All you viral, WOM marketers out there will get a kick outta this. Some of you may remember Faith No More, the alt-metal band popular in the early 90s. Well, apparently they’re back from the dead, according to a recent blog post:
“Meanwhile we find ourselves at a moment in time with zero label obligations, still young and strong enough to deliver a kickass set, with enthusiasm to not only revisit our past but possibly add something to the present. And so with this we’ve decided to hold our collective breaths and jump off this cliff….BACK, GOD FORBID, INTO THE MONKEY CAGE!!!”
But the blog could be the ultimate study in how NOT to blog. That is, don’t wait eleven years to publish your second post. Perhaps if these guys actually had a more robust social media presence all these years, there might be more of a fan base who actually cares that they are back together.
And you thought the fact that they let that fish almost die at the end of their video was bad….
Thanks to WFMU’s Twitter feed for the tip…
UPDATE: I’m loving all these comments, below, even though most of them fail to recognize that this post was not about the quality or viability of Faith No More or its music. I was merely commenting on the lack of regular posts on the FNM.com site.
I do want to acknowledge, that as some have mentioned in the comments, the band does have a Facebook page which appears to be updated regularly, and the band’s bassist Billy Gould has a Twitter account, which looks like it was started earlier this month.
Also — the band does not appear to have an official site, although it looks as though they may use the FNM.com site going forward since Gould links to it on his Twitter bio.
