Faith No More, reactivated in 2009 but silent on the prospect of new recordings, has revealed that they are currently recording their first studio album since 1997's Album of the Year. A limited-edition 7" of the track "Motherfucker" will be released digitally on December 9th, while the new album is slated for an April 2015 release. The record is being produced by bassist Bill Gould, recorded in the band's Oakland, CA rehearsal space and released via their own imprint, Reclamation Records (which will be distributed by frontman Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings). Asked what the new material sounds like, Gould explained to RollingStone.com: "What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we're doing reflects where we've gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch. And I think there's parts that are very powerful and there's parts that have a lot of "space." Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it's always going to sound like us. It's just what we do, that makes us feel good. Hopefully it doesn't sound like a bunch of 50-year-old men... which we are!"
