Mike Patton's (FAITH NO MORE, PEEPING TOM, TOMAHAWK) Italian language rock-meets-orchestra hybrid MONDO CANE will release its self-titled debut album on May 4 via Ipecac Recordings.
Recorded at a series of European performances including an outdoor concert in a Northern Italian piazza, the CD features traditional Italian pop songs as well as a rendition of ENNIO MORRICONE's "Deep Down". Patton worked with a 30-piece orchestra and choir to create the uniquely new MONDO CANE sound.

01. Il Cielo In Una Stanza
02. Che Notte!
03. Ore D’Amore
04. Deep Down
05. Quello Che Conta
06. Urlo Negro
08. L'Uomo Che Non Sapeva Amare
09. 20 KM Al Giorno
10. Ti Offro Da Bere
11. Senza Fine
FAITH NO MORE has announced its first East Coast U.S. concert in over a decade: July 5 at Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Waterfront. Tickets for the show, which will benefit the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, go on sale March 19, with a special fan pre-sale taking place March 16.
FAITH NO MORE will play three shows in the band's hometown of San Francisco in early April at the Warfield Theatre. The concerts will serve as a warm-up for the band's appearance the following weekend at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California.
FAITH NO MORE reunited last year and has played European shows, but has yet to announce a full North American trek.
