Mike Patton: Faith No More Reunion Has 'Petered Out'
Fans hoping for some more material from the recently reunited Faith No More are set to be disappointed by Mike Patton's recent suggestion that the band might have come to an end. Speaking to Believer magazine, Patton had the following to say when he was asked if the band was "still happening": "It's sort of petered out. We're also maybe a little too conscious for our own good. Meaning there's a lineage of bands that maybe did some nice things and then needed the cash and got back together and basically just sprayed diarrhea over their entire body of work. We're very worried about that. We don't want to overdo it." Patton also stated that the reason it had taken the band so long to reunite in the first place was that they didn't want it to be a nostalgia trip: "We wanted it to feel fresh and still somehow vital... It wasn't an money grab. It's funny to say, but we all kind of reconnected, and after quite a long time we all kinda looked at each other and were like, 'Man, we actually spent half of our lives together.' It's interesting to see it through that set of glasses as opposed to the ones you wore back then. I suppose, at least personally speaking, I've grown up a lot since then, and I think I approach the music differently, and I felt better about the music than I did then." Sad that Faith No More might not be getting back together? Or think that Patton is right to be cautious with the band's legacy? Let us know in the comments.
