Marty Duda with the music of Faith No More

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 13 May 2015

The band Faith No More releases their first new album in 18 years. With roots that stretch back to the late 1970s, Faith No More made their first musical impression in the mid-80s with lead vocalist Chuck Mosley. At that point the San Francisco-based band was one of the few blending hard rock, funk and hip-hop elements into their music. By the end of the decade Mosley was out and vocalist Mike Patton was in and Faith No More's success kicked in with the hit record Epic. The band continued to excite and confound fans with a myriad of musical styles and a rebellious attitude until they disbanded in 1998. The band reformed a few years ago…they recently performed in Auckland at this year's Westfest. The band's first new studio album since 1997, titled Sol Invictus, is due out this week.
