Faith No More Preview New Album With New Single 'Motherfucker'

    Faith No More's future was in doubt for a while. Despite a number of intermittent reunions over the last three years they never seemed as if they were going to honestly reform, sit down and hammer out an album. They dropped hints that they were back together here and there, particularly at a few shows over the last year, but until today there was nothing definite. After an interview with Rolling Stone, in which bassist Bill Gould told them he'd be producing the next Faith No More album and that the album will be out around April, those doubts can be put to rest. The obligatory preview track, "Motherfucker," also did well to put to rest any doubts that the band might not still possess some of the ole' magic.

    It doesn't get off to a great start, "Motherfucker," with a name that smacks of obnoxious machismo and opening lines that suggest this song will be little more than a scree about the evils of modern excess and a portentous piano that smacks of self-important doomsaying, but give it a second. By the time the guitar and drums kick and Mike Patton begins to mumble about "getting the motherfucker" on the phone the song reveals it's got a sense of humor that leavens out the self-serious condemnation. It makes you more apt to listen to the words, then, and notice that there's a lot of fun word-play going on here and that the song's anything but a slog. It is, in fact, a hoot.
