He reveals in The Age that some Mike Patton material may make an appearance in May. Sample quote: “Excitingly for fans, a new EP of material is ready and will drop in May. ”We did some stuff with Mike Patton [Faith No More],” 3D says. ”Also Guy Garvey and more great stuff with Damon.” Meanwhile, The Herald Sun reports that “there are also three songs recorded with Faith No More singer Mike Patton” with Del Naja stating: “We’re looking for an opportunity to finish those. Musically, they’re quite mad. We didn’t have the time to take the music to the right place, I’d like to re-look at all that.”
