At the dawn of the new millennium, Omaha’s the Faint was there for the ride as dance-punk morphed from a niche concern to the center of the indie rock universe and back. They haven’t released an album since 2008?s Fasciinatiion, but they went on a reunion tour in celebration of 2001?s much-loved Danse Macabre in 2012, and since then they’ve been working on a new album with Saddle Creek O.G. and former Bright Eyes/Monsters Of Folk member Mike Mogis. Now that album is ready to face the world. It’s called Doom Abuse, it’s coming out this April via SQE Music, and its announcement is accompanied by Tim Nackashi’s video for lead single “Help In The Head.” The clip features a man frantically running from… a laser pointer? A super-advanced rifle? Find out above. -- Stereogum
