FAITH NO MORE might be my favorite band of all-time, but from SOL INVICTUS, their first album in 18 years, it has been a tad bit disappointing that all of the "music videos" released thus far have all been culled from live performances that can mostly be found in their entirety on YouTube already. Today that's changed, with the release of "Sunny Side Up," a concept video by filmmaker JOE LYNCH. Now, the thing is... the band isn't actually in it, and the last time they did a video like that ("I Started A Joke"), they split. That better not happen this time around...

While their first record in 18 years, SOL INVICTUS, was released back in May, FAITH NO MORE have maintained a constant touring schedule and have not yet released a music video that's been filmed as "a music video." Instead, the band has been releasing performance footage, most recently "Superhero" earlier this month, and now FNM is back with "Sunny Side Up," taken from the same May 8th concert at Detroit's Fillmore Auditorium, video of which can be seen below. Additionally, FAITH NO MORE will be the musical guest on the September 3 installment of JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! on ABC...

Last night, FAITH NO MORE made their first U.S. television appearance in nearly two decades, making their return with a triumphant performance of "Superhero" on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON. It was an appropriate place to make a National return, with FNM making previous NBC appearances on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (1990, "Epic" and "From Out of Nowhere"), THE TONIGHT SHOW with JAY LENO (1993, "Midlife Crisis" and "Easy"), and  LATE NIGHT with CONAN O'BRIEN (1995, "Ricochet"), on which they even did a skit. Check out last night's appearance in the clips below, and look for FAITH NO MORE's SOL INVICTUS, in-stores next week!

This past Thursday night, I felt as if I were 15 again. My wife and I attended the sold-out FAITH NO MORE concert at Chicago's Concord Music Hall, where Riot Fest presented the return of FAITH NO MORE to the Windy City. For those of you that read this site regularly, you may already know that if not for my first-ever interview with FNM back in 1992 during the ANGEL DUST Tour, it's entirely possible that my life could've taken an entirely different path. Now, 18 years after their previous release, ALBUM OF THE YEAR, the band is back with SOL INVICTUS, their first effort since re-forming in 2009. Today, NPR is streaming the album in-full, one week ahead of it's May 19 release here in the United States. Check it out via the embedded player below...

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...

If you're a regular reader of this site, then you probably already know that FAITH NO MORE is not only my favorite band of all-time, but essentially the reason why I am who I am today. With their first album since 1997's ALBUM OF THE YEAR confirmed last September, today comes the official title, release date and tracklisting. On May 19, FAITH NO MORE will release SOL INVICTUS via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings. The release will arrive just days after wrapping up their first U.S. Tour in nearly 18 years - a tour I was lucky enough to snag tickets for during a much-frenzied pre-sale window. Check out the SOL INVICTUS tracklisting below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
