Faith No More to re-release two classic albums

Faith No More will re-release their two classic albums, ‘The Real Thing’ and ‘Angel Dust’ in vinyl deluxe versions.

Each album will be offered as a two-disc CD set that includes the original release accompanied by a second disc filled with rarities related to the album. Both will be available on 12 June 2015.

In addition to the CD set there will also be a double LP, 180gm heavyweight black vinyl format of each album, featuring the original album and a selection of the rarities related to each. The release date of the vinyl formats is planned for August.

The bonus disc puts a different spin on many of the album tracks with remixed versions of ‘Epic’ and ‘Falling To Pieces’, as well as live performances of ‘Surprise You’re Dead’, ‘Underwater Love’ and the Black Sabbath classic ‘War Pigs’. The bonus disc also includes the b-sides ‘Cowboy Song’ and ‘The Grade’.

Among the nine tracks featured on the bonus disc is a mix of ‘Midlife Crisis’ by the band’s longtime producer Matt Wallace, a trio of live recordings from a concert in Munich, Germany, as well as covers of the Dead Kennedys’ ‘Let’s Lynch The Landlord’ and the band’s unforgettable take on the Commodores’ ‘Easy’.

‘The Real Thing’ was released in 1989 and was the third studio album for the band. It was the first release to feature their new vocalist, Mike Patton.

‘Angel Dust’ was originally released in 1992 and followed ‘The Real Thing’. It was the band’s final studio album with guitarist Jim Martin.
