Reading & Leeds 28-30 August 2009  

Faith No More

Nu-Metal godfathers Faith No More have returned, 11 years after their break up, to Reading and Leeds Festivals. The five-piece have gone through eleven band members since forming as Faith No More in 1981, fixing on their 1997 line-up for this year's tour. Expect a chorus of chants accompanying rock anthems like Epic as they take to the NME / Radio 1 Stage.

      I'm guessing that was written by a journo who is either younger than the band itself or too old to care.....alot of the paragraph is factually incorrect..i'm not gonna start a genre argument but influential is an understatement. Happy they're back.
