THE FACELESS’ NEW ALBUM TO BE RELEASED BY JULY?
It may have taken four years, but we do seem to be getting gradually closer and closer to a new album from The Faceless. We know they’ve been spending time in the studio, and they even debuted a new song during the Metal Alliance tour. Now, in a new video interview, guitarist/mastermind Michael Keene and bassist Evan Brewer reveal that guitars and drums have been tracked for nine songs, which just leaves bass and vocals, and that whole pesky mixing and mastering thing. Plus the band wants to record a tenth song, which was written by new guitarist Wes Hauch.
The most exciting news, though, is that the band would like to have the album “out” by the time they start Summer Slaughter — which kicks off July 20. (I put “out” in quotation marks because I think it’s an important distinction from “completed,” which is not synonymous with “released” the way the word “out” obviously is.) That’s les than three months to complete, market, and release the album, which isn’t a lot of time. In the old days, when print media was more important, it would have been damn near impossible — magazines need two months lead time, so just to have the thing written-up and advertised in such publications, it would have to be done in the next few weeks. Of course, in the internet era, that’s less of an issue (no pun intended).
So… fingers crossed. We could be mere months away from FINALLY getting a new album from The Faceless. Now all it has to do is live up to the hype…
