The Faceless guitarist Michael Keene has issued a statement on what the future holds in store for the band given the recent departures of bassist Evan Brewer and drummer Alex Rüdinger. Here’s what he had to say:

“To put any rumors to rest, The Faceless fully intend to play on the Protest The Hero tour with The Contortionist. We have already been jamming with some people that I think Faceless fans will be truly excited to hear are becoming involved in the group. This is something that needed to happen for a lot of reasons and everyone is going to come out stronger for it. I feel a sense of joy in The Faceless and I think everyone will pick up on that when they see us play.

We will be announcing new members very soon. Stay tuned. It’s exciting stuff.”
