The Faint announce new album, Doom Abuse, stream “Help in the Head”

on February 25, 2014, 2:49pm

Omaha New Wave outfit The Faint will release their first album in six years, Doom Abuse, on April 8th via SQE Music. Serving as the follow-up to 2008’s Fasciinatiion, the 12-track effort recorded in the band’s hometown studio/rehearsal space and mixed by local boy Mike Mogis (Monsters of Folk, Conor Oberst).

Our first taste of the album comes via the opening track “Help in the Head”, a feedback-laden dance-punk anthem that’s as utterly infectious as it is frightening and abrasive. Watch its equally jarring music video below, directed by Tim Nackashi, which vividly portrays the unforeseen downside of laser pointers.

Doom Abuse Tracklist:
01. Help in the Head
02. Mental Radio
03. Evil Voices
04. Salt My Doom
05. Animal Needs
06. Loss of Head
07. Dress Code
08. Scapegoat
09. Your Stranger
10. Lesson from the Darkness
11. Unseen Hand
12. Damage Control

In support, the band’s announced a US tour spanning late April through mid-June. Consult the full schedule below. Also, join us as we fondly look back fondly on 2004’s under-appreciated Wet From Birth.
