Faceless Announce Covers Album

Metal Insider has an excellent new interview with Michael Keene from The Faceless; you should really read the whole thing, but here’s the part that I wanna discuss:

You tweeted recently that there’s new music being teased, is that your solo album we talked about last time?

I actually do have some stuff done for that, but I’ve been just writing lots of music for lots of different things right now, and I’m going to kind of sort out what is what when I have enough material for something. There’s new Faceless stuff in the works, amongst other things there’s a Faceless cover album being worked on right now and that’s the things that’s the farthest along right now. I have three songs tracked for it so far. Hoping to get that out maybe early next year, maybe January or February. We’ll see, maybe sooner.

Who are some bands you guys are covering?

We got Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Killing Joke, Soundgarden, At The Gates, Megadeth.

A very diverse collection.

Yeah! David Bowie.

Cover albums — and covers in general — are always an iffy affair, but I’m beyond curious to hear this. Autotheism saw the band sometimes moving in a more melodic direction; it’s entirely possible they’ll go even further in that direction with some of these songs. One way or the other, I expect their interpretations of these artists to be pretty interesting.

Side note: I assume they’re gonna cover some The Man Who Fell to Earth-era Bowie? I mean, that would be appropriate, wouldn’t it?
