Mike Patton was recently interviewed by News.com.au. While the conversation largely centered around his work with Mondo Cane, the topic of potential new Faith No More material did come up.
On that Patton stated:
“We’re pretty happy with just touring. There was talk, ‘Should we write new stuff?’ and we all looked at each other and said ‘Nahhh, fuck it.’ We did work up one new little thing and that was really energizing.”
The “new little thing” referenced above is thought to be the song commonly referred to as “Matador“—which they performed at numerous live shows in the past few months.
