Hopefully the new album really is good. The best thing is that they are going to do more gigs though. Already have got my concert ticket!
I love seeing you Faith No More and Patton fans on GAF. Warms the heart. I got tickets to their April show in Seattle. HYPE
I updated the OP with album art, track list and the singles so far.
Faith No More Sol Invictus: the previews are in and theyre great
Some choice quotes:
Fourth listen to the new Faith No More album. It's breathtakingly brilliant. How high's your expectation? Really? It's better than that.
So the new @FaithNoMore record is absolutely fucking brilliant!
Also, struggling to review the Faith No More record. The best I've got so far is, 'remember how you felt when you first watched Star Wars'
@Beez_says Great isn't it. Album of the year and it's only February. What a time to be alive
So weird to see this thread pop up. I've had "Falling to Pieces" playing in my head all night for I don't know what reason. Excited to hear some new FNM.
Sounds like it's going to be awesome and the two singles in the OP support this theory.
I found out shitty news today, that my vacation has to get moved back. I was looking at being a month shy of seeing FNM in Atlanta but now I have a chance, either by allowing my vacation to get moved or by just quitting and returning to the country for good. If I move my vacay, I'll still have to stretch it to about 8 weeks long, which is longer than I would like to take, but for a chance to hear The Real Thing and The Cowboy Song live, taking two months off would be worth it (setting myself up for disappointment though... Like they are gonna play ever of those songs).
Oh, I wouldn't be quitting based on FNM (though they are a pretty good reason to), I would be quitting because of my vacation being moved. I told my daughter that I would come home and see her this month when I left the country last time and circumstances kept me here. So I told her I would be sure to be home in May and started buying tickets for various activities for my wife, daughter, and I to go do. Having my vacation pushed back isn't something I want to let happen and I have already been up here working for almost three years; I'm gonna need to quit sometime soon anyway and make my way back home. It might just end up being sooner rather than later.If you have the funds to extend your vacation, and can get a ticket, do it! I wouldn't base a decision to quit a job/emigrate to a new country on a single Faith No More show though. Also, know that they haven't played either song on the tour thus far and probably won't.

I can understand The Cowboy Song not getting played since it wasn't a big song but I have been a little surprised to have not spied The Real Thing on any of the setlists so far. It was the name of one of their albums, a decently-sized hit off of the album too. I have seen footage of them playing the song numerous times since that reunion show a couple years back. And I can see a couple songs on the setlists so far that would definitely not be missed if they were dropped in favor of Real Thing. It is one that needs to be played (but probably won't).
I didn't know if I should talk more tour stuff in here or the OT but this one had a lot of tour posts and the other doesn't so I guess I'll stick with this thread?
I'm now torn between going to see them in Atlanta or in Raleigh. Raleigh is a three hour drive, where as Atlanta is 4. That right there makes Raleigh seem like a better option. I'm really trying hard to not say "Fuck it" and go to both though. I don't know that I want to drive 8 hours that Thursday and 6 the next day on Friday but after looking up recent encores for the current tour's setlist, I think I may have to. One recent show saw them play From Out of Nowhere and they played As the Worm Turns on another; both of those would be cool to hear live. But then again, some of the shows saw them not play Midlife Crisis and they played I Started a Joke during the encore. So I feel like I have to go to both because I don't want to risk going to only one and hearing I Started a Joke in place of something god-tier like maybe The Real Thing or Stripsearch.
