Faith No More Wanted To Avoid Nostalgia With Reunion (A Top Story)

On Monday Faith No More Wanted To Avoid Nostalgia With Reunion was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Faith No More drummer Mike Bordin says the band were fearful of outstaying their welcome on their comeback tour. FNM reunited in 2009 for a run of festival shows and soon set their sights on recording their first new material since 1997's Album Of The Year.

And Bordin says it was the realization they might be relying too heavily on nostalgia that eventually led to the recording and release of Sol Invictus in May.

He tells TeamRock Radio: "About halfway into the 2.0 shows, we'd done about 30 shows, and it felt really great. We said, 'I can see the end in sight unless we have something new to say.'

"You'd feel a little uncomfortable about dragging nostalgia out. And that was one thing none of us wanted, was nostalgia. We wanted to see if it was viable, how we felt about playing it and where it would lead us, if there was a future. It was kind of all of us saying it."

Bordin adds that bassist Billy Gould sent a demo of the track Matador, and the rest of the band were thrilled about the potential. Read more - here.
