Omaha, NE's the Faint have gone through countless changes in their relatively short career, but with each shift, they have made a distinct new impression and turned more and more heads. The group's early years were a mix of lo-fi pop and tongue-in-cheek easy listening with a touch of punk rock ideals borrowed from their early skateboarding days. Along with a prepubescent Bright Eyes and a recently formed Cursive, the band was one of the seeds that spawned the explosive Omaha scene as well as a flagship act for the highly regarded Saddle Creek Records. With each release, the band moved more and more away from their guitar rock past towards keyboard driven dance music. With an explosive live show featuring video and an intense stage presence, The Faint have become not only one of the best selling acts on the Saddle Creek label, but a top concert draw across the US. Their new album, Fascination, drops on August 5, just in time for the show.
