Mike Patton (Faith No More)

FnmBest known as the singer of the metal/ experimental rock band Faith No More, the American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and actor, Michael Allan “Mike” Patton was born January 27 in 1968. Known for his eclectic influences and experimental projects, Patton has earned critical praise for his diverse vocalization. Patton joined Faith No More in January 1989 and filled the vocal void left by the recently-fired Chuck Mosley, who moved on to the band Cement. Faith No More’s The Real Thing was released later the same year. The album reached the top ten on the charts thanks largely to MTV’s heavy rotation of the “Epic” music video (which featured Patton in a T-shirt promoting his own band Mr. Bungle). They also had success with songs like Midlife Crisis,Falling To Pieces, From Out of Nowhere and Small Victory

Sadly though, The follow up album, Angel Dust, though successful, could not match the commercial success of The Real Thing, & After three more studio albums (Angel Dust, King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime, and Album of the Year) Faith No More officially disbanded in 1998. Patton also runs a record label named Ipecac Recordings, which He co-founded with Greg Werckman and has also sung for bands like Mr. Bungle (which preceded his involvement with FNM), Tomahawk, Fantômas, Lovage, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Peeping Tom, and also has many producer or co-producer credits with artists such as John Zorn, Sepultura, Melvins, Melt-Banana and Kool Keith. Happily In 2014 amid much speculation, Faith No More reunited with Mike Patton as lead singer and released the album Sol Invictus.
