Tour de Force


  • Axl Rosenberg


One of the many stories we didn’t actually get to discuss this week is the news that The Faceless are the latest metal act to be banned from The Disney-owned House Of Blues in Anaheim, California. Oddly enough, their tour mates in Meshuggah and Cynic were not banned; what makes The Faceless any more (or less) offensive than Meshuggah or Cynic is kinda beyond me (Also beyond me: why people keep booking metal shows at this club that has repeatedly acknowledged it wants nothing to do with metal. But I digress.).

But the dudes in The Faceless can take consolation in these two facts:

  1. Walt Disney was a Nazi cock sucker.
  2. Immediately following the conclusion of their jizz inducing tour with Meshuggah and Cynic, they will HEADLINE their own jizz inducing tour with Arsis, Misery Index and The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravanganza.

In all fairness, I don’t actually know very much about TTDTDE, and even though their name leads me to believe I should probably hate them, someone I trust told me they’re great, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. And besides: with The Faceless presumably playing a full set AND Arsis AND Misery Index, this tour is clearly already worth the price of admission.

Of course it’s coming nowhere near NYC so neither Vince nor myself can attend, but for the rest of you, here’s the itinerary:

2/28-Houston, TX @ Java Jazz
3/01-Austin, TX @ Emo’s
3/02-Corpus Christi, TX @ House of Rock
