Jon Wiederhorn of the MTV Music Blog recently conducted an interview with Faith No More frontman Mike Patton. In addition to plugging his latest musical adventure, "Mondo Cane", an album of '50s and '60s Italian pop songs performed live in Italian with a 65-piece orchestra, Patton talks about his reasons for getting back together with Faith No More, and why there are no plans to create a follow-up to Faith No More's 1997 record "Album Of The Year". The podcast can now be streamed using the audio player here. Patton recently spoke with ArtistDirect.com about reuniting with Faith No More after 12 years and what their music means to him now. Patton said, "To be honest, I never thought that I would ever revisit that stuff again. After some reflection and speaking with the guys, I realized, 'Well, wait a minute. I'm not embarrassed about it (laughs). It's still good music! Is there a way that we can still pull it off and do it justice?' So we rehearsed! When we rehearsed, I realized this is good and I feel great about it." Patton added that the public's interest in seeing the band again after more than a decade was "staggering" to him, explaining, "Basically, there's more interest in us now than when we were an active band, which is really strange, kind of haunting and maybe a bit morbid, but it also inspired us." Faith No More officially reunited last year and played several European shows and festivals. The band played at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 17 in Indio, California.
