The Faint Share Preview of DVD + New Release Date + Fall Tour

Pre-Order the album HERE

, Omaha’s The Faint are sharing a preview of director Jonathan Tvrdik’s short documentary from the Deluxe Edition’s DVD. The band’s personal collection of videos documenting the recording of Danse Macabre, behind the scenes tour footage, and live shows from the time were mined to offer a glimpse at the world of The Faint circa August 2001 when the album was originally released.

The remastered release, which features six bonus tracks from the era as well as an extensive booklet, will be available digitally on October 30th and physically on November 19thin either a triple-disc format with a DVD, or double vinyl that also includes the CDs and DVD. Additionally, the DVD will include the above mentioned archival video footage from the band, live projection videos from that era’s tour dates, the “Agenda Suicide” music video (directed by MK12), some live footage, and more. Copies of the physical release will be limited to 5,000 for the 2xCD/DVD package and 3,000 for the 2xLP/2xCD/DVD package.

The release is being supported by a tour starting the first week of November that will find the group performing Danse Macabre in its entirety for the first time ever. The Faint will also be performing favorites from their catalog, as well as debuting new songs. And aside from some warm-up gigs in August and September (including The Faint’s inaugural shows at Slowdown, the Omaha club run by Saddle Creek, and an FYF headlining spot), it will 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.

“We thought about what it would be to capture the essence of a dance club,” says Thiele. “I’m glad that the BPMs are all over the place and that we didn’t actually do a bunch of house tempos, which is more the direction we were trying to emulate. But we kind of kept it rock ’n’ roll.”
