Alt-metal rockers Faith No More have either brass balls, unshakable confidence or they just stumbled upon a good marketing gimmick in calling their newest single, “Motherf—er. ” The San Francisco-based band hasn’t released an album in 17 years so they may need to get profane.
Even the accompanying PR photo shows the band looking menacing, dressed in tuxedos and holding champagne flutes–but with a person in bondage on all fours held with a leash beneath them. Maybe he is the beast that was/is the record industry? (The new release is on the band’s own label, Reclamation Records.) Their new material is influenced by The Cramps, Link Wray and Siouxsie and The Banshees, says bass player Bill Gould, in an interview with Revolver. The still untitled album is scheduled to drop in April 2015.
