Faith No More is an American alternative metal band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1981 by bassist Billy Gould, keyboardist Roddy Bottum and drummer Mike Bordin.[ The band is best known for combining elements of heavy metal, funk, progressive rock, hip hop, hardcore punk, thrash metal, and jazz.
Faith No More underwent several line-up changes before releasing their first album, We Care a Lot, in 1985. Membership remained stable until vocalist Chuck Mosley was replaced by Mike Patton in 1988. In 1989, the band released their highly successful album, The Real Thing, which featured their breakthrough hit single "Epic". The band's next album, 1992's Angel Dust, was also highly successful and spawned the hit "Midlife Crisis", which became their sole #1 hit on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in their career. Faith No More declined in popularity after longtime guitarist Jim Martin left the group in 1994 and was replaced by Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance. After the release of their next album, 1995's King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime, Spruance was replaced briefly by Dean Menta, who would eventually be replaced by their current guitarist Jon Hudson. After releasing one more album, Album of the Year, in 1997, Faith No More broke up in April 1998.
On February 24, 2009, Faith No More announced that they would be reforming for a European tour with the same lineup before their break up. In June 2009, they performed together for the first time in eleven years at the Brixton Academy in London, England as part of a 2009 reunion tour. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faith_No_More
Knowing of the other bands that Mike Patton has been (and IS) in, and having a chance to see a few shows, I can DEFINITELY say that it's worth seeing.
