The Faint announce a 12” single via Saddle Creek which features four new songs and will be sold exclusively on the road during their North American tour – see dates below. The 12” consists of The Faint’s first new songs since 2008’s ‘Fasciinatiion’. You can listen to Evil Voices below and The Faint will be playing this track on the tour along with other new songs featured on the 12”. The new songs were recorded in Enamel, the band’s Omaha based studio and mixed with Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes and long-time Faint collaborator.

On November 19th, Saddle Creek is also reissuing The Faint’s third album, 2001’s ‘Danse Macabre’. The remastered release has amazing packaging (I luckily got an early shipped copy), which features six bonus tracks from the era as well as an extensive booklet, will be available on CD in a triple-disc format with a DVD, and on double vinyl that also includes the CDs and DVD. Copies of the physical album will be limited to 5,000 for the 2xCD/DVD package and 3,000 for the 2xLP/2xCD/DVD package.
The reissue is supported by the tour, which kicked off last week. During these shows, the group will performing ‘Danse Macabre’ in its entirety for the first time ever.
