Why I Enjoy Them: My first experience with the Faint was kind of weird: the song Birth was used as the soundtrack to some Flash game on Newgrounds back in the mid-2000s internet era. I really, really liked Birth (as it’s still my favorite track by them) and ended up exploring their Wet From Birth album as well as Danse Macabre and both albums ended up high on my “must listen” list. I’ve seen them live and they put on an amazing concert, and thanks to me putting this together this week I learned they have a new album coming out in a month and will be on tour later this year! They’re a pretty awesome electronic/pop/punk band that has a very unique style which I never get tired of.
