The Faint recently talked with The Creators Project about their new album, Doom Abuse, and subsequent upcoming tour. Highlights include how the band has grown up around new technology, fully embracing it to make the current tour as hi-tech as possible. The band’s lighting has been upgraded many times, and currently the live set boasts a custom C&C drum kit, complete with LED lighting wrapped in the translucent kit.
Drummer Clark Baechle mentions how the band has always tried to be as innovative as possible with regards to their live show, relying on machines and now a laptop to really bring a unique, self-programed show to crowds. His experience programming outside of The Faint? Non-existent, but that’s the DIY ethic and always-learning mentality fans have come to love. Some of the band’s history and progression in recording is also talked about, and currently tour layouts and behind-the-scenes photos and graphics were also shared.
