better musicians. That was a huge deal. Songs that we were really pushing when we wrote them came pretty easily.

When was your contract up?
I think that we were officially free from it as of four or five months ago. We wrote a letter saying that we consider that we're free and clear from our obligations and they confirmed it.

No shit?
Yeah. So that was a big deal. Back in the day, we were a weird band that had to tour a lot. We were constantly fighting to get our label's attention and to get behind us. We toured a lot, and in some ways, I think we're a little shell-shocked from that, even still — 17 years later. When we had these songs and we were working on stuff, and we're trying to be creative and be a real band, there was always this thing over our head like, "Yeah, but are we going to get cut into this meat grinder again?" And there's just something really freeing about knowing that we can make our own decisions… I can't imagine doing it any other way right now.

It's more independent than the records you made in 1985!
Yeah, it's weird and interesting... It's really empowering to say, "Wow, it's our clock; we're doing it on our own time. There is no budget, there is no timeframe — it just has to be good." It's such a pleasure to be working like that.

Is there even one hand in the soup besides the five of you at this point?
I don't think there is; I actually don't think there is.

Are there influences that are coming in from bands that weren't around 17 years ago?
Oh, yeah. Justin Bieber — I don't even know how old Justin Bieber was when we were playing last time — and now, he's a major influence. [Laughs.] We didn't even have the vocoder effect back then. It's amazing how technology is moving forward.

I wouldn't put it past you guys, honestly.
You shouldn't. [Laughs.] A little word of advice: Don't…

Are there younger, newer movements that are influencing you?
I'm only going to answer for myself. I've really gotten into a lot of things, stuff outside the country: Balkan-influenced stuff, stuff that goes outside Western ways of thinking about music that can be really powerful, but not in ways that are tried-and-true rock & roll ways? For example, there's this Bulgarian guy Ferus Mustafov who does this crazy shit; there's no rock & roll in it at all. But there are just things that he does. Musicians are musicians; there's just certain ways that they attack what they do that you key off of that.

In 1992, you guys were a square peg, you didn't fit into Headbanger's Ball, you didn't exactly fit into 120 Minutes... Where do you guys fit in now?
It's like a hexagonal peg now. [Laughs] In a lot of ways, it's really more of a challenge. But we can't think of it like that; we think we've got something good and that's about as far as we can control it. And actually, it's really interesting for us because it was always a struggle back in the day when we were playing and making music — it felt like we were never really getting it over the net with people. To where, here it is 15 years later, people actually want to hear what we do and the stuff we did actually lasted. And, to me, that's it — that means we succeeded [and] that's totally great. And that's the thing that makes us want to do it again.

Would you please get rid of the hall of flame? Obviously anyone who was interested in it had more than ample time to read it now. I'm just really trying to foregt about that piece of shit Denise as much as possible. And I think it is pretty much juvenile keeping it up. Will you please forgive me and take it down? I'd really appreciate it. Please let me know. Thanks a lot. Happy Holidays, take care, peace!

Well, Good. After 18 years? I hope we get a double LP at the very minimum. I'll wait until the record hits and dates are posted before getting excited at this point. Hope everything works like I hoped it would 18 years ago. Cheers to hoping.
