The Faceless have just lost half of their band overnight: bassist Evan Brewer and drummer Alex Rüdinger both announced they’d be leaving the group. First was Brewer:
“After almost four years of good times with The Faceless I’ve decided to leave the band. I just feel that it’s time for me to make this move because I want to make new music, do more teaching, and to also have availability for any musical opportunities that may arise. The Faceless is a full time band and they need members who can commit to that schedule. I would like to thank the fans of the band for embracing me and encourage them to continue their support of The Faceless.”
About an hour later Rüdinger posted that he’d be leaving the band as well:
“After much thought I’ve decided that it is time for me to leave The Faceless to pursue other projects and seek out other opportunities. I will be looking for work; I love touring, writing, and recording and plan on doing all of these things for a long time to come. I would like to thank the band, as well as every person that attended a show in the last two years. I saw a lot of places and made some great friends along the way; it was a great experience.”
This leaves guitarist Michael “Machine” Keene (the lone founding member of the band) and vocalist Geoffrey Ficco to round up a band before playing KNOTFEST this weekend on October 25th, a mere four days away.
