Pioneering experimental punk-funk outfit Faith No More has announced its first Detroit concert in 18 years. The band will perform at the Fillmore Detroit on May 8, its reps announced Monday.

Tickets for the show, $45-$150, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. An artist pre-sale will be held beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday and a Live Nation pre-sale will be held beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday.

The San Francisco rockers formed in the early 1980s and released six albums before disbanding in 1998. The band reunited in 2009 and has played various festival dates over the last couple of years, though its upcoming tour marks its first round of North American shows since 2010.

A new album is due in May, the band's first since 1997's "Album of the Year." Its first single, "Superhero," is due out in March.

The band's upcoming North American run kicks off April 15 in Vancouver and wraps May 15 in Philadelphia.

Faith No More's last Detroit show was a Sept. 1997 concert at Saint Andrew's Hall.
