Are you ready for a new wave onslaught? This third full-length from Omaha, Nebraska's native sons picks up where the Faint's previous release, Blank-Wave Arcade, left off but adds a darker and deeper twist. Merging rock, dance, and electronic with a blend of the melodic, Danse Macabre is a mature and multilevel new wave sound that gets better with each listen. For the punk or the new waver in you, the Faint pulls your heartstrings and leaves you wanting more. Tracks of note include the dance sensation "Glass Danse" and the late-night hit "Let the Poison Spill."
