Channelling Kanye, frontman Chino Moreno said of the album: “Out of respect for Pac, Big, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, ‘Gore’ is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest, just one of”.

Would you like to see the band live though? Yes, you would. They’ll play their rescheduled Wembley Arena show on 3 Jun, just ahead of their appearance at Download Festival on 11 Jun. So those are your opportunities.
