Published May 30, 2014While Faith No More have been staging reunion shows over the past few years, it looked as if the band were cool with just dusting off the hits. Via a newly launched Twitter account, however, the eclectic hard rock outfit are now hinting that new material may now be a, ahem, real thing.
Late last night (May 29), the band alerted fans via their Facebook page that they had just signed up for Twitter. While this is purely speculation at this point, the first message they sent out seems to suggest that the group is no longer happy to just drudge up old tunes onstage.
The tweet reads: "Hey! Stay tuned for more Tweets from Twats!!! The reunion thing was fun, but now it's time to get a little creative."
Nothing has been explained beyond that, but it's expected the band will flesh out their plans sometime soon.
Faith No More had previously balked at the idea of recording new music. Back when the group were playing reunion dates in 2012, vocalist Mike Patton told News.Com.Au., "We're pretty happy with just touring. There was talk, 'Should we write new stuff?' and we all looked at each other and said 'Nahhh, fuck it.' We did work up one new little thing and that was really energizing."
Last year, he also explained to Believer, "There's a lineage of bands that maybe did some nice things and then needed the cash and got back together and basically just sprayed diarrhea over their entire body of work. We're very worried about that. We don't want to overdo it."
Despite getting back together in 2009, Faith No More have not released an LP since 1997's Album of the Year. The outfit did, however, treat that album, 1995's King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime, 1992's Angel Dust and 1989's The Real Thing to vinyl reissues in 2013.
