Esteemed dance-punkers the Faint have delivered some of the most fun live shows I’ve ever been to. Their time on Saddle Creek was fruitful, yielding three albums, including 2001′s irresistible good-time maker, Danse Macabre.
Get your dancing shoes on and prepare for a frenzy, because their latest effort, Fasciination, drops next week (Aug. 5). For this release, they’ve parted ways with Conor Oberst’s (Bright Eyes) label and formed their own, blank.wav, backed by a division of Filter Magazine.
From their first single, “The Geeks Were Right,” it doesn’t sound like the boys are paving any new ground, but rather further honing their existing skills of booty-moving. While you are waiting for the album, and their not-to-be-missed stop at 9:30 Club Aug 16th, enjoy this remix of the first single, courtesy of Does It Offend You, Yeah? and check the rest of their tour dates after the jump.
