Mike Patton is known for inviting fans to encourage his crazy stage antics. In fact, it's difficult to imagine what the lead singer of Faith No More hasn't done on stage.
There is a laundry list of shocking things Patton has allegedly done on stage; highlights include: drinking urine; inviting fans to spit in his mouth; inviting fans to throw garbage on stage and then eating some of it; exposing himself; eating and regurgitating a shoelace; urinating on security guards--and we can't forget Patton's perverse preoccupation with sharing his fecal matter.
Faith No More fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Sol Invictus, the band's first album in 18 years, to be released on May 19. The band will also release expanded edition reissues of 1989's The Real Thing and 1992's Angel Dust on June 9. (Vinyl lovers will have to wait until August). The reissues will include the original album artwork and a collection of rarities, including some kick-ass covers.
You can catch Faith No More during their two-night stint at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on April 23-24, or at The Observatory in Santa Ana on April 25. Tour dates from the band's full 2015 world tour can be seen here.
Here are some eloquent quotations from the FNM's bold frontman. We're hoping the eccentric Patton has mellowed with age. Quotation above via abc.net.au.
