Mike Patton and company make their triumphant return.

Earlier this year, alt-metal pioneers Faith No More announced their first new album since 1997’s Album of the Year, with a release scheduled for 2015.

They’ve released the first glimpse of the album, an anthem entitled ‘Motherfucker’ that sounds… very much like Faith No More. The single will be released as a 5,000-issue 7″ single on Record Store Black Friday (November 28) and features a remix by industrial legend J.G. Thirlwell on the B-side.

“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability,” writes keyboardist Roddy Bottum. “Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage…y’know, stuff like that.”
