In the 5th Annual Loudwire Music Awards, our Best Vocalist of 2015 category was extremely diverse with multiple singers coming close to a victory. When it was all said and done, Faith No More's Mike Patton came out on top.

Faith No More experienced a fantastic 2015, releasing their first album in 18 years, Sol Invictus, to massive praise. Longtime fans went insane for Patton's vocal approach on songs like "Motherf---er," "Superman" and "Sunny Side Up," while Faith No More acquired plenty of young followers through the strength of Sol Invictus.

Faith No More visited many parts of the globe in 2015, bringing Mike Patton's extremely dynamic voice throughout North America along with less visited countries such as Slovakia, New Zealand and Costa Rica.

Congratulations to the legendary Mike Patton for beating out close contenders like Shinedown's Brent Smith and Ghost's Papa Emeritus III to win Best Vocalist of 2015 in the 5th Annual Loudwire Music Awards.
