Official press release:
Adrian Harte, the blogger whose website, Faith No More 2.0, has become the pre-eminent source for all things Faith No More, releases the book, Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More on Sept. 12 via Jawbone Press.
Faith No More co-founder and bass player Bill Gould said:
“When I first heard about this Faith No More biography, I didn’t know what to think. But I have to give credit where it is due. It’s a quality piece. The man has done his research, and it shows. It provided me with more than a few revelations… and I’m in the band.”
While not an official book from Faith No More itself, the 376-page offering features interviews with multiple band members, managers and key figures from the band’s 39-year history and has the full endorsement of the San Francisco-based group.
About Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More:
Small Victories… tells how such a heterogeneous group formed, flourished, and fractured, and how Faith No More helped redefine rock, metal and alternative music. The book chronicles the creative and personal tensions that defined and fueled the band, forensically examines the band’s beginnings in San Francisco’s post-punk wasteland, and charts the group’s ascent to MTV-era stardom. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews, the book combines a fan’s passion with a reporter’s perspicacity.
