Revered rockers Faith No More have just stoked their European fans by confirming plans to play in their neck of the woods in 2020. Next summer the band will perform in Europe for the first time in five years, hitting festivals such as Hellfest (June 20), Sunstroke (June 13), and Tons of Rock (June 26).
The good news is that more dates are to come! Commented the guys, “Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap.”
Faith No More dropped their latest album Sol Invictus back in May 2015 via Ipecac/Reclamation Recordings), and it was around that time that they last hit Europe.
Be sure to check out the popular “Cone of Shame” music video, of which Bill Gould previously stated, “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.”
“Cone of Shame” was the third song previewed from Faith No More’s album Sol Invictus, initially debuted at a 2015 Japanese concert.
