Dual Entertainment: The Faint release new track, announce tour with Gang of Four

From long lonely walks through Allston to illegal mp3 sharing, there are many things that can instantly remind you of your early-2000s elektro-disko days. Hearing fresh beats from the Faint will certainly transport you back to those carefree days as well, and today the Nebraska dance-punk gents are back with not only a new song in the ultra-sexy “Young & Realistic”, but a fall tour with post-punk stalwarts Gang Of Four.

“Young & Realistic” — weren’t we all back then?! — premiered this afternoon on Stereogum, and it’s got a bit of a Danse Macabre-meets-Gary Numan vibe to it.

“Pretty song-y for club music and pretty clubby for indie/punk, this one falls right in the sweet spot,” Faint frontman Todd Fink tells the ‘Gum. “I love that warm bouncy bass synth (it’s a CS15 if you must know). This might be a love song. Maybe it’s a respect song. Those are intertwined concepts I suppose. Without respect, love is a weaker bond.”

There will be a healthy dose of respect going around come September, when the Faint and Gang Of Four team up for a North American run that hits the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on October 5. Full dates down south.
