Justin McKinney blasts The Faceless’ Michael Keene on social media

Posted by on March 22, 2018

The Faceless’ Michael Keene has remained confident about the band and it’s future since all of his bandmates quit. While he has already shared his thoughts about rebuilding the band on the group’s Facebook page, it appears that his recent personal message via Instagram stirred ex-guitarist Justin McKinney the wrong way.

Keene wrote the following:

“Let me begin by saying, naturally there are two sides to every story and if you knew the events that transpired and the betrayal and disrespect I’ve received in the past few months, your jaw would hit the floor. It’s a miracle I’m still standing. Next just let me tell you that this is honestly a fantastic thing for The Faceless. Not only the morale, but the music and show. This year’s touring cycle is going to be a pleasure and it is going to be a Faceless show like you’ve NEVER seen before. I cannot wait for everyone to see it. Also the confirmed players I’m working with are absolute ANIMALS and I’m honored to have them working with me. We are going to have a blast. Many exciting announcements in the coming weeks.”

Keene seems to have presented his side of the story by making himself appear innocent by stating how everyone betrayed him. However, McKinney chimed in on his statement, reiterating that the frontman has a heroin addiction. Although it looks like the comment has since been deleted, thanks to MetalSucks and the use of screen captures, we still have McKinney’s comment. Things have likely been ugly behind the scenes for some time, or else there wouldn’t be so much turnover within the band. However, now they’ve taken a more public turn:

“Here you go again shifting blame away from yourself And towards the last 18 people who have quit the band. stealing money from the band stealing money from fans. Telling fans the reason why you can’t play your guitar is because of me being ‘nervous’ not because of your heroin addiction and the fact that you never practice. Back tracking your solo in spiraling, getting the bands equipment sold from your storage unit from non payment and using the money [Faceless manager EJ Shannon] sent you to pay for the unit was used to by heroin. Getting so high that you can’t even make flights on time. Ya we sure betrayed you dude. Get your fucking life together and take responsibility for your shitty actions.”
