The Faint

The group that ignited an electro-pop-punk movement is back with an 11-track deep-dive into themes on modern society, the internet, and ego — specifically social media and its dark effects. It’s been four years since the Saddle Creek flagship act The Faint dropped a proper studio album, and more than two decades since they first tore onto the Midwest scene, alongside area staples Cursive and Bright Eyes, with anxious electro-pop-punk anthems that meshed doomsday themes with thudding dance-floor hooks. The band made a unanimous decision to self-produce the entire record, making it unique and far more involved than any of their past work.
