Four years after Doom Abuse and two after greatest-hits album Capsule: 1999-2016, The Faint (Todd Fink, Jacob Thiele, Dapose, Joel Petersen and Clark Baechle) have announced the release of a new full-length. Egowerk is out on March 15th, 2019 via Saddle Creek. The band also just launched their Pledge Campaign today, this includes the pre-order of the album, special merch items, signed CDs and vinyl, handwritten lyric sheets, signed memorabilia and more.
They shared the official video for the first exerpt titled “Child Asleep“. Vocalist, Todd Fink explains, “Egowerk’s focus is on the current social state of the Internet: an amazing world of free knowledge, communication, and opportunity is proving to be a toxic battleground. One where the people most sure of their opinion are quick to take a stand and destroy anyone who doesn’t agree with them.”
“The more you learn about any issue, any issue at all, the more you understand that it’s more complicated than you think,” Fink says. “I’d like to see people less convinced that they’re right about everything all the time. I guess I think we’ll figure it out as time goes on.”
