The album includes 16 of their most beloved songs from five albums and is an excellent primer for new fans or a classic collection for those who’ve been nodding along since the Blank-Wave Arcade days. 
CAPSULE:1999-2016 serves to bookend this remarkable 17-year period for the Omaha vets, a time which saw them as imitable pioneers of electro-punk. In addition to highlighting songs from five of The Faint’s most popular albums, CAPSULE:1999-2016 features three new songs. The recently released single, “Young & Realistic,” and two bonus unreleased songs: “Skylab1979” and “ESP,” all of which feature not only original members Todd Fink, Clark Baechle and Dapose but also new addition Graham Ulicny (Reptar) on synth duties.  The new songs give a glimpse of what’s to come for The Faint, as they embark on a new chapter in their long, influential career.
