Faith No More Release Rare 1986 Performance, Announce Two More Reissues

faithnomore-kingforadayA few weeks back Faith No More announced the reissue of their debut LP, We Care A Lot. Now the group is giving us a little taste of what that reissue will include. In advance of the release, Faith No More shared new, rare footage (audio and video by Chris Husband) of the band performing ‘The Jungle’ live from 1986 at The i-Beam in San Francisco.

“This was an album that started as a demo, before any label had any interest in us,” explained Faith No More bass player Bill Gould. “There were a couple of reasons we decided to release this now: first of all, it’s been 20 years since it has been commercially available. Secondly, when cleaning out my basement, I discovered the original master reels, and we all thought that resurrecting this from the original tapes would be a great way to reintroduce We Care A Lot into the world. Lastly, this has been a band effort; we are releasing this in the same way as we recorded it, deciding everything amongst ourselves and getting our hands deep into the nuts and bolts… just like we used to.”
