FNM reissues don’t come from band..

Faith No More have issued a statement to clarify that they’ve played no part in an upcoming pair of re-releases.

The Real Thing from 1989 and Angel Dust from 1992 are to be launched as deluxe editions in August, including B-sides, remixes and live tracks.

But FNM say: “The latest statements seem to imply that these are band-sponsored releases. In fact, they are Warners/Rhino re-issues, who still own the license to them.

“This is not to say that they are not worth getting. It’s just that they are not coming from us. Hope that makes sense.”

The band release comeback album Sol Invictus on May 18 and play three UK dates the following month:

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
