Faith No More Return With Smashing Pumpkins


Mike Patton has announced that Faith No More will return in September at the Riot Fest in Chicago on September 17-19, 2021 with Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails.

Patton wrote on Facebook, “Looks like I’m going to have a riot in Chicago this September. MB & FNM getting back to work. (and DEVO!!!!!!)”

Kevin Bunten commented, “In the unlikely event that Mr. Mike Patton sees this you changed my world and i thank you for it. “A small victory” is the finest song ever (and i’ve listened to a lot of music).”

Christina Bennett said, “Cant wait to see Devo qnd Circle Jerks at punk rock bowling in Vegas in end of September! This looks like killer lineup for Chicago. Always wanted to see you perform Patton!!!!!”

D’Avid Murphy added, “Remember when the separation between Faith No More and Mr Bungle was so important, they wore disguises and used fake names to stop people finding out. But now it’s like “two gigs in one day? Great, we’ll save a fortune on petrol money!””

Lisa Hurt wrote, “Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!! You don’t even know how much influence you guys have had on me. I mean of course you don’t, you’ve never met me but between Bungle and FNM that music shaped my life and my own music as well. Can’t wait for this!’
