I'm actually really excited about hearing this. Information Society is back with a new album. It's said to be a return to the "classic" sound of their debut album (the one with the massive hit song, "What's on Your Mind (Pure Energy)").
You can hear their new 'longform single' "Land of the Blind", coming out March 4th, 2014 on HAKATAK International, on YouTube.
As much as I love their debut album, personally, between you and me, I am more keen on their Hack album. The reason is because this was my very first Compact Disc and I listened to this all the time at that time period. As you can see, the album made it on my top ten greatest albums.
Anyway, I am really looking forward to checking out their new album _Hello World, which is set to for Summer 2014. As of this writing, I don't have any album or single artwork to show you. This is still early days, be sure to check back for more information on Information Society.
I saw these guys last year, when they were touring for their Danse Macabre album. Having already seen them a couple of other times, I have to say that this is a great band live. They know their fanbase, they play the hits, but they are not afraid to experiment as well.
The Faint just announced their sixth album Doom Abuse, set for April 8 via SQE Music. Of course, they're also returning on the road in support of the new record.
I cannot speak for the other venues, but just looking at the Minneapolis date, this is a smaller-sized venue (The Fine Line Music Cafe). This will likely sell out in no time, so if you're a Faint fan, do yourself a favor and buy a ticket now. You'll thank me later when it sells out.
