As a special Black Friday surprise, Amoeba San Francisco welcomed Faith No More for a live performance. Their new 7" single, "Motherfucker," was released that day just for Record Store Day Black Friday and supplies flew off the shelves! "Motherfucker" is the first single from their upcoming album to be released in 2015. It will be their first studio recording since 1997.
Their secret 6pm show was announced via the internet at 2pm that day, which may seems like short notice but the store welcomed over 800 devoted fans between the announcement and show time.
Mike Patton, Bill Gould, Roddy Bottum, Mike Bordin, and Jon Hudson were joined on stage by a mysterious leather-clad figure known only as The Gimp. Fans were familiar with The Gimp as he had been taunting them for days with hilarious hint-dropping videos.
Faith No More played a face-melting set of five songs: "Motherfucker, "As The Worms Turns," "Spirit," "Ashes To Ashes," and "Superhero." If you don't know that last song, that's because it's from their upcoming album. Watch for it in 2015.
