Electro-punk band The Faint are playing the Newport Music Hall this upcoming Sunday in support of their first new album in five years, Egowork. This album marks their return to Saddle Creek in addition to boasting the addition of keyboardist Graham Ulicny from Reptar. Egowork as a whole is a questioning and commentary on the state of social media in the modern world and features the tight dance beats you’re accustomed to from The Faint over the last two decades.
Supporting will be Ritual Howls (Detroit) and Closeness which also features Todd Fink from The Faint, and partner Orenda Fink, who is known for her work in Azure Ray. Closeness were last in town supporting Heart Bones at Skullys which we captured this last December.
The Faint’s albums perfectly transfer to their live show and dance floor so check out the Faint’s video for Child Asleep from their new album Egowork and don’t miss this show on Sunday at the Newport Music Hall.
