The Faint

The Faint is an indie rock band. Formed in Omaha, Nebraska, the Faint was originally known as Norman Bailer (a play on words on the writer Norman Mailer). The band consists of Clark[?] and Todd Baechle[?] and Joel Peterson[?]. They signed to Saddle Creek Records[?] and released a few singles, but were unable to establish widespread sales, though they were extremely popular in the Omaha-area. After adding Matt Bowen[?], the Faith released Media[?], which established them within a small, national community of fans. While touring, Bowen left and was replaced by Jacob Thiele[?] who helped move the next album, Blank Wave Arcade[?], towrds a more dance and techno influenced sound. The album was an underground hit. After releasing the morose Danse Macabre[?], the Faint added Dapose[?], a death metal guitarist. Danse Macabre was also a critical and commercial success and has helped to establish a wider fanbase.
