Listen to Faith No More Radio on iHeartRadio

Faith No More has officially announced plans to return with their first new album in 18 years. 

Bassist Bill Gould tells Rolling Stone the as-yet-untitled record will be out in April of next year, and he says it will be a totally independent product.  Gould is producing the album himself, the band is recording it in their own Oakland rehearsal space, and they plan to release it on their new imprint, Reclamation Records. 

Gould says it feels like they "own the future" more than ever.  And he adds that part of that future will include a full U.S. tour behind the new album, although they haven't booked any specific dates just yet. 

Faith No More plans to release the first single from the upcoming album on November 28th as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event.  The group debuted the track - titled "Mother [[expletive]]" - earlier this summer at a concert in London's Hyde Park.
