The Faceless Part Ways With Guitarist, Confirm New Material Is On The Way

the faceless

Earlier today, The Faceless announced that they would be parting ways with their guitarist Wes Hauch, who has been with the band for just over two years, and contributed to their most recent LP, Autotheism, which dropped back in 2012 via Sumerian Records.

Going off a statement issued by the group, it would seem that this departure was a mutual decision between both parties:

“The Faceless have officially parted ways with Wes. Things were moving in different directions and it seems that this is best for everyone. We wish him the best of luck and we know he’s going to continue to do great things in music. Please keep supporting Wes in everything he does. We definitely will.” 

The outfit also went on to verify that they will still be working with bassist Evan Brewer, who was rumored to be leaving the band last fall, and will additionally be writing a new album in the near future:

“We are also currently working on new music with bassist Evan Brewer, who is remaining a full-time member of the band, to clear up any confusion. The cover album has also been put on the back-burner in place of new original material. We are very excited with how things are coming together and will keep you all updated as things progress.”

Though line-up changes can sometimes spell disaster for even the most seasoned acts, The Faceless have rebounded time and time again despite a consistent rotation of members, and I am confident that they will continue to do so this time as well. Hauch, who was adamant that he and the group remain on good terms, will now split his time between Glass Casket and multiple side projects.
