'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.
