The Faceless Prepare For Tour, Comment On New Album
October 18, 2010
Los Angeles based progressive death metallers, The Faceless, have been extremely busy as of late preparing to embark on a massive North American fall tour as direct support to Suffocation while completing work on their much anticipated third full-length release.

Now with the writing process for the new album in full force the group prepares to spend the fall on the road as part of Decibel Magazine's "The Decibel Defiance Tour" featuring Suffocation, Through The Eyes of The Dead, Decrepit Birth and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

Michael Keene (guitars) checks in with the following report in regards to their new album and upcoming touring schedule: "After the 'Summer Slaughter' tour wrapped up, we were left with a very refreshing sense of energy and change. It was great to get out and play such killer shows with all of those talented bands and the experience has super charged the excitement of writing new material and pushing ourselves to new musical boundaries as a group and individual musicians/performers.

"The writing process for our upcoming third record is in full swing and it's a very exciting, fulfilling musical journey so far. We'll be debuting a new song on our upcoming tour with Suffocation, which I feel is a great example of the direction in which the new material is headed. Expect a very progressive and vibey record, that maintains the high-energy that you would expect of The Faceless and even more thought provoking lyrical content than ever before.

"We'll be hitting the road in just a few days to wrap-up the touring cycle for 'Planetary Duality'. We'll be locked up in my recording studio in Los Angeles once we get home. You can expect lots of studio updates and blogs along the way. This will be the last tour we'll be doing until we complete the recording of our new record. With that said, we want to make this a special tour for fans who may have seen us on the 'Summer Slaughter' tour. Therefore, we'll be playing more old songs than usual and debuting a brand new song for you! Come and meet us at a merch table and we hope to see you all soon."

Spawned from the seed of aliens and birthed from the wombs of monsters, the members of The Faceless were raised in isloation with nothing but their musicianship to soothe their wretched existence. Crushing their earth enemies with weapons of mass sonic destruction,The Faceless are a musical force to be reckoned with.

As smart aliens would, they set up their base in Los Angeles to attack at the nucleus of today's plagued heavy music scene. Using advanced mind control tactics, they have managed to single-handedly assimilate death metal fans, hardcore kids, tech metal elitists, myspace scenesters, thrashers, and children of the shred all in one fatal swoop of aural hypnotism.

After such an incredible dynamic impact on the ears of humans, It is no wonder that the most advanced ancient civilization, the Sumerians, were the ones to truly discover the unmatched musical tyranny that The Faceless brings to this planet and has thus been the first group of musicians honored in to the sacred order of Sumerian Records.

The Sumerians were the first society to ever tab out a song, and they may be the last!

But it is for sure that one thing of this earth will be left intact after the apocalypse, TRUE METAL!

As 'Akeldama' will show you... in the end times.. you get with the Faceless or you get dead.
