The Faint

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


It’s Marilyn Manson meets Daft Punk, basically! The Faint from Omaha, Nebraska have been thoroughly practicing their The Cure and Depeche Mode impressions over the years. In the process, they have become all that is, was, and probably ever shall be good about new wave music, combining arty electronics with smart social commentary to create albums that are sublime in their ability to recall more goth-rock times while still coming across as entirely original. In making angular, passionate, and hypnotic music, the Faint are not out to give a history lesson but rather to move a languorous generation of indie kids with danceable beats, catchy keyboards, pulsating bass-sounds and good on-stage presence and energy! The albums Danse Macabre and Wet From Birth are milestones of the alternative electro scene. The track Paranoiattack is sure to get any dancefloor going mad… Their new album Fasciinatiion is out now! Check out the catchy first single The Geeks Were Right!
