Single Review: The Faint / The Geeks Were Right

By on Friday, 3rd October 2008 at 3:51 pm

Like your music angular and dance punky? Well rejoice, as The Faint have recently bounced back with a fifth album “Fasciination”, this time completely self-produced.

First single, “The Geeks Were Right” draws on the tenets of futurist literature and sliding, siren-call guitars… just what we know and love The Faint for, whilst being a bit different to their previous efforts…

Catch the video below, and tour dates below that.
