Faint Praise

The Faint harvests a new-wave bumper crop from the heartland

The band's live shows have become quite the spectacle with stroboscopes, smoke machines, and Baechle, slinking about the stage in a wash of colorful lights while the musicians extract noise from keyboards and guitars. A former death-metal veteran from Omaha called Dapose was brought in last January to shore up the sound further. "On Danse Macabre we were trying to make it more electronic," says Baechle. "The melodies are a little bit darker. We gathered a larger interest in electronic-based music. We went for a more dance club-sounding kind of production."

Even so, Baechle hasn't the slightest idea of how the Faint's sound will evolve on the next album. "It could be totally different," he muses. "Or it could be similar."
