Faith No More will play to considerably more than the 3,000 or so fans attending tonight's (May 8) performance at the Fillmore Detroit.
The group will be streaming the show via Yahoo Live!, playing not only favorites such as "Epic" but previewing material from Sol Invictus, its first new album since 1997, which comes out May 19. Faith No More reunited in 2009 following an 11-year spilt, and bassist Billy Gould tells us that the big difference between now and then is that "now we have a bit more enthusiasm when it comes to working together...We are doing our best to make the most out of the present."
Faith No More wraps up its North American tour on May 15 in Philadelphia. The group begins a European run that includes several festival appearances on May 29 in Germany, then returns for more North American shows on July 26 in Austin, Texas.
