Faith No More reforming?

28th Nov 08 (Fri) 6 comments

Update (2/24/09): Per Pitchfork and Tripwire, the band is set to reunite for some European dates in 2009.  The line-up will be their touring lineup from 1997: vocalist Mike Patton, keyboardist Roddy Bottum, bassist Billy Gould, drummer Mike Bordin, and guitarist Jon Hudson.  I’ll post dates when/if they come in.

OK, so I think I need to get my hands on a Kerrang magazine… their website has a blurb about a Faith No More reformation.  Mike Patton (their singer in the good era of FNM) talked about the possiblility of a future reunion in Jan 2008.  In other press since then, he didn’t rule it out, but he said it was unlikely.

OK, so anyone have this most recent Kerrang (with Metallica on the cover)?  Does it offer up anything more than speculation?  Or is the “reformation” something with Dio as the singer? :rolleyes:

11/29/08 Update (from Blabbermouth): According to U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine, industry insiders suggest that hugely infuential ’90s alt-metal band FAITH NO MORE is planning to return next year. Kerrang! understands that a number of U.K. venues have been placed on hold for shows from the band next spring, while U.K. festival appearances are rumored to follow in the summer. Founding bassist Bill Gould told Kerrang! “If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven’t spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn’t anything to talk about, and I’m pretty sure that if you were to contact [Mike] Patton [vocals], he would tell you the same thing.” played down the speculation, telling

Free Celldweller

I’ve been a fan of the musician currently known as Celldweller for, geez, who knows how many name changes… :-) Anyway, I thought I already posted a blog along these lines, but I s’pose I haven’t… perhaps I just dreamt it.

Celldweller‘s got a free demo track up on his Fixt Music imprint.  Go Here for a free download demo version of “Birthright.”  It’s from his upcoming album [1]

Celldweller started as Brainchild in 1992 (or so), then went by Circle of Dust [2], worked with/produced other hard-industrial acts Argyle Park & Klank, then collaborated with (magician) Criss Angel with Angel Dust [3], then officially started going by Celldweller with his debut in 2003 (Celldweller was the moniker he formerly only used as producer).

His music is what I’d call melodic hard industrial.  Very catchy, hooky, danceable, but with a definite edge.  He’s totally indie (CDBaby artists represent!)… but regardless of no major label presence, if you’ve watched movie trailers in the past 5 years, you have heard his music (most notably on Spidey trailers).

Anyway, go download a free track.  Also, check him out on the MySpaces.

Oh, and rarely can an artist write a song that’s so hooky that I don’t get sick of listening to 3.5+ hours of the same song (remixed)… the Take It & Break It, Volume 2 collection of “Frozen” is stunningly fresh [4] after 3 jam-packed CDs of the. same. song. :-)

Disengage is a fabulous record and very similar to Celldweller now, but maybe a touch darker…
