Faith No More have released a video for their track “Separation Anxiety.”
The song is lifted from Sol Invictus, the band’s new album released earlier this year and their first since 1997’s Album Of The Year.
Says FNM bassist Billy Gould: “When we split up, we explored what we could do on our own. During that time, we each developed what was a natural part of ourselves. Now, coming back, we have a wider perspective so we can do things we didn’t even think of back in the day. If we were to decide to do country-western music, it would still sound like a Faith No More album. Together we have a strong collective identity, and when we work together it makes its own animal.”
You can check out the video for “Separation Anxiety” – which features footage from the 1955 film Dementia (also known as Daughter Of Horror) – below:

Faith No More have released their first new song in 17 years.
Lifted from the band’s new album, “Motherfucker” has been premiered on the Rolling Stone website.
In interview with Rolling Stone, bassist Bob Gould reveals that the new album will be produced by Gould himself, and released via the bands own label, Reclamation Records.
Says Faith No More keyboard player Roddy Bottum of the new track: “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.”
Faith No More disbanded in 1998 but are now back together. “Motherfucker” will be released as a 7″ single on Black Friday, the 28th of November. The record, limited to 5,000 copies, will feature a B-side remix of the track.
