A slow few days on the Faith No More news front so a slimmed down volume today.

  • A slightly tendentious festival rumour. We expect Faith No More to play a Swedish festival but which one? Could it be Metaltown in Gothenburg? The dates  – 26-27 June – fit and the site currently features a poll asking which is Mike Patton’s best band. 
  • Mike Patton’s record label Ipecac has relaunched its website.
  • Belated reaction from the Hovefestivalen organisers on getting Faith No More to play at their festival in Norway on Thursday 25 June. Melvin Benn said: “Their headline performance at Phoenix in 1993 is still ringing in my ears. This is a hell of a coup for Hove! Faith No More’s music remains relevant today and their influence over today’s younger bands is huge.”
