THE FACELESS’ NEW ALBUM IS ALMOST KINDA SORTA MAYBE FIXIN’ TO BE DONE
The Faceless are your friend who is chronically late everywhere you invite him. After a while you just start telling him to meet up an hour earlier than the desired meet-up time, so by the time he shows up he’s actually “on time.” Everyone’s got a friend like this and it grates on your nerves like crazy (and it’s rude!) but he’s still your friend and you love him, so you keep inviting him places anyway.
New album delays from The Faceless have become the stuff of legends; it’s hard to even believe them anymore when they say something is happening. But we keep on believing them because we love them! We want new Faceless like we want that sticky icky kind bud your chronically late friend always brings, so we greet updates like this one from Faceless mastermind Michael Keene with great happiness:
You guys…the final mixes of the new Faceless record are almost done and it’s sounding dick ripping. Glory be!
“Almost done” could mean any number of things, and it’s not difficult to imagine Keene continuing to tinker with said mixes for weeks or not being satisfied with them by the time the band’s stint on Summer Slaughter begins. This certainly isn’t the first time Keene has said the album was almost done. So we greet this news with cautious optimism. If the mixes do wrap up by Summer Slaughter and this project is finally out of the hands of your chronically late friend Michael Keene, I trust the timely businessmen at Sumerian will get this thing ready for release as soon as humanly possible. Which probably means the fall. So we’ll see!
