The Faint have shared their new single “Young & Realistic” with Stereogum. The Faint’s Todd Fink says, "I believe this one goes in The Faint Danse Party folder. We wrote, recorded, and mixed it ourselves here at our studio in Omaha, Nebraska. Pretty song-y for club music and pretty clubby for indie/punk, this one falls right in the sweet spot. I love that warm bouncy bass synth (it's a CS15 if you must know).” He adds, “This might be a love song. Maybe it’s a respect song. Those are intertwined concepts I suppose. Without respect, love is a weaker bond.” “Young & Realistic” is available to share on all streaming services.
The Faint also announced North American fall tour dates with Gang Of Four. Todd Fink says, "We are so psyched to play shows with Gang Of Four this fall. They’ve been a long time influence on The Faint. Life is insane." The upcoming tour kicks off on September 29 in Minneapolis at First Avenue and makes stops in major cities including Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles and more. The tour will conclude with a hometown show in Omaha on Halloween at Sokol Auditorium. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
“Young & Realistic” is The Faint’s follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed album Doom Abuse which in many ways, is in parallel with a rebirth of the band itself. The Faint, started in Omaha in the mid-‘90s, have always created against the grain, disinterested in making anything except what their own inspiration drives them to make. Each album since their 1998 debut Media has shifted and evolved that desire. The musicians themselves are the constant, together embracing a style that is truly unlike every other band out there.
