Faith No More Announces North American Tour with Detroit Date, New Song ‘Superhero’ [Audio]

This May, Faith No More will release its first new album in 18 years, since 1997's "Album of the Year".

The next single, "Superhero," will be released as a limited edition 7-inch single on March 17, followed by a digital release on March 31.

The band also announced a 15-show North American spring tour. The tour marks Faith No More's first U.S. shows in four years, though some cities haven’t seen FNM since 1997-1998.

Pro-Shot Video of Alice in Chains Rocking the NFC Championship Game

This past weekend, the Seahawks staged an unbelievable comeback against the Packers, in a game that many Seattle fans thought was over early. Don't they feel stupid for leaving the game early?
