The Faint Tour Canada With New Album

Published: 2004-08-31
Electro-clash band the Faint will be releasing a new album on September 14th. 'Wet From Birth' is the group's fifth full-length album – when 2003's 'Danse Macabre Remixes' is included, that is. Discounting the remix album, it's been over three years since their last record was put on shelves.

To support 'Wet From Birth' the Faint is going to tour around this globe of ours. The band will hit the UK, France, Denmark, Canada and the USA (to name but a few) in the space of three months. During those autumn months, the five-piece has a total of three Canadian dates lined-up. The Faint will be getting the Eastern dates out of the way before the heavy snow sets in, and will avoid the white stuff come November by playing the West Coast.

Touring with the Faint on their fall tour is Beep Beep and TV On The Radio. Beep Beep just released an album last Tuesday (August 24th) called 'Business Casual'. New York's TV On The Radio put out their debut album 'Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes' in March to rave reviews. 'Desperate Youth' was preceded by an EP called 'Young Liars' that first put the indie rockers on the musical map in 2003.

The Faint's Canadian dates:

October 10 Toronto – Lee's Palace
October 11 Montreal – Cabaret La Tulip
November 05 Vancouver – Richard's On Richards
