After over two decades playing keyboards in massively influential alt-metal band Faith No More, Roddy Bottum is turning his hand to writing an opera about Sasquatch. This surprising move actually makes a weird kind of sense when you look at the band's smart-alec, genre-blending track record. And perhaps the choice of a hirsute mountain man as a subject is a nostalgic callback to his flowing '80s permed locks?

In any case, this story of a hillbilly family who meet a semi-mythical man beast should mix intriguing musical experimentation with plenty of monkey business.
