Bass player Bill Gould discussed the band’s new songs, which make up their first album in 18 years. Speaking to Revolver, he said the song ‘Cone of Shame’ is “blues-based rock and roll” with “influences from Link Wray, Cramps, and a little black metal.” Meanwhile of ‘Matador’, which the group played live in 2012, he said: “Parts of it remind me of the first Siouxsie and the Banshees album. We used real pianos and that brings this organic quality to it to the music.”

The LP, which is yet to be titled, is due for released in April 2015 and will be marked by a US tour. The album’s first single, ‘Motherfucker’, will be released on seven-inch on November 28 and limited to 5,000 copies as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday. The band debuted the song during a show at Hyde Park this July. Of the forthcoming album, Gould added: “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.”

Having split in 1998, Faith No More reformed in 2009 and have since toured the world extensively. Their new record will be the band’s first since 1997’s ‘Album of the Year’.
