Two Classic Faith No More Albums to Be Re-Released

unnamed(7)

by David Chiu

On the heels of Faith No More’s return with an upcoming new record and U.S. tour, Rhino announced Thursday the reissue of two of the band’s classic classic – The Real Thing (1989) and Angel Dust (1992) – as double-disc collections and deluxe vinyl editions to be released on June 9. In addition to featuring the original albums, each set also features a bonus disc of B-sides and live performances. As fans may know, The Real Thing was the band’s major hit record thanks to the rap-metal hybrid smash of “Epic.” Personally, my favorite FNM album from that period before the band’s breakup is Angel Dust, a hard-hitting album with such great tracks as “Midlife Crisis,” “A Small Victory,” “R.V.” and “Be Aggressive.”

Check out the full track list below, from the record company press release:
