The Faint made a stop on their newly formed tour in Columbus, Ohio this past Saturday.
Amidst an Ohio State sea of red outside, the Omaha natives got music fans dancing inside of the Newport Music Hall, a venue filled with character.
The electronic rock foursome played tracks from their lengthy discography, as well as three new bonus tracks from their latest LP, “CAPSULE: 1999-2016”. “CAPSULE” is a scattered timeline celebration that showcases highlights from the band’s career, as well as three ending bonus tracks.
The Faint was joined onstage by UK pioneering giants, Gang Of Four, as well as beat master, Pictureplane who opened the show.
One The Faint hit the stage, dancing immediately ensued. The packed venue swayed and thrashed when necessary, and excitedly cheered for the new Faint material as well.
The Faint tour will continue on with Gang Of Four and Pictureplane into Canada as well as various parts of the US.
