The legendary fifth album remastered and expanded Only last year, Faith No More returned to the scene with their comeback album "Sol Invictus" after a break of almost 20 years.
2016, the crossover and alternative pioneers now take a look back at their previous achievements. With "King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime" and "Album Of The Year" the band re-releases two of their musical milestones as deluxe editions on double CD and double LP.
"King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime" is Faith No More's fifth studio album. It was originally published on 28 March 1995.
It was the first album without guitarist and band co-founder Jim Martin, who was replaced by Mr.-Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance. But Spruance left Faith No More in the same year.
For the recordings the band went to the Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, New York. Andy Wallace, who had previously worked with bands such as Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Slayer and Bad Religion, took care of the production.
"King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime" reached fifth place on the album charts in Great Britain and eighth place in Germany.
All tracks of the album have now been completely remastered for the Deluxe edition. In addition, a total of eight rare tracks were added, including B-sides such as "Spanish Eyes" and "Absolute Zero" or the Bee-Gees cover "I Started A Joke".
