The Faceless Part Ways with Guitarist Wes Hauch
The Faceless have released the following statement:
“The Faceless have officially parted ways with Wes. Things were moving in different directions and it seems that this is best for everyone. We wish him the best of luck and we know he’s going to continue to do great things in music. Please keep supporting Wes in everything he does. We definitely will.
“We are also currently working on new music with bassist Evan Brewer, who is remaining a full-time member of the band, to clear up any confusion. The cover album has also been put on the back-burner in place of new original material. We are very excited with how things are coming together and will keep you all updated as things progress.”
Hauch replaced Steve Jones in 2012, and appeared on the band’s last album, Autotheism. He is now something like the seventh or eighth musician to part ways with the band. I guess what I’m saying is, he’s a talented dude, but this isn’t the end of the world or anything.
Glad to hear Evan Brewer is stickin’ around, though. And if the band manages to get a new album out in under four years, well, that would be swell, too!
