Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1981. The band was originally named Faith No Man. Billy Gould, Roddy Bottum and Mike Bordin are the longest remaining members of the band, having been involved with Faith No More since its inception. The band underwent several lineup changes early in their career, along with some major changes later on. The latest version of Faith No More to perform consists of Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Billy Gould, Jon Hudson, and Mike Patton.

After releasing six albums, Faith No More officially announced their breakup on April 20, 1998. They have since reunited, embarking on The Second Coming Tour from 2009-2012.

On September 2, 2014, bassist Bill Gould announced that Faith No More had been working on their seventh studio album Sol Invictus, scheduled for release in 19 May, 2015.

While Faith No More’s first single “Quiet in Heaven/Song of Liberty”, was a “solid post-punk/pre-goth single”, the band is well known for combining elements of heavy metal with funk, hip hop, progressive rock, alternative rock, hardcore punk, polka, easy listening, jazz, samba, bossa nova, hard rock, pop, soul, gospel, and lounge music.

During a Q&A with Billboard magazine, Mike Patton described Sol Invictus as a “post-punk record with tons of atmosphere. It’s like ELO or The Beach Boys going through a gothic laundry cycle.” Members of Faith No More have acknowledged certain bands as an influence early on, including: Killing Joke, PIL, and Theatre of Hate.

On February 10, 2015 the band announced that their new album, Sol Invictus, will be released in May 2015. The second single from the album, “Superhero”, was shared by the band on March 1st 2015.

Bands rising at their prime, such as Metallica, Alice in Chains, Anthrax, and Guns N’ Roses have acknowledged Faith No More as one of their favorite bands. In a 2015 article by Artistdirect, Duff McKagan, Chino Moreno, Serj Tankian, Corey Taylor, Max Cavalera, & Jonathan Davis praised the band for their significance and influence.
