Faith No More
One of music’s most influential and commanding bands, Californian five-piece Faith No More, will tour Australia in February 2022, marking their first international gig worldwide since 2015.
Faith No More’s pioneering, genre-defining career saw the band morph from cult underground heroes to boundary-pushing global chart-toppers, mixing metal to alt-rock to hip-hop to punk and much, much more. Also performing at all shows is Melbourne band RVG, who’ll return in 2022 with the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2017 debut, A Quality of Mercy.
Lending their support following Australia’s recent bushfire crisis, Faith No More will be donating $1 (plus GST) from each ticket sold across the AU/NZ dates to wildlife rescue and state fire services in affected states.
With their fusion of heavy metal, funk, hip-hop, and progressive rock, Faith No More have earned a substantial cult following.
By the time they recorded their first album in 1985, the band had already had a string of lead vocalists, including Courtney Love; their debut, We Care a Lot, featured Chuck Mosley’s abrasive vocals but was driven by Jim Martin’s metallic guitar.
