The Faceless Land New Vocalist and Drummer

THE FACELESS have picked up two new faces for their tour with NILE. Here’s the latest:

“Our buddy Mica from the band Ontogeny will be covering vocal duties on our upcoming tour with Nile. From there, you’ll just have to wait and see what we have in store! To clear up any confusion however, Big Chocolate is not our vocalist. So you can stop spamming our comments about it. Thanks! We’re also very pleased to announce that Navene Koperwies has picked up drum duties in The Faceless. He’s really brought the band to a whole new level and we’re stoked to be finishing the writing on our new album with him at the current moment!”

Nile Cancel Tomorrow's Show In Chile

NILE have been forced to cancel their upcoming February 20th show in Santiago, Chile. They have issued the following statement:

"The promoter has, at the last minute, refused to pay the band as agreed. The band is VERY disappointed, and if there was ANY way to still put on the show, I assure you they would do it! It's just not possible for them to fly the whole band and their gear to and from Chile, play the show and handle all living expenses out of their personal bank accounts. We hope the opportunity comes again for Nile to play in Chile, as they were very excited about this show. Please understand that if there was any way for Nile to still do this show they would do it in a heartbeat. We all sincerely apologize to the fans who have patiently waited for Nile to come to their country." More...

The Faceless Loses Singer, Seeks Replacement

Singer Derek Rydquist has announced his departure from The Faceless in order to pursue a college degree. Rydquist comments:

"The Faceless and I are sad to inform you that I will no longer be a member of the band. Long story short, there are things going on in my life that are keeping me from being 100% dedicated to the band, and that isn't fair to everyone involved in the band. I love this band, I love the guys, and I love the music, but in order for both the band and myself to grow to our fullest potentials, I feel that I must leave. I want to thank anyone who ever had a hand in helping out the band, every band we've toured with, all the new friends I've made in the last year, and of course the awesome dudes of The Faceless. I am sorry to disappoint any fans, but remember: The Faceless ruled before me, they ruled with me, and they will continue to dominate without me."

The Los Angeles group is now actively seeking a replacement. Here's a statement from the band:

"We have huge plans in 2008 including some killer tours and the recording of our new album! We are looking for someone who has a singing style similar to Derek's. A loud, consistent vocalist with confidence in his voice and stage presence is ideal for the replacement. A good sense of time, rhythm, odd meter and rapid sixteenth note voice patterns is also a must.

"If interested in joining The Faceless, please respond to www.myspace.com/thefaceless and send us a link where we can hear your voice. Before we try anyone out or send a track without vocals, we must hear your voice!"

Unexpect Comment On Nile Tour

Montreal's UNEXPECT have posted an update on their upcoming spring tour with death metallers NILE.

Says the band, "Tours, tours, tours & more tours! Another tour has been added to our 2008 To Do List. We'll be going alongside NILE, SUICIDE SILENCE and THE FACELESS on another US National tour in March and April. Check out the new dates below.

...and note that the band has been lucky to escape totally unharmed from a road accident while returning from a show in Chicoutimi, Quebec last Saturday. Our trailer is a total wreck but that's all that was destroyed. The joys of winter shows... but that won't deter us from our goals. Yesssssssss.......

Finally, anyone interested in booking us for additional shows in Europe for our tour being organized at the end of 2008 should contact this email: booking@ammd.net ."
