JIZZ ALERT: THE FACELESS WILL PERFORM PLANETARY DUALITY IN ITS ENTIRETY ON UPCOMING TOUR!

the faceless - planetary dualityThe Faceless’ Planetary Duality was one of our most favoritest albums of 2008, making both Axl’s (#2)and Vince’s (honorable mention) year-end lists. Since its release the band has been touring non-stop opening up for pretty much everyone — Meshuggah/Cynic, Cannibal Corpse, Obscura/Neuraxis, Misery Index, Atheist… these are all tours that have taken The Faceless out as openers over the past year, and that doesn’t even include stuff they’ve done outside the U.S. Jeez! It’s finally time for the band to headline their own tour (or at least co-headline with Dying Fetus), the Planetary Depravity Tour, which starts this Saturday night. If Warbringer are any indication, the scheme of having a young band support every band under the sun in order to build a fanbase can actually work, but I’ll still bet The Faceless camp are just a tad bit nervous to finally headline.

SO. The Faceless have announced via their MySpace page that they’ll be playing Planetary Duality in its entirety every night on the Planetary Depravity Tour:

We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be playing our latest album ‘Planetary Duality’ in its entirety from start to finish on our upcoming co-headline tour with Dying Fetus. I think this is going to be the best Faceless performance anyone has caught to date. You can expect a few older songs in there as well and we’re going to try and make this set a very unique experience for everyone who’s coming. Don’t miss this one!

This is obviously awesome news for anyone who loved Planetary Duality — moreso than many metal records these days, it’s definitely an ALBUM meant to be enjoyed from start to finish. But above and beyond that, this is a mighty ambitious move for a young band; it’s not like we’re talking Metallica playing Master of Puppets or Motley Crue playing Dr. Feelgood here. This is a relatively new band, and I think it speaks to their talent, ambition and confidence that they can do something like this and have fans react positively. I honestly don’t even think Dying Fetus could get away with playing Descend Into Depravity in its entirety, or for that matter any full record in their catalog. Way to go Faceless! Psyched! I’m listening to Planetary Duality right now for the first time in several months and yes… this album is still incredibly good.

Oh hey also, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the New York City show on 11/28! To enter to win, just email news [at] metalsucks.net with THE FACELESS in the subject line, and tell us why you deserve the tickets.
