#MusicDownload 'Take Me to the Hospital' by The Faint, bonus track on 'Danse Macabre' Deluxe Edition (19 Nov, Saddle Creek)
11 years after the first release of 'Danse Macabre' in 2001, the remastered deluxe version is out since 19 November 2012. The tracks are remastered by Grammy winning Ted Jensen (Nora Jones, Billy Joel, The Eagles). The DVD includes archival video footage from the band, live projection videos from that era's tour dates, the 'Agenda Suicide' music video (directed by MK12), etc. It is announced that the copies of the physical album are limited.
Currently, the punk rock band The Faint is touring in US and Canada (today and tomorrow in California, 23 November in Arizona, 24 Nov in Nevada, etc). Saddle Creek owner Robb Nansel provides insight into The Faint concert atmosphere which is described as full of sweat, smoke, eyeliner, and those invigorating strobe lights: "I remember some of the shows at the Metro in Chicago - just seeing the crowds react was always the most rewarding moment. Seeing like 800 people, or whatever was in the room at the time, all freaking out and dancing around." Saddle Creek has incorporated some of the impressions into the 'Danse Macabre' Deluxe Edition album trailer.
