Fans of Faith No More spent years waiting for their comeback, and their prayers have finally been answered. The alternative metal band announced its first series of live shows in Europe after half a decade.

Members of Faith No More first teased their fans by posting a cryptic black and white photo on social media, but eventually announced their return by writing “Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our a**es back to Europe.”

At this point, they only announced appearances at Sunstroke Festival in Ireland, Hellfest in France, Tons of Rock in Norway and Mad Cool Festival in Spain, but we’re pretty sure that list will get much longer in the next few weeks since their fans in Europe can’t wait to hear them live.

We’re yet to see if this tour will serve as the build-up for a new album release. They haven’t given us any new music since 2015 when their last album Sol Invictus came out.
