Hellfest Festival 2015

July 16th, 2015

Hellfest Festival 2015

@ Clisson, France

19th-21st June 2015

Review by Anna Dumpe and Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

Break out the balloons – it’s birthday time! No, not just mine (although thank you very much), but Hellfest’s big 1-0, the crossing point into double figures, the decade marker.  It’s practically an institution now, not just in France, not just in Europe but across the world with folks coming from every which place to rock n revel. Hellfest is just about the best damn festival out there, so you KNOW this is going to be special.

Provinssirock – Seinajoki Finland

July 14th, 2015

indexprovinssi2015

 The festival Provinssi, formely known as Provinssirock, is one of the oldest summer festivals organized in Finland; the first edition of the festival going back all the way to 1979. The festival is located in the town of Seinäjoki, Western Finland, and one of the best aspects of the festival is its diversity, always mixing different genres of music, from heavy metal to hip hop, from punk to pop, and so on. This year there were about 79,000 festival attendees, making this edition of Provinssi a huge hit. Although the festival started on a Wednesday there were more bands on the last 2 days of the festival, Friday and Saturday, playing in 5 different stages.

Faith No More’s Sol Invictus, the Bay Area band’s first new album in eighteen years, has landed atop international charts with the ten-track release at #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, #6 in the UK and #6 in the United States (#14 on Billboard’s Top 200).

“What this tells me,” said Faith No More founder and bass player Bill Gould, “is that there is a need out there; people want to hear things that exist outside the mold. It makes me feel grateful and it gives me hope.”

“We are honored to be a part of the FNM team and very proud of the success of Sol Invictus,” added Greg Werckman, co-owner of Ipecac Recordings.  “Of course, none of this would have happened without the band delivering such a fantastic record and them having faith in us to handle it properly.” The album was released as a joint partnership between the Faith No More’s own Reclamation Recordings and Ipecac.

In the United States the album also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Music and Independent Album charts as well as #2 on both the Rock and Alternative Album charts.

Faith No More returns to North America this summer, the band launches their European tour on Friday.

FAITH NO MORE To Release SOL INVICTUS On May 19th

February 10th, 2015

Dustin Rabin Photography, Faith No More, FNM, Dustin Rabin

Sol Invictus, Faith No More’s highly anticipated follow-up to Album of the Year, arrives on May 19 via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings.

“What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch,” explained Bill Gould in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of “space.” Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. “

Sol Invictus was produced by Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.

New FAITH NO MORE And MR. BUNGLE Companion Book

November 25th, 2013

bookcover

Despite being listed as an influence on countless notable bands, there has never
been a book that tells the complete story of both Faith No More and Mr. Bungle.
Until now. Author/journalist Greg Prato’s tenth book overall, ‘The Faith No More
& Mr. Bungle Companion,’ serves as both a career overview and analyzation of
both bands – tracing their ups and downs, uncovering quite a few unheard or
uncommon tales, and of course, telling the stories behind such classic albums as
‘The Real Thing,’ ‘Angel Dust,’ ‘Disco Volante,’ and ‘California.’

And many members of today’s top rock bands offer up opinions and memories of
Faith No More and Mr. Bungle exclusively for this book, including Jason Newsted
(Newsted/ex-Metallica), Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Kim Thayil
(Soundgarden), Devin Townsend (Devin Townsend Project/ex-Strapping Young Lad),
Ville Valo (HIM), Johnny Christ (Avenged Sevenfold), Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns N’
Roses), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Angelo Moore (Fishbone), John Garcia
(Vista Chino/ex-Kyuss), Wes Borland (Black Light Burns/Limp Bizkit), Everlast
(House of Pain/solo artist), Mike Fleischmann (Vision of Disorder), Mitts
(Madball), and Jeff Walker (Carcass).

Prato writes for Rolling Stone, and has penned such popular and critically
acclaimed music book titles as ‘Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock
Music,’ ‘A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon
Hoon and Blind Melon,’ ‘The Eric Carr Story,’ ‘Too High to Die: Meet the Meat
Puppets,’ and ‘MTV Ruled the World: The Early Years of Music Video,’ among
others. He is also a long-time fan of both bands – having interviewed every
single Faith No More member who appeared on record over the years (of which
excerpts from these interviews are included in this book), and having witnessed
countless FNM and Bungle performances over the years.

Available as both a paperback version [$14.99, 210 pages] and a Kindle download
[$6.99, 189 pages], ‘The Faith No More & Mr. Bungle Companion’ helps put it all
into perspective for fans of both bands.

FAITH NO MORE : Live at Kaisaniemi Park, Helsinki FINLAND – June.24 2009

June 25th, 2009

FAITH NO MORE

June 24, 2009

KAISANIEMI PARK, HELSINKI -FINLAND

REPORT BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ AND ARTO LEHTINEN

PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Faith No More called it quits in 1998 after the ALBUM OF THE YEAR had seen the light of day and the tours were completed. Since then it has been speculated about the possible return or comeback for years and even the band members had ruled out the whole reunion thing several times. Singer Mike Patton was always asked in several interviews about a possible return, but he rather focused on his own bands Fantomas, Mr. Bungle, and Tomahawk etc. than teaming up with the old band members. However, some things should remain unchanged and untouched, but it is just amazing to see how some minds can change after all and Faith No More truly returned to the limelight.
