Remember Faith No More? The band behind 1989’s smash hit "Epic"? (If you’re in your mid-30s to 40s, then this answer is yes.) Well, they’re back together again and in the studio, getting set to release their first full-length album in 18 years in 2015.

Britpop pioneers New Order, who recorded the chart-topping song "Blue Monday" in 1983, are also back in the studio, getting ready to record their 10th studio album. Though they never officially split up, they have changed labels over the years and this will be their first album without longtime bassist Peter Hook.

Erasure, who saw their biggest hits like "Oh, L’Amour" drop in the mid-’80s, are also gearing up for a fall 2014 album release, and Culture Club, the Boy George-fronted ’80s group who sang "Karma Chameleon," are currently in the studio recording their first album as a band in more than 15 years.

But if you’re too young to remember any of these groups, well, don’t worry too much – a bunch of ’90s acts like En Vogue, Limp Bizkit, Counting Crows and Smashing Pumpkins will also be dropping new albums in 2015.

Attention, Mark Wahlberg: The Funky Bunch are expecting your call.
