Faith No More Share 11 Rarities From ‘The Real Thing’ Deluxe Reissue
Hot on the heels of Faith No More's comeback album Sol Invictus, which hit the streets on May 19, the band is set to reissue its classic 1989 album, The Real Thing, in two deluxe editions, one on double-CD and the other as a double-LP on heavyweight vinyl.
Both editions will include an 11-song bonus disc filled with rare tracks, as well as B-sides, live performances and remixes. Listen to all 11 songs below:
Bassist Billy Gould said of the album around its initial release, "I don't see the point of limiting accessibility out of stubbornness. There's always been this misconception that 'commercial' equals 'stupid.' Just because something is accepted by a lot of people, it doesn't mean there isn't some interesting thought behind it, you know? You can actually do a lot of damage on a mass scale."
You can currently pre-order the deluxe edition of The Real Thing via Amazon. Below, let the nostalgia wash over you as you watch the music video for for the band's smash hit, "Epic":
