In an extensive Kerrang! article outlining FAITH NO MORE's history and the current activities of the group's former members, bassist Billy Gould and drummer Mike Bordin discussed the possibility of a band reunion at some point in the future. Here are their comments as they appear in the magazine:

Mike Bordin: “I was in FAITH NO MORE for 15 years. We were a good, honest band, and I was only ashamed to be in that band on a couple of occasions. Now if you're talking about [Mike Patton], he'd probably say that there were only a couple of occasions in his 10 years in the band that he wasn't ashamed to be there. Patton probably didn't see any difference between us and HANSON, for instance.

Patton will probably work with every single person in the world rather than come back to us. In his head, he's got it all worked out, and he feels superior about it. But you know what the bottom f.cking line is? I don't care. I've played with OZZY and KORN and JERRY CANTRELL, I play drums, and I'm not 'Mike Bordin of FAITH NO MORE.' But every time I see Patton mentioned in the local papers wherever, he's still 'Mike Patton, ex-FAITH NO MORE,' and that's the huge irony. Patton won't go back and [be part of a reunion], but he's still making a living off it. And you know what, that'll probably torture him to the end of his days.

Billy Gould: “If [Patton] said an emphatic 'No' to a reunion, that's fine with me. Patton was in the band for half the lifespan of FAITH NO MORE, so his relationship with that band is different from ours. The hard work was done when he joined.

“If I look back on the whole experience, I have a really unpleasant feeling. From day one, it wasn't that fun in a lot of ways. If it wasn't for the fact that people still appreciate what we did, I'd say all those years in FAITH NO MORE weren't worth it.”
