Marvel Debuts New Faith No More Single ‘Superhero’

Faith No More Sol Invictus bw promo

Marvel has debuted the next Faith No More single “Superhero,” from their upcoming album, Sol Invictus, due for release May 19, 2015, much to the excitement of fans all over the world.

Listen to the song here below.

“Marvel?” you say, “that’s weird.”

While yes, it is a little strange that one of the biggest comic/movie/video game/tv sites is debuting a song that is not a track for one of their movies, this might make it a little easier to understand: the title of the song is “Superhero,” the interviewer at Marvel is a huge FNM fan, and bassist Bill Gould was really into comics as a kid.

The song is really heavy, with a drum focus. Mike Patton growls the verses, then gives his trademark power wail in all its tonal loveliness for the chorus.

Gould tells Marvel about the process:

“Superhero” actually just started from the sound of the song, where it has these pounding drums and it has like this throbbing kind of pulse, and we just called it the “Superhero” song. Because, a lot of the ways we write we visualize things.

Actually this is kind of interesting because we’re probably a unique band in a way. While we write music we’re talking about chord changes and different things like that. What we do is we describe scenes together, and we can visualize the scene and the music kind of comes. We kind of make movie scenes for movies that don’t exist. “Superhero” was one of those where it was definitely a superhero comic, I mean that was just the vibe of the song, and when Mike came to me writing words about it, we were already calling it “Superhero.” So it’s kind of like in the DNA; it’s a comic strip.

Gould goes on to reveal how they were able to keep Sol Invictus a secret for two years because they worked on it in their own space with their own stuff, so what seems a little sudden to some was really long in reality.
