Q&A

The Faint's Todd Fink on Danse Macabre: "We Wanted People to Either Love It or Hate It."

The Faint will makes its triumphant return to Phoenix next week, following a two-year hiatus.

This isn't just any show: The band is playing its landmark synth-punk record Danse Macabre in its entirety. The concert will include a few new songs as well as fan favorites, so you will get your fill of "Glass Danse," "Agenda Suicide," "I Disappear," "Desperate Guys," and "Worked Up So Sexual" all in the same night.

We recently caught up with frontman Todd Fink to discuss the band's decision to tour on Danse Macabre, what Fink listened to while he was working on the album, and why The Faint made itself a polarizing band.
