    The Faint is an indie rock/synth pop band. Formed in Omaha, Nebraska,
    The Faint was originally known as Norman Bailer, a play on the name
    Norman Mailer. The band Norman Bailer also included Conor Oberst, of
    Bright Eyes fame, whom The Faint toured with in 2005 . He left or was
    kicked out shortly after joining, and therefore played no part in The Faint's
    current sound, though they are now signed to Saddle Creek Records, a
    label formed by Conor and Justin Oberst.
    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 Faint 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, towards a more dance and techno
    influenced sound. The album was an underground hit. Partway through the
    creation of the morose Danse Macabre, The Faint added Dapose, a death
    metal guitarist formerly of LEAD. Danse Macabre was also a critical and
    commercial success and has helped to establish a wider fanbase for the
    band. Their latest album is called Wet from Birth.
