faith-no-more-superheroFaith No More have officially released their new single “Superhero” from the upcoming ablum, which will be the band’s first album in 18 years (listen to the song below). The comeback album title is Sol Invictus, and the long-awaited record is due for release on May 19, 2015.  Among the inspirations behind the new material, the band named The Cramps, Link Wray and Siouxsie and the Banshees. In November 2014′ interview for Revolver Magazine, the band’s bassist Bill Gould said: “It’ll be much different than everything else out there—but that’s sort of the point. It’s a combination of what we don’t hear in the outside world and what we feel is lacking from other bands. And in the end, it will sound like Faith No More.”

On July 4, Faith No More played their first show after a two-year hiatus at Hyde Park in London, supporting Black Sabbath. At that show the band presented the new song “Superhero” for the first time (also known by fans as “Leader of Men”), as well as another new single, “Motherfucker” (check out the live performance of “Motherfucker” from 2014 Hyde Park show below).

The band has also shared its new interview on comics website, where Bill Gould talks about the new single and Faith No More song-writing process: “We kind of make movie scenes for movies that don’t exist. “Superhero” was one of those where it was definitely a superhero comic, I mean that was just the vibe of the song, and when Mike came to me writing words about it, we were already calling it “Superhero.” So it’s kind of like in the DNA; it’s a comic strip”.

Besides, Faith No More recently announced their first North American tour since 2010, the tour dates for which are listed below.
