Faith No More News

Here is the official statement:
FAITH NO MORE
Faith No More has always stood out as some sort of unique beast; part dog, part cat--its music almost as schizophrenic as the personalities of its members. When it all worked, it worked really well, even if the chemistry was always volatile. Throughout our 17years of existence, the mental and physical energy required to sustain this creature was considerable and relentless. Though amicable enough, when we finally split, we all followed paths seemingly destined to opposite ends of the universe.
Yet during the entire 10 years that have passed since our decision to break up we've experienced constant rumors and requests from fans and promoters alike. Nevertheless, for whatever reason, none of us kept in regular touch, much less to discuss any possibilities of getting together.
What's changed is that this year, for the first time, we've all decided to sit down together and talk about it. And what we've discovered is that time has afforded us enough distance to look back on our years together through a clearer lens and made us realize that through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right.
Meanwhile we find ourselves at a moment in time with zero label obligations, still young and strong enough to deliver a kickass set, with enthusiasm to not only revisit our past but possibly add something to the present. And so with this we've decided to hold our collective breaths and jump off this cliff....
BACK, GOD FORBID, INTO THE MONKEY CAGE!!!
We can only hope that the experience of playing together again will yield results erratic and unpredictable enough to live up to the legacy of FNM.
Who know where this will end or what it will bring up...only the future knows. But we are about to find out!
FAITH NO MORE are:
Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Bill Gould, Jon Hudson and Mike Patton

This time, it's official, Faith No More has broken up.
From the Official Press-Release:
"After 15 long and fruitful years, Faith No More have decided to put an end to
speculation regarding their imminent break up... by breaking up. The decision among
the members is mutual, and there will be no pointing of fingers, no naming of names,
other than stating, for the record, that "Puffy started it". Furthermore, the split
will now enable each member to pursue his individual project(s) unhindered. Lastly,
and most importantly, the band would like to thank all of those fans and associates
that have stuck with and supported the band throughout its history."
Comment from Bill Gould (bassist and one of the founding members of FNM):
I personally would like to thank all of you folks who've done such a fantastic
job in keeping us alive, and growing with us through our changes, but especially in
helping make our band available to people through the Internet, because I'm
absolutely convinced that without all of your help we would have been ignored
(especially in the States).
