The Faint Danse Macabre (Deluxe Edition) on Limited Edition 180g 2LP + 2CD + DVD

Do you remember a time before the words "dance" and "rock" were linked by a hyphen and the synthesized sounds of the '80s were a regular part of the modern musical landscape? The members of The Faint do, because they were there when it started to happen. In fact, you could even say they're one of the main reasons it happened at all.

Saddle Creek is set to reissue one of the crown jewels of the movement, an album that over time has proven to be as influential as it is exhilarating: The Faint's third album, 2001's Danse Macabre. It all seems like a natural progression now, but the release of Danse Macabre's predecessor, 1999's Blank-Wave Arcade, was a sea change for the Omaha group, showcasing a fondness for dance beats and dark keyboards while completely moving away from the indie-rock songs found on its debut, 1998's Media.

Seeking a unique sound was becoming a regular occurrence in Omaha at the time, which led to a slew of phenomenal local releases, including Bright Eyes' I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and Cursive's The Ugly Organ. The nine-song Danse sizzled with perfectly aggressive synth lines, Todd Fink's menacingly effected vocals, infectious beats, bits of industrial and goth, and, at the heart of it all, strong songwriting featuring the kind of minor-key melodies that make singing along inevitable. To top it off, upstart engineer and producer Mike Mogis perfectly captured The Faint's sound and attitude despite never previously working on an electronic record.

The Danse Macabre reissue is being supported by a tour that will find The Faint performing the album in its entirety for the first time ever, along with entries from across the group's discography and some brand new material. It will also be the first time fans have been exposed to the new slim-and-trim quartet of vocalist Todd Fink, keyboardist Jacob Thiele, guitarist Dapose, and drummer Clark Baechle.
