Adrian Harte, the blogger whose website, Faith No More 2.0 (www.newfaithnomore.com), has become the main source for everything Faith No More related, will release the book, ‘Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More’ on Sept. 12 via Jawbone Press.
“When I first heard about this Faith No More biography, I didn’t know what to think,” said Bill Gould Faith No More’s co-founder and bass player. “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 release by Faith No More themselves, the 376-page book 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.
‘Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More’ tells how the group formed, rose to fame, and fell apart, and how Faith No More helped redefine rock, metal and alternative music. The book chronicles the creative and personal tensions that defined and energized 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.
