Faith No More, motherfucker 79 replies

Critically acclaimed alternative rock legends Faith No More have released the first single off their upcoming 7th studio album, 'Motherfucker'. The album is set for a 2015 release and will be the band's first studio album in 18 years.

Roddy Bottum (keyboards) said this about the track:

"It feels apt that the first track we're releasing is 'Motherfucker,' a song about accountability. Basically we've created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we're releasing it on our own label. It's a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage... y'know, stuff like that".

Dustin Kensrue enters studio 23 replies

Dustin Kensrue has finally found the time to record the follow-up to 2007's Please Come Home. The new album is set to be released in spring 2015 on Staple Records/Vagrant Records.

"Recording right now is for me the end of a long distilling process. I always have bits and pieces of songs that are bouncing around in my head. I usually record them and listen back later, and most of the time I can’t remember why I even bothered to record them in the first place. But then there are the tunes that stick – the ones I find running over and over through my head, demanding to be finished. Begging for a home. The most persistent of these tunes from the past 8 years are what I’m busy recording right now, and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing" - DK
