POSTS FOR BREAKFAST #20 - INTERVIEWS

 
As the excitement builds for the North American leg of FAITH NO MORE's 'Sol Invictus' tour and of course the release of the album, more interviews are rolling in.
 

Bill Gould spoke with Chilean newspaper El Mercurio about their upcoming album, Koolarrrow Record's 'Como Asensir' and their possible return to Chile.

“It is absolutely impossible we release an album and do not play in Chile. That should happen later this year.”

Bill has also had a rather unique and honest conversation with Isreali blog Machine Music.

Here Bill explains that the writing of 'Sol Invictus' wasn't as 'painstaking' as the recent interview in Revolver Magazine suggested.

'What really happened was that we all, all of us, when we decided to get back together it was kind of like everybody had to be into it, and if not everybody was into it, it wasn't going to happen. And it was the same with this record. When we were all 100% cool to do it, we did it. They way he put that, it sounded very painstaking and I thought that was weird to read.'

 
'Well, I wouldn't have had the confidence to record that album myself and mix it if I hadn't had the experience of fifteen years of doing that with other bands, for sure I wouldn't have done it. Because, the guys who have done it before were really good, like we had Andy Wallace, we had guys like Roli [Mosimann] and Matt Wallace, who have been recoding bands, successful bands, for years, so that's a very high bar to live up to, so no way could have I done that.'

And finally Sarah Kitteringham at  BeatRoute has interviewed Mike Bordin. A great and enlightening piece with more detailed information on 'Sol Invictus'. Read the full article HERE

The author let's slip:

The result is the 10-track Sol Invictus, which fits strongly within their discography yet will undoubtedly (and perhaps inversely) challenge listeners due to its fluidity: all told, it’s less erratic than previous material. From the crescendo piano laden cheerleader-esque call and response intro in “Superhero,” to the creeping, military-esque rattle in “Cone of Shame” and the Spanish style flamenco music in “Rise Of the Fall,” to the joyous pop preen of album closer “From the Dead,” it’s a thoroughly mature record.

Puffy talks about his long running writing partnership with Bill. 

“It was Bill and I looking at each other’s face when We Care A Lot came out and it was Bill and I looking at each other’s face when “Midlife Crisis” (from Angel Dust) came out, or “Epic” came out. We’ve been in that position over the decades, he and I, just he and I, a lot."
