Evan Brewer, who released new solo album "Your Itinerary" earlier this year (reviewed here), has now checked in to address his current absence from The Faceless during the band's tour with Between The Buried And Me. Brewer comments:
"I'm sure many of you have become aware of the fact that I have not been out with The Faceless on their current tour. I've been using this time to explore a potential musical opportunity that has presented itself.
"Initially we didn't feel the need to say anything because we thought it was only going to be a couple of shows missed but, due to the circumstances, it became apparent that it would be better for them to finish the tour without me. I am not looking to quit the band, merely exploring an opportunity and I hope to be back on tour with The Faceless again in the near future.
"We will fill you all in on details regarding future tours as soon as they develop. Please go support The Faceless on the rest of this fantastic tour and I will catch up with you all down the road." More...

Brewer states: "I'm way excited to tour with my buddies in Last Chance To Reason. As many of you know, I have done a lot of shows as a solo act performing just by myself. With the new album release being July 16th, I felt it was important to get back on the road to support this record. Therefore, this time I have assembled a band to come with me to accomplish the sounds we put on the new album.
"Musicians on this run will include Alex Rudinger (The Faceless) on drums and Brandon Giffin (Cynic) on second bass. We will be playing a good selection of material from both of my solo albums and I am really excited to have such great musicians playing with me. It's going to be a good night of music, so come hang out and catch me at the merch booth each night after the set.
"It's not always easy to find time for tours with this project, so please make sure you come out because you never know when we will be back. Thanks." More...

On July 16th, Evan Brewer (The Faceless) will release his sophomore solo album, "Your Itinerary," which features the additions of piano, drums, and guitars. According to a press release, this new effort is "more digestible than its predecessor, but also provides more depth and breathing room for Brewer to get even more adventurous with his instrument. Evan Brewer is a true enigma and with Your Itinerary he further proves that he is one of the most forward-thinking, talented bassists around today."
Brewer states: “As many of you already know, my first album Alone was made entirely using the bass guitar and no other instruments. That recording has a very special place in my heart, but I knew going into that process that it was going to be a one-time thing. As an artist I feel it's important to grow and evolve, so I fully plan on every album I make being quite a bit different than the previous ones.
“I am really proud to reunite with Navene Koperweis on this disc as he is an incredible multi instrumentalist and producer. Many will know him as the original drummer of Animals as Leaders or even further back as a founding member, drummer, writer and bandmate of mine in the band Animosity. As for his contribution to this record, he did all the drums, electronic elements and helped me with production and mastering. His contribution to this whole process was immense. More...
