The Faint Readies Gigantic Tour

After a split from their longtime home at Saddle Creek in May, along with an announcement that their latest album, Fasciinatiion would be released via their own blank.wav imprint, the five members of The Faint are gearing up to hit the road at the end of this month.

Fasciinatiion, due out August 5, is the Omaha, NE-based dance-punk band's first album in nearly four years, following (or perhaps we should say dragging behind) 2004's Wet From Birth. The band will first tour the new album around the U.S. and Canada before hopping the pond for a lengthy set of European dates, then down to Australia.
