Hey, Whatever Happened to that Faith No More Reunion?

I remember being rather excited about the FNM reunion when it was announced in 2009.  There was a flurry of shows (mostly in Europe).  And then…nothing.

According to Mike Patton, “It just sort of petered out.”  From Music-News:

    I get what he's saying, but I think FNM should take the risk. For me, they were always a band that could do no wrong. To this day I still listen on a regular basis. Their reunion shows sounded awesome as well.

    Look at Soundgarden. Their reunion and new album are amazing, I think FNM would do it right.

    My one disappointment is that Jim Martin wasn't involved.

    Ah well, maybe if there's no reunion, Mike Patton can get a new Tomahawk album released!
