Quantcast

Like many, I came into loving FAITH NO MORE (my favorite band of all-time) upon the release of 1989's THE REAL THING (I was not quite 13 at the time), not knowing at the time that prior to the addition of vocalist Mike Patton, there was a whole different era in which the band released two albums fronted by the very-different-sounding Chuck Mosley. Those albums, 1987's INTRODUCE YOURSELF and 1985's WE CARE A LOT were like doors into an alternate universe for me, albums that were surprising in their rawness, yet both fantastic, each in their own way. This Friday, WE CARE A LOT gets reissued as a "Deluxe Band Edition" via Bill Gould's Kool Arrow Records (check out special band-direct packages here), and there's listening parties in select cities, along with something unexpected - a pair of just-announced shows with Chuck Mosley fronting FNM again, August 18 at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, followed by August 20 at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. Check out the announcement video below, along with a stream of the remastered "We Care A Lot" that debuted on the Wall Street Journal earlier this week...

It should be no secret to readers of this site or those who know me well that FAITH NO MORE are my favorite band of all-time. If not for them, this site probably wouldn't exist (story here) - their presence felt daily (even my ringtone is "Absolute Zero"). The past few years have been a great time to be a FNM fan. They reactivated in 2009, released a new record in 2015, reissued Deluxe Editions of 1989's THE REAL THING and 1992's ANGEL DUST, and I was able to see them twice here in Chicago last year. Now comes news that following the August 19th "Deluxe Band Edition" of 1985's WE CARE A LOT being issued through Bill Gould's Kool Arrow Records, Rhino will issue Deluxe Editions of 1995's KING FOR A DAY... FOOL FOR A LIFETIME and 1997's ALBUM OF THE YEAR, each remastered and packed with bonus material. Available on September 9 and up for pre-order now, you can see the tracklistings below...
