Faith No More don't have any plans to record new music

In a new interview, Faith No More's Roddy Bottum reveals they don't have any plans to record new music.

In November 2018, Faith No More announced some new shows in Europe and the UK, resulting in fans thinking they're returning with new music.

Speaking to Kerrang!, Faith No More's Roddy Bottum said of their plans to record new music, "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."

The keyboardist adds, "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."

Bottum says of the band's return, "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 [the Sol Invictus album], 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."

Faith No More will play London's O2 Academy Brixton on 16-17 June. Find out more.
