#TBT – May 4th

Happy #ThrowbackThursday! Tonight’s official #THROWBACKTRACK is “Epic” from Faith No More album The Real Thing.  Drummer Mike Bordin joined us on the ‘Two Hours with Matt Pinfield Podcast’ today and told us the band has no immediate plans on the horizon:

“As it sits…we did the previous album Sol Invictus, loved how it turned out.  We felt good about what we had done as far as it was really done ourselves with only our control.  And it really felt satisfying to be able to come back after 15 years off and revisit that.  What’s next?  We’ll just have to wait and see.  I believe there will be something next but I can’t tell you when, because I don’t know.”

Check out the rest of this week’s throwbacks below.

MONDAY [5/1]: U2 – “With Or Without You” from their 1987 album The Joshua Tree.  U2’s 30th anniversary tour celebrating The Joshua Tree kicks off next weekend in Vancouver.  Fans of the band should really check out the 7-LP ‘Super Deluxe Box Set’ coming out June 2nd.  You get the gate fold double-album, The Joshua Tree Live at Madison Square Garden from 1987, plus three discs of b-sides and outtakes.  Additionally: there’s an amazing photo book featuring pics the Edge took during their original shoot for the album.

TUESDAY [5/2]: Lit – “My Own Worst Enemy” from their 1999 album A Place In The Sun.  They’re getting ready to release a new album later this year…the band has teamed with Pledge Music to sell some amazing pieces of their history, including AJ’s blue suit from the “My Own Worst Enemy” video!  You’ll get immediate access to two new songs with every pledge.

WEDNESDAY [5/3]: Fall Out Boy – “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” from their album From Under the Cork Tree, released ON THIS DAY in 2005.  Last week Fall Out Boy announced they’ll be releasing their seventh studio album Mania on September 15th.  Their tour in support of it kicks off on October 20th in Cleveland, if you pre-order the album now you’ll get early access to tickets, which go on sale to the public on Friday.

FRIDAY [4/29]: Guns N’ Roses – “Sweet Child O’ Mine” from their 1987 debut album Appetite For Destruction.  Axl Rose wrote the song for his girlfriend at the time Erin Everly…the two were married at the Cupid’s Inn Chapel in Las Vegas ON THIS DAY in 1990.  Tickets are on sale now for GN’R’s ‘Not In This Lifetime’ summer tour.
