Epic – Faith No More (1990)
This American band had been around almost a decade when they scored this, their breakthrough hit. They released another well-received album in 1992, but they weren’t able to sustain their peak commercial success thereafter. After a couple additional albums, they disbanded in 1998, and band members pursued solo and collaborative projects:
- Front-man Mike Patton, who’d already released a couple solo efforts, went to join metal super-group Fantômas. He also launched a label, Ipecac Recordings, and has contributed his strong voice to films and video games.
- Keyboardist Roddy Bottum went on to form Imperial Teen, an indie pop band, and has scored several films & television shows.
- Bassist Billy Gould went to collaborate with numerous artists & bands before launching his own label, Koolarrow Records.
- Drummer Mike Bordin worked in Ozzy Osbourne’s band, and then temporarily replaced KoЯn’s drummer when he was injured.
Faith No More reunited in 2009 and have toured extensively internationally. While there were rumors they were returning to the studio to record new material, that has not yet happened.
