What a great way to start the week... FAITH NO MORE have just unleashed the second single from their forthcoming SOL INVICTUS (out May 19 on Reclamation/Ipecac), and they picked the perfect partner to do it with - MARVEL. "Superhero" popped up over on MARVEL.com yesterday, racking up over 107K streams for the song in just 24 hours - a welcome feat for a band that hasn't released an album since 1997. The track debut came alongside Ryan Penagos' interview with FNM Bassist Bill Gould (read it) in which some serious love for Jack Kirby and the Silver Surfer are thrown down.  Check out the track, and keep on reading below...

Now, if you've never read an item about FAITH NO MORE here on THE ROCK FATHER, I always have to drop a little backstory for those who have, and sound like a broken record in the process: If not for FAITH NO MORE, I would not be typing these words right now. Back in 1992, the planets aligned to let a 15-year-old kid interview his favorite band on television, and that kid was me. I probably owe FNM a nickel for each article I post at this point.

The band has also revealed the cover art for SOL INVICTUS, which features an image from Ossian Brown, a member of Coil and Cyclobe, who also published the book HAUNTED AIR in 2010.


Pre-order SOL INVICTUS now via Amazon or iTunes.

SOL INVICTUS track list:
  1. Sol Invictus

I'll be checking out FNM when they play Concord Music Hall in Chicago on May 7. If any of you scored tickets to see the band on their first U.S. Tour since '97 (at face value), consider yourself lucky - they sold out almost instantly.
