Faith No More's official statement on reforming in 2009: "What's changed is that this year, for the first time, we've all decided to sit down together and talk about it. And what we've discovered is that time has afforded us enough distance to look back on our years together through a clearer lens and made us realize that through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right."


Patton on scoring "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2013): "Even if the scene was 30 seconds, I would write a three or five or 10-minute piece. Maybe it’s not going to fit the film, but to me it’s more important to explore and be able to go up, down, left, right. [Director] Derek [Cianfrance} approached me in a musical way, which was very respectful and enticing." Pitchfork, March 22, 2013.
