UK Legends Faithless Announce New Music Is On The Way

Legendary UK electronic group Faithless has announced that they have new music and live shows on the way soon.

Today, the group’s surviving members, Sister Bliss and Rollo, announced on social media that they have continued to produce and record new material since frontman Maxi Jazz‘s death in December 2022. Jazz died “peacefully in his sleep” following a longstanding illness, according to the BBC.

The group’s last standalone release, All Blessed, came in 2020.

“As so many of you have noticed, we’re back… Some shows have already been announced but we couldn’t start the summer without a little personal note,” Faithless shared. “Maxi died just over a year ago and obviously we miss him every day. Thank you for all your kind words of support over this last year. It has really, really meant a lot.”

“In the meantime, we never stopped (couldn’t stop, never wanted to stop!) making music,” the message continued. “Even during Maxi’s long illness we recorded and released ‘All Blessed,’ and now finally, eight years after our last live performance, we are returning to festival stages across the summer and are planning some of our own shows later this year.”

“We will also be releasing new music; we are, in fact, in the studio as we write this,” Faithless added.

Though Sister Bliss has continued to play DJ sets since Jazz’s passing, Faithless confirmed in February that they will perform their first full-band live show in nearly a decade at the UK’s Camp Bestival this August.

The show is labeled as an “homage to Maxi and a celebration of all that is wonderful about the genre they redefined.”

In their most recent announcement, the group behind iconic tracks like “Insomnia” and “God Is a DJ” also wrote, “We know the show has to be something special: a celebration of our past, of our musical loves, of the man himself and of course, our musical future.”

Faithless will also headline Glastonbury this June, in addition to the UK’s Wilderness Festival and Germany’s Elbjazz.
