The Faint

With death looming all about during the 14th century—famine, the Hundred Years War, the Black Death, etc.—there was a general sense of penitence juxtaposed with a desire for hedonism before Mr. Death waltzed you to the grave. The Danse Macabre, illustrated in paintings and woodcarvings of the time, reminds us that we’re united by death, and that silly little earthly vanities seem so ridiculous in the end. Such is the territory trodden by Omaha, Neb.-based new-wave band The Faint on 2001’s Danse Macabre. The now-four-piece band took elements of New Order and Duran Duran and added goth and punk tinges to it for a thematic album whose songs make attendees do the Danse Macabre when played live. The Faint is playing Danse Macabre (Saddle Creek)—remastered this year with six bonus tracks from the era—in its entirety this tour, along with other dancey classics.
