'Sol Invictus' is not just 'the upcoming album from Faith No More'. 'Sol Invictus' is the first album in 18 years from a legendary, cult status band. The anticipation for this one is through the roof. The last time Faith No More fans were treated to a full album of original music was way back in the late 90's, with 1997's 'Album of the Year' (yes, that was the title). The breakup of the band swiftly followed in '98 followed by a decade of silence (from the band itself, of course; side projects, on the other hand, abounded). The band finally reformed in 2009 for The Second Coming Tour, but the direction of the band post-tour was not yet known. However, on May 4th, the band posted on their Twitter account a photo of frontman Mike Patton accompanied by the message "the reunion thing was fun, but now it's time to get a little creative." This created excitement within the fan base, which was them multiplied by the debuting of two new songs - "Motherfucker" and "Superhero" - at Hyde Park on July 4th. All that remained was for the long-awaited announcement of a new album. It was on September 2nd that this day came, with Bill Gould revealing to Rolling Stone that the band had begun work on a new album, which was tentatively set for an April release the following year. And finally, on February 10th, 2015, the band officially announced that the album would be titled 'Sol Invictus' (meaning 'Unconquered Sun') and would be released on May the 19th.
So now we wait. Just a little bit longer.
Promo copies are out…
Love to get my hands on a promo copy – hope someone decides to share!
So hyped for this album!
Over the last day or so, the album has appeared (on and off) in Soulseek, Goseek and the like. Track lengths and file sizes all look very legit…. can anyone verify this?
dude says it has been leaked on dropbox… really? smh
Can’t post links, so it’s the better I can do.
god damn, cant you give us a clue at least
It’s against the rules to report an album on a File Hosting site.
alright, so check on /mu/ now
Dropbox O.o ???
It’s o /mu/, but i can’t edit. sorry for the dropbox thing.
Still not complete, missing Separation Anxiety.
not missing. check again.
Awesome. It’ll be on KL in full soon for those waiting for a complete download.
what does kl stand for?
can you send the link by pm?
It’s a 4chan thing, you can easily find the thread by searching.
However, the leaks seem to differ. One leak says that the 320 kbs download is ~102 MB download, while another claimed it was a ~92 MB download.
The original files are 128 kbps, so anything higher than that is a transcode and a waste of space on your HD.
Oh ok, thanks for clearing it out. :)
Thanks. I had a 320 version and wondered why it sounded bunk. Need a wav/flac leak! (Or just patience for 3 more weeks :) )
Nevermind the DropBox: Getmetal has it.
All versions out, are transcodes
I am reporting a confirmed, good leak at Museek.info. Good stuff!!
Loving the new album.

Any versions “out there” that don’t sound like shit yet?!?!
