The Faint have announced a performance at The Growlers’ Beach Goth V festival taking place on  October 22nd and 23rd at Oak Canyon Park in Orange County, California. The festival will also include sets from Bon Iver, James Blake, Justice, Future Islands, Devendra Banhart, The Drums, Cold Cave, Wild Nothing, Hinds and HEALTH. Advance tickets and the full line up can be found HERE. The festival show is part of the band’s North American fall tour with Gang Of Four. The Faint’s 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 Faint have just added Brooklyn-based electronic artist Pictureplanewho recently released the critically acclaimed album Technomancer on Anticon, to open all upcoming shows. The Fader says Pictureplane’s songs, “Emphasize that feeling of living-in-the-present bliss through a mix of dance-y drum beats, modern EDM synths, and ’90s rap undertones—perfect for the club.” The upcoming tour will kick 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 shows are listed below.

Earlier this summer, the band shared their new single “Young & Realistic” with Stereogum. 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

“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 1999’s Blank-Wave Arcade 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.
