The sixth album from The Faint, Doom Abuse, isn't out until 8 April in the US and 30 April in the UK (via SQE Music), but the band have been steadily releasing new tracks to get you excited for what's sure to be a damn fine album. We've already heard 'Help in the Head', 'Salt My Doom', and 'Dress Code', and now we're bringing you the premiere of their latest song 'Scapegoat'. Clocking in at exactly two minutes, it's a hyperactive bit of dance-punk with gritty guitars and driving drums that will make you want to dance around whatever space it is you happen to be occupying.

If you like the tracks you've heard thus far, make sure you pre-order the album over at iTunes and you'll get a download of 'Scapegoat' right away with your pre-order. Those of you in the states more than a good chance to see them live as they've got a pretty extensive tour kicking off at the end of April, and all of those dates are listed below!
