Faith No More Return With 2020 Tour Dates
After a weekend of counting down with a "mountainous" social media tease, Faith No More revealed their first 2020 tour dates on Tuesday (Nov. 26).
The band had utilized their eight-pointed star logo embossed over a snow-capped mountain to tease fans of the announcement to come over the weekend. As it turns out, the group announced a return to the road, starting with three European tour dates at Ireland's Sunstroke Festival, France's Hellfest and Norway's Tons of Rock.
The shows will mark their first European performances in five years. “Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap,” said the band, collectively. See the dates listed below.
It is not known as of yet if more shows will follow, but the trio of festival dates is a solid sign that there will be more activity from the group in 2020.
Faith No More released six albums between 1985 and 1997, then split up for a decade plus before reuniting to tour in 2009. Eventually, the five-piece outfit decided to hit the studio and yielded 2015's critically hailed album Sol Invictus. In 2017, they took another extended break, but discussion of the potential for new music started up again in late 2018.
