Faith No More self-confirm Reading and Leeds appearances

90s Alternative Metallers Faith No More have self-confirmed appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals in August. The listing appeared in the band’s tour dates section before being removed, but not before the whole world seeming to have read it first.

The announcement has surprised many, with the band believed to have signed an exclusive contract with Live Nation to play the Download Festival. It is unclear at this time whether this contract is in relation to main stage headliner status only, with FNM though to be a second stage candidate at Reading.

The Reading and Leeds festivals take place 28-30 August. Though the lineup sucks to be honest. Sue me.
