Mike Patton has canceled upcoming tour dates for Faith No More, set to begin this Thursday in Missouri, citing mental health reasons. The dates would have marked Faith No More’s first American tour in five years. Patton has also canceled upcoming tour dates for Mr. Bungle. Read statements from Patton and the band, including impacted dates, below.
“We believe that forging ahead with these dates would have had a profoundly destructive effect on Mike, whose value to us as a brother means more to us than his job as singer,” Faith No More wrote in their statement. “He can count on our 100% support to do what he needs to do to get things right. Just as we also ask for your support right now.”
