The Faceless: “Don’t Let One 15 Second Video Mold Your Entire Opinion On Us”


The Faceless have been attempting a bit of damage control after a controversial performance at this past weekend’s ‘Bay Area Death Fest was the latest story to generate some bad press for the band. A fan shared a brief video of a very sluggish looking Michael Keene struggling through a song onstage during that set (see it here.)

According to fans in attendance, the band arrived late for what was supposed to be a full album playthrough of “Planetary Evolution” and only played a handful of tracks with many complaining about Keene‘s performance in particular. Today, June 14th, the band took to streaming some live footage on their Instagram, while also making the following comment via Twitter:

The Faceless of course haven’t exactly been having the best few years with numerous cancelled tours, a mass lineup exodus and allegations of Michael Keene having a heroin addiction made by a former member of the band. Currently the group have a number of North American shows booked, including the following shows:
