Faith No More

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24 -- Mike Patton (Fantômas, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom and the forthcoming Mondo Cane amongst others) has just completed his first major motion film score for the film "Crank 2: High Voltage" (Apr. 17 release).

While Patton has often dabbled in film whether it was lending his voice to the creatures in "I Am Legend", his score for the indie film noir short "A Perfect Place" or Fantômas' film scoring interpretation via The Director's Cut, this marks his first proper film score.

Created during the latter half of 2008, Patton holed up in a Los Angeles studio and eliminated all other projects during the recording, a point worth noting as he is well known for being one of modern music's most prolific artists.

Patton has also provided vocals to several videogames including "Bionic Commando," "Portal," "Left 4 Dead," and "The Darkness." He also lent his voice to Adult Swim's Metalocalypse (character name: Rikki Kix). Patton just wrapped up a trek across Australia with Fantômas as part of the Big Day Out festival. His upcoming schedule includes a performance with labelmates Zu (Mar. 19 @ Great American Music Hall in San Francisco), the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Apr. 17 with Rahzel (ex-Roots beatboxer) and the highly anticipated reunion tour with Faith No More in Europe this summer.

!!!
To quote the Daily Swarm, "Seems the PR company feels scoring the latest Jason Statham sequel is bigger news than one of the most inventive heavy bands of the 80s and 90s reuniting after 11 years."

--

In related news, the pre-Patton frontman of Faith No More, Chuck Mosley, "is currently recording a new album at Ante Up Audio recording studios in Cleveland, Ohio. Multi-platinum producer/engineer Michael Seifert (Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, Dave Matthews, Bone Thugs 'n Harmony) is currently working on the new release with Chuck. The album is sure to please fans new and old, with a mix of hard rock and acoustic numbers." (thx Klaus)

"do they not realize how many FNM fans there are here in the US? we're the ones who made them so big, goddamnit!"

Are you kidding? After "The Real Thing", acceptance of their music in the US dwindled, probably because it didn't have the radio-friendly mentality of "Real Thing." Meanwhile, Patton is treated like a GOD overseas.

As much as I love them and wish they would come here to the States, I wouldn't blame them if they didn't.

Posted by CheeseCoat McTafferson | March 4, 2009 8:00 PM

I just peed myself a little when I read this. They better play in the states.

the peppers won here in the usa, the peppers fucking suck. faith no more reunion would be fucking awesome, patton is the best vocal EVER.

I'm getting awfully close to 40 and I can say I'm a big fan and have been since I first heard the Chuck Mosley fronted pre-Patton FNM but I've got to say I'd much rather not see a reunion.

I can, and often do, enjoy listening to FNM. It was great and now its done. Its not that I don't want to see them again, its just that I'd much rather hear the new Mondo Cane album. I'd much rather read about some new collaboration with John Zorn that catches me completely by surprise the way Moonchild or Hemophiliac did.

No reason to complain though if it is a couple quick shows that net Mike Patton funds for years of future experimentation.

I have eaten Lycium Barbarum recently. Without a doubt, what brooklynvegan pointed out about the fruit is accurate. I've truly felt much healthier and even reduced weight.
