Faith No More  


Faith No More was the kind of band that usually garners a cult following but not commercial success, since their style is often varied, quirky, hard to describe, and off the mainstream. But the band scored a massive hit with "Epic" off The Real Thing, and so the band did indeed enjoy some success, even though their succeeding albums failed to generate the same level of airplay. In retrospect the band's decision to split up in 1999 is not too surprising, since several members had other projects in the works and there was increased reports of creative friction between various members. They reunited in 2009 and spent the next several of years touring, and have been reported on working on a new album for spring 2015.
