Cyber-punk band The Faint has announced their Egowerk Tour for 2019. The tour is in support of the group's latest effort Egowerk, set to be released on March 15. The tour is set to kick off on the west side, beginning May 3 in Phoenix, AZ. The trek will continue to make its way across the U.S. including two-night stints in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Kansas City, before concluding in Austin, TX Aug. 16. Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday, Feb.1 at 10 a.m. local time, with some tickets being available via AXS. See the band's full itinerary below.

In celebration of the tour and album announcement, the group also released a new single from the new album titled Alien Angel. Lead singer Todd Fink recently spoke with Consequence of Sound about the new track, stating “I guess this song is asking if humanity is worth saving.” In the same interview, Fink also discusses the influences of the track, citing bands The Cure, Men Without Hats, Psychic TV, Tone on Tail, and Magazine as influences. He also stated that "after writing the song I’ve realized that once this happens we will be in a one world government, a planet controlled by one centralized superpower. This is also pretty scary…”
