Faith No More returned to the Bay Area for the first of two sold out shows at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco. A simple floral spread was set up across the lip of the stage while a gimp in full bondage attire wandered onto the stage signaling the start of the show. The amps and monitors were draped in an all white as the band – keyboardist Roddy Bottum, guitarist Jon Hudson, drummer Mike Bordin, bassist billy Gould and singer Mike Patton – took the stage also dressed in all white.

Enigmatic frontman Mike Patton sported a red bandanna, which covered his face like he was about to rob a stagecoach, as he and keyboardist/vocalis Roddy Bottum belted out opener Motherfucker, the first single from Sol Invictus (latin for Unconquered Sun), their first album of new material since 1997’s Album of the Year, set for release on May 19, 2015.   The album was produced by bassist Bill Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland rehearsal space and released on their own imprint, Reclamation Recordings. You can stream the entire album via NPR prior to release and check out the band performing on “The Tonight Show”, both on May 13th.

Faith No More ripped through a 19 song set expertly mixing in five new tracks From the Dead, Matador, Motherfucker, Sunny Side Up, and Superhero with fan favorites and a few deep cuts.  The crowd was electric and sang loud & proud with standouts Caffeine, Evidence, Last Cup of Sorrow, Cuckoo for Caca, and Ashes to Ashes which is simply amazing live.

Live Nation and Yahoo! have teamed up with Faith No More to live-stream their May 8 concert from The Fillmore in Detroit, Michigan.  Fans can tune in at 9:15 p.m. ET, for links and more info go to to http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/faith-no-mores-detroit-concert-to-be-streamed-on-yahoo
