According to The Pulse Of Radio, FAITH NO MORE‘s two best-selling albums, 1989’s “The Real Thing” and 1992’s “Angel Dust”, are being reissued in new editions featuring plenty of bonus rarities. The reissues will be available as either double-CD or heavyweight double-vinyl sets with the CDs available on June 9, one month after the band releases its first set of new music in 18 years, “Sol Invictus”, on May 19.
Neither disc will contain any previously unreleased tracks, but both will collect hard-to-find rarities in the form of live cuts, remixes and other B-sides and bonus tracks.
The bonus disc for “The Real Thing” contains remixes of three of FAITH NO MORE‘s biggest hits — “Epic”, “Falling To Pieces” and “From Out Of Nowhere” — non-album cuts like“The Grade”, “Cowboy Song” and “Sweet Emotion”, plus live cuts like a cover of BLACK SABBATH‘s “War Pigs”.
“Angel Dust” also features live tracks, remixes and covers of THE COMMODORES‘ “Easy”and THE DEAD KENNEDYS‘ “Let’s Lynch the Landlord”.
A vinyl release for both albums is planned for August, though an exact release date has yet to be announced.
FAITH NO MORE is currently on its first full North American tour since 2010 and plays the third of three Los Angeles shows on Friday night (April 24).
