Check out 'Motherfucker' now...
Faith No More

Cult rock oddballs, Faith No More's eccentric, often inspiring career seemed to peter out after their 1998 breakup.

Since then, the band have reformed for a handful of shows, with bassist Bill Gould seeming to confirm earlier this year that the American group intended to record new material.

Well, he certainly wasn't lying. Faith No More posted a brand new song a few seconds ago, with the jerky funk-rock of 'Motherfucker' sitting neatly within the band's legacy.

Perhaps lacking the strangeness which made Faith such a vital force, it's nonetheless an impressive return from a band whose lustre has yet to fade.

Roddy Bottum told Rolling Stone:

"It feels apt that the first track we're releasing is 'Motherfucker,' a song about accountability. Basically we've created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we're releasing it on our own label. It's a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage... y'know, stuff like that."
