Mike Patton Album News
2010-02-24 by Hunter Ramirez | 64 Comments

In an interview with The Escapist magazine, Mike Patton revealed that his new project, Mondo Cane, is aiming for a release date in early May.

The project involves Patton covering a range of '50s and '60s Italian pop songs. The busy Patton also revealed that he is working on new records with his Lovage and Tomahawk side-projects, as well as "doing narration for a cool indie film and starting to do the musical score for a cool indie film."

In Faith No More news, following 2 sold out shows in San Francisco, and their intention to perform at Coachella this summer, bassist Billy Gould confirmed on Twitter that the group is now "actively pursuing American tour dates."

New Tomahawk album? That's a pleasant surprise, i thought they were done.


'Mike Patton has even let loose that he is working on a new project dubbed "Lovage"'

just saw this... Lovage is not a new project, they've already released an album. Pretty bad journalism
if that magazine didn't know this

^The Mondo Cane album has been in the works for a LONG time, the album keeps getting pushed back. Look for the live performances on youtube, they're cool.

Corrected it.
I found the Lovage thing odd as well

and yes, I have very wet pants right now.

The only day this day could get better was an announcement for a new Faith No More album.

Try the Perfect Place Soundtrack or Angel Dust.

That song is called 'Epic' by the way, and it's nothing like the stuff on Angel Dust or the rest of
Faith's work.

"I'm still waiting for a new FNM or Bungle album"

A Mr Bungle reunion is EXTREMELY unlikely, so may as forget about that. As for FNM, i read a Patton interview where he pretty much said that they're afraid of tarnishing the bands legacy by releasing sub-standard new material. I kind of wish they'd do an EP or something though, you know it'd be awesome.



Inveigh

yeah, Bungle's just wishful thinking, but I do think a new FNM EP would be awesome. I'd assume it would be more in the style of Angel Dust or KFAD rather than TRT or AotY.

Nope, and Jim Martin's never coming close to Mike Patton again. Nor is Spruance if I'm not mistaken.

wow, if you read further down in that Spruance interview he talks about what changed with FNM once Martin left the band (resulting in the different sounds found on the last two records). It really explains everything I wondered about after going from Angel Dust to KFAD... and why I disliked that album for so long.

I also agree with what he said about Martin and that he fit so well in the band. He was content in the back ground playing palm-muted power chords when the keys/bass/drums wanted to do their groovey thing -- which was the strongest element of their sound on Introduce Yourself, The Real Thing and Angel Dust. That's the element that's largely missing on the last two albums -- especially King For A Day.

A new Bungle album without Spruance WOULD be retarded, and i think most people would agree with that sentiment.

Patton definitely wasn't the mastermind either. Know what you're talking about before you start spewing bullshit.

I like Patton but i don't automatically assume that he's the creative genius behind each band he's
involved in (as his fanboys always claim) , because that just isn't true.

Tomahawk, for example. That's Duane Dennisons band.

The ego-driven quarrel between Spruance and Patton make a veritable reunion impossible, and I agree that Mr. Bungle would not be the same without Spruance. However, other members like McKinnon and Dunn -- the latter who plays with both Patton and Spruance in Fantômas and SC3 respectively -- are stoical to such feud. So, why cannot those who feel comfortable with a reunion join forces once again? FNM did it.


@GlueyPorch2
I know what I am talking about. I have been listening to Mr. Bungle for a long time, some of which, particularly the mid and late 90's, you might have spent jumping on your couch while watching Korn videos, or perhaps going to Ozzfest.

"So, why cannot those who feel comfortable with a reunion join forces once again?"

Because, and i'll repeat it again, as you're a little slow on the uptake, Spruance was an integral part of the band and a Bungle reunion without him would be fucking pointless.

"FNM did it"

FNM's last two albums were made without Jim Martin so it isn't really a fair comparison. Besides, he wasn't as important to FNM as Spruance was to Mr Bungle.

"I know what I am talking about"

Not really, but you made a good effort and i'm proud of you for that.

I think a Mr.Bungle album would be pointless, California topped all their work and they went out on a pretty high note. Bringing them back would only lead to disappointment. Faith No More is a different story because Album of the Year, was their worst work, and Patton (and everyone else) needed time to get some creative juices flowing. I think that if they were to release any new material it would easily top Album of the Year, but I don't think it'd top Angel Dust, because that's like Converge trying to top Jane Doe, they can come close, they can even produce a damn near amazing flawless album, but it still wouldn't beat Jane Doe.

Just saying.
