As if their hotly anticipated new release Sol Invictus wasn't enough, Faith No More has announced the reissue of their two best-selling records, along with B-sides and live recordings.
The Real Thing (1989) and Angel Dust (1992) will be available as a double-CD on June 9 or as double vinyl set in August. The reissues will include bonus material packed with B-sides and live recordings. See the full bonus track listings below.
Faith No More, which includes Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Bill Gould, Jon Hudson and Mike Patton, are currently on tour and they were excited to hit the road after a lengthy hiatus. They are keeping their operation small with no record label, PR firm or marketing team.
They had this to say on their website:
"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!!!"
