Faith No More's Mike Patton: 'I Don't Care Who Listens' to Our New Album

Faith No More's Mike Patton: 'I Don't Care Who Listens' to Our New Album | tbeest | Scoop.it
It has been two decades since Faith No More -- whose innovative mix of heavy rock with rap, electronica, jazz and more made it one of the most influential and out-there bands of the late-’80s/early-’90s alt-rock scene -- issued its last album and subsequently broke up. But since reuniting in 2009 to play sporadic shows, the Bay Area-based act has gathered new steam, leading to Sol Invictus (out May 19 on the band’s own Reclamation Records), a characteristically eccentric addition to its catalog.

Vennart – “Operate” (Stereogum Premiere) - Stereogum

Vennart – “Operate” (Stereogum Premiere) - Stereogum | tbeest | Scoop.it
Soon after the demise of Britpop, the United Kingdom produced a wave of excellent guitar bands that had trouble finding traction in the States; bands that combined elements of post-rock, indie rock, emo, and prog to create dizzying sonic towers of fury and sadness. (Frustratingly although unsurprisingly, the one band operating in this mode that did achieve Stateside success -- England's Muse -- was also the most annoying of them.) I could probably list a dozen such acts off the top of my head -- Idlewild, Aereogramme, We Were Promised Jetpacks -- but at the top of that list would be England's now-defunct Oceansize and Scotland's still-active Biffy Clyro. Mike Vennart did time in both those bands. He was Oceansize's frontman from their formation in 1998 till their split in 2010. After that, he signed on as a touring guitarist for Biffy Clyro, and he contributed some guitar and vocal parts to the band's 2013 album, Opposites. Now, Vennart is set to release his debut solo album, The Demon
