The indie punk-rock band from Omaha, The Faint is set to release its new album, Doom Abuse on April 8th via SQE Music. The 12-track experimental electro-rock album premiered its first single, "Help In The Head" on NPR and Pitchfork debuted a laser-chasing ominous video directed by Tim Nackashi (Maroon 5, One Republic).
Doom Abuse is now available for pre-order through iTunes. Fans that pre-order Doom Abuse through iTunes will receive a downloadable track every week leading up to the album's release. A download of "Help in the Head" is available now with all iTunes pre-orders.
The Faint will embark on a national headlining tour that will kick off on April 24th in Des Moines at Wooly's and continue onto major markets including Austin, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, New York, DC, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The tour will conclude on June 13th in the band's hometown of Omaha at the Sokol Auditorium.
Doom Abuse reflects specific experiences from a specific time and sounds unlike anything else. For Todd Fink [vocals/keys] many of the Doom Abuses' lyrics were created automatically in a stream of consciousness. From boisterous, static-laced opener "Help In The Head" to propulsive aggressor "Evil Voices" to ambient and layered closer "Damage Control." The songs differ and balance each other out but all share the same space and overarching tone, another pattern seen after the fact.
