Interviews STARE

Mike Patton on the future of FAITH NO MORE

I Heart Guitar recently talked to Mike Patton, who was asked what the future holds for FAITH NO MORE.

He replied:

Right now, we have no plans whatsoever — live, recording or anything. We’ve done what we set out to do with the reunion, and it’s all great, but it’s just, ‘Let’s see what happens next.’ And I think you need to take a pause to actually reflect on something like that, because otherwise we could just keep playing, and we’re very conscious of overdoing it, y’know, milking material that’s so old. You can only do that for so long, and I feel that we’ve done pretty well. The whole band’s naturally came to this conclusion, so now we’re just sitting tight.

In the same interview, Mike explained why a FNM reunion hadn’t happened prior to 2009, when it was announced that they would be gearing up to play live again:

We wanted it to feel fresh and still somehow vital. It wasn’t an money grab. It’s funny to say, but we all kind of reconnected, and after quite a long time we all kinda looked at each other and were like, ‘Man, we actually spent half of our lives together.’ It’s interesting to see it through that set of glasses as opposed to the ones you wore back then. I suppose, at least personally speaking, I’ve grown up a lot since then, and I think I approach the music differently, and I felt better about the music than I did then.
