We Care A Lot, the debut album of American rock band Faith No More, will be reissued as a ‘deluxe band edition’ in August.
The original 10-song album from 1985 has been remastered from the original tapes and is expanded to included nine bonus tracks including demos, new mixes and live performances.
Bass player Bill Gould explained that there were a number of reasons for reissuing the record: “First of all, it’s been 20 years since it has been commercially available. Secondly, when cleaning out my basement, I discovered the original master reels, and we all thought that resurrecting this from the original tapes would be a great way to reintroduce We Care A Lot into the world. Lastly, this has been a band effort; we are releasing this in the same way as we recorded it, deciding everything amongst ourselves and getting our hands deep into the nuts and bolts… just like we used to.”
This reissue will feature liner notes from keyboard player Roddy Bottum and behind-the-scenes photos. There will also be a 2LP vinyl version that includes all of the bonus tracks on the CD edition.
We Care A Lot is released on 19 August 2016. Various bundles and an exclusive coloured vinyl version are available via the band’s online store.
