Faith No More Reissue Debut Album ‘We Care A Lot’ this August


Faith No More will release a deluxe edition of their long-out-of-print debut We Care A Lot this August.

Originally released in 1985 on Mordam Records, the ten-song album has been remastered by Maor Appelbaum, and will be reissued with nine bonus tracks including demo versions, taken from the original 8-track tapes, along with liner notes from keyboard player Roddy Bottum and behind-the-scenes photos.

“This was an album that started as a demo, before any label had any interest in us,” comments bassist player Bill Gould. “There were a couple of reasons we decided to release this now: 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.”


Former frontman Chuck Mosley commented: “With We Care A Lot, I always felt like I was part of something new and different than anything else out there at the time. It made me feel privileged to be a part of it. The other guys were so cool, and there was so much camaraderie. And that came across in the music; Bordin’s drums battling it out with Billy’s bass in antagonistic harmony, Roddy’s melodic atmosphere, swallowed up by Jim’s crunchy metal riffs. I found my place somewhere between them all, and when the album was finished, it didn’t sound like anything else.”

We Care A Lot (Deluxe Band Edition) hits the stores August 19th via Bill Gould’s Koolarrow Records, and is available now for pre-order on CD, digital and vinyl.
