Faith No More Dismiss Comeback Rumours

Eighties rockers FAITH NO MORE have dismissed rumours they are planning a reunion, 10 years after splitting.
Bandmembers went their separate ways in 1998, a year after the release of the group's final LP, Album of the Year - which went on to sell 1.5 million copies worldwide.
Since the split, frontman Mike Patton has gone onto achieve success as a solo artist, and released music with a number of groups including Mr Bungle and Tomahawk.
But gossips in the UK recently speculated the Epic hitmakers are planning a 2009 comeback, after music magazine Kerrang! reported that a number of British venues and festivals have been put on hold for a reunion tour in the spring and summer.
However, bass player Billy Gould insists a comeback is unlikely - because he hasn't spoken to his former bandmates in years.
He tells Kerrang!, "If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven't spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn't anything to talk about, and I'm pretty sure that if you were to contact Patton, he would tell you the same thing"

This isn't even a story - this is the same story as Kerrang, just spun in a different way. Billy denied the rumour in the magazine in the same article which started. I dont see anyone else denying it. Ipecac isnt saying s**t. Even though the whole thing is bulls**t: Faith No More havent denied it officially yet.
