The San Francisco alt-metal legends will be crossing the pond for the first time in five years, taking on Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London in the UK, as well as Punchestown in Ireland.
“Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe ASAP,” the band say in a typically Faith No More statement.

This time last year, keyboardist Roddy Bottum revealed he’d been recording fresh Faith No More material with the other members, explaining: “I will periodically go to San Francisco and make music with those guys. What we do is a really special, unique thing that we kind of share – especially like me and Mike Bordin and Billy. We were super young – we were, like, 18, 19 years old and when we started making music, so we kind of get in the room and we have a language that speaks really loud and really clear, at least to the three of us. I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable, a really sort of family sense.
“I think we all acknowledge that it’s not something that any of us wanna turn our backs on, and it’s kind of fun to do,” he also said. “So in the hopes of pushing things forward and making new music, we continue to do that, to like get together and make new sounds and just have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future.”
Stay tuned to see if FNM add more new dates to their 2020 calendar – or if they’ll be bringing new music with them on the road…
