The Faceless drop off the Between The Buried and Me tour, cancel headlining shows

Posted by on March 4, 2016

The-Faceless-630x418Today’s the first date of the lengthy North American tour of Between the Buried and Me and August Burns Red and they were going to have the support Good Tiger and The Faceless but if you were excited to see The Faceless during this round of dates, we have some bad news for you.

It appears that the tour will start without the support of The Faceless on any of the dates of the trek, including their solo shows during the off dates of the tour. Between the Buried and Me broke the news this morning via Twitter stating the following:

The Faceless addressed their issue via Facebook a few hours after the news came to light stating the following:

The Faceless has encountered a very unfortunate situation. We have decided to be 100% honest about what has happened. It would be easy for us to come up with a false excuse to cover up the truth, which is something that people have unfortunately become accustomed to when a band cancels a tour. However, we feel like we owe it to our fans to be honest.

Two days ago, we were supposed to leave for our tour with August Burns Red and Between The Buried And Me. The day before we were supposed to leave, our fill in vocalist backed out, and told us that he would not be performing with The Faceless on this tour. His other, full time band did not feel comfortable with him touring in another group, and he wanted to respect their wishes.

With this happening on such extremely short notice, it has left us with our hands tied. We have absolutely no choice but to regretfully drop off of our tour with August Burns Red, Between The Buried And Me, and Good Tiger, as well as our headlining tour with Scale The Summit, Rivers of Nihil, and Native Construct. This is a huge disappointment to us, as we were eagerly looking forward to touring with all of these amazing bands. We ask anyone that was planning on attending the BTBAM/ABR tour to still attend.

We apologize to any fans that we have disappointed. We will do our best to have our next tour routed in a way that allows us to perform in the cities that we have missed due to the cancellation of these two tours. We are going to make the best of this unfortunate situation, and use this time to complete our new album.
