Last year, The Faceless dropped off the Betwen the Buried and Me tour at the last minute, claiming that their fill-in vocalist backed out. And while the band was set to tour Australia and New Zealand with The Black Dahlia Murder, Putrid Pile,Whoretopsy and Unravel starting this past Tuesday (11), for a total of seven dates. However, they’ve also backed out of that tour as well. There’s nothing on the band’s Facebook page about it. In fact, the tour dates are currently the band’s cover photo. The promoter, on the other hand, has been pretty vocal about how they feel about the band pulling out:
Due to complete incompetency by the band and their management, and with a total lack of respect for Soundworks Touring, and more importantly their fans, THE FACELESS have this morning officially cancelled their entire Australian and New Zealand tour. Over the past week we have been continuously lied to, misled and left in the dark as to the whereabouts of the band since their first scheduled appearance on May 9th.
We at Soundworks Touring have done everything in our power to bring the band here for these shows, but THE FACELESS have been completely unprofessional in their behaviour and this cancellation is 100% solely their doing.
To any disgruntled fans who wish to voice their opinion on this matter, we at Soundworks Touring are more than willing to put you in direct contact with the band and their management so they can address your questions. In the meantime feel free to express yourself on the bands official facebook page.
We apologise to fans for the cancellation and wholeheartedly share your disappointment, but as mentioned previously, this has been 100% out of our control. The rest of the tour package will continue as is and we hope you still enjoy the amazing show THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, PUTRID PILE, WHORETOPSY and UNRAVEL are displaying.
Yours in all sincerity, Brad and Dysie, Soundworks Touring.
Touring Australia is expensive, but the band should have had that figured out before heading down there. We’ll keep you in the loop if the band or their management respond.
