Faith No More last played in Europe in June of 2015, following the May release of Sol Invictus (Ipecac/Reclamation Recordings). The collection debuted atop the international sales charts: #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, and #6 in both the U.S. and UK. Rolling Stone dubbed the 10-song album “triumphant", the New Yorker called it; “a reminder of everything that made Faith No More great in the first place,” and the Los Angeles Times said, “Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus.”
Speaking to eonmusic in 2016, founding member Billy Gould said of the band's regrouping to make Sol Invictus: "We were happy when we released it, so everything that came after that we’re kind of grateful for. We’re just happy that we got it together to make some music".
