Ex-FAITH NO MORE frontman Mike Patton has told Billboard that a possibility exists that a few previously-unreleased tracks from his former band may surface at some point in the future.

"If it is up to me, no," Patton said. "But it ain't up to me, so maybe. If I believed in them I would have put them out long ago. There are reasons that bands and musicians make demos and outtakes — because they are not good enough to make the record. A lot of people forget that."

Patton also praised TOOL for their decision to take out his TOMAHAWK project on the road with them despite the fact that his group adds no commercial value to the package.

"[TOOL] are friends of ours and I guess they like our band," Patton stated. "God bless them that they have the balls to follow through with their instincts. I'm sure that there were a billion and one people trying to talk them out of it because we don't sell a lot of records and we're not going to pay them to play with them. Basically, us being on this bill is not doing anyone any favors, industry-wise."
