Fans of The Faceless Allege Michael Keene Owes Them Money; Manager Offering Refunds
A fan of The Faceless on Facebook (try saying that five times fast) is one of several who have now alleged that Michael Keene took their money and then never delivered the services for which he was paid.
The fan’s testimony is below. We’re going to keep his name out of it for now even though you can easily figure that shit out on your own because while we’re assholes, we’re not fucking assholes.
“I am one of apparently many ex-The Faceless fans who was stolen from by Michael Keene.
“In my case, $650 of my money was stolen in May 2016 after he agreed to mix/master my band’s album, and do 3 Skype guitar lessons. We had one Skype conversation that was pretty cool and informative. After that Skype call, I never heard from him again. No mixing, no further lessons, no refund of my deposit, and email correspondence went silent. All that money, wasted. It sucks because every time I’ve spoken with this guy in years past, he had been really cool to me. Actions (or in this case, inaction) speak louder than words. Mike, I was an enormous supporter of your band and you let me down. With all the annual insanity going on with The Faceless right now I figured this is a good time to post my story.
“Always always always sign a contract. Hopefully no one will fall for this type of thing again.”
The following screen caps of e-mails from Keene accompanied the post:
The Faceless’ manager, E.J. Shannon, is graciously offering refunds to any fans that got ripped off. You can e-mail him directly: ejshannon AT ejshannonmanagement DOT com.
Everyone else: that dude’s statement about contracts is solid advice.
