faithA Potential contender for Rock Album Of The Year and a definite comback of the year winner in Faith No More’s Sol Invictus which was the band’s first album since 1997’s Album Of The Year. The band recently released a brand new music video for the track Separation Anxiety which is the third video and fourth single off the album. The video primarily features footage from 1950’s expressionist horror film Dementia which is considered to be one of the all time weirdest films ever released into theaters at the time. Faith No More Bassist Billy Gould recently talked about what it’s like to create music videos on an independent label (Mike Patton’s Ipecac) versus a major label saying, “When you do it with a major, there’s nobody that you can talk to about accountability as far as… I don’t know… something simple, like, ‘You want us to do a video? Who wants us to do a video?’ ‘Well, the guy down in that office down there.’ I never met him before.”

He goes on to say, “In this kind of situation we have here, we know everybody, we can talk to everybody. And it’s, like, ‘We need this video. We need it for this.’ ‘Okay. Let’s make it happen.’ And we know that the content that comes out of is our content, how we want it, and not some guy in an office who thinks they know who we are who’s giving this in front of all these people and embarrassing us, for example. Which happened a lot, actually. Even though we had a great label back in the day, but it’s an office of people who are not in our band, who [don’t] know us as well as we know ourselves.” The video is very cool and you should definitely check it out below and pick up Sol Invictus if you haven’t already.
