Faith No More play (the theatre) at the iconic Madison Square Garden on Wednesday 5 August – and they have just got another laudatory write-up in The New York Times.

The Times says:

“Empty rituals, trinkets and fossils,” Mike Patton gargles within the first half-minute of “Sol Invictus” (Reclamation/Ipecac), a rattlingly vital new album by Faith No More. He’s taking aim at religious trappings but maybe also disarming the pomp around, say, a cult-heroic rock band in the midst of an unlikely reunion…Startlingly, “Sol Invictus” feels like more than a reboot; it has genuine ambition, and a growly sense of purpose. Whatever Mr. Patton has to say about rituals, it’s bound to be interesting when Faith No More plays its first-ever show at Madison Square Garden.”
