The Faint Danse Macabre Deluxe Vinyl Edition
When the Faint released Danse Macabre in 2001 it absolutely blew my mind. The music was punk, electronic, herky-jerky dance indie rock that when blasted at a loud volume was impossible not to dance to. Dark wave meets new wave meets punk rock! A few months ago, Saddle Creek reissued this electro-dance classic and the band set out on tour, playing Danse Macabre in its entirety. I saw the show recently in San Diego and my ears are still ringing, my legs are sore from dancing, and I even lost a shoe in the ensuing dance pit—reminded me of the good old days! Anyway, the vinyl edition of the reissue comes with two 180 gram LP’s, two CD’s, a DVD, a booklet, and bonus song downloads! F—k, I can’t even tell you how amazing this band is live. The tour is still going! Don’t miss it when it comes to your town or your stupid. Check out http://www.thefaint.com for tour dates and to buy the Deluxe Edition of Danse Macabre.
Just let the poison spill
Spurt from your throat
Hiss like steam
Because the pressure is unreal!
I love this album!—Chris Coté
