“What is this, 1980?”

Profesisonal skateboarders Eric Koston and Steve Berra posed this question to synthesizer player Jacob Thiele when they popped backstage to film and berate The Faint before a performance. Thiele, of course, replied, “yeah, it is.” If you wanna know what’s like to chill with The Faint backstage, check out their clip on The Berrics Web site: .

The Faint is all about the 80s bleeps and buzz in their music, and so it’s no surprise that they use the 80s aesthetic on their new video for the song “The Geeks are Right.” The clip, which I posted below, looks like it was filmed inside Max Headroom’s head while he was on LSD.

The Faint is touring all over the world right now. Look up the tour dates and venues here.
