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 ."

Summer Festival Slaughters New York City

On July 8th 2007 I went to see the Summer Slaughter Festival at BBkings in New York City. Of the venues in my area that book metal bands, BBkings has been one of my favorites for its amazing sound and size. It is never too loud that I feel like I’m going deaf, but still loud enough that I feel the music and rock out. The venue definitely has great tech guys running the soundboards and lights. With this in mind, I knew that I would get proper enjoyment of the bands and not focus on how much I can't hear a certain instrument or the vocals. I entered without knowing what to expect because I am not a fan of most brutal death metal, but there were a few bands I recognized and wanted to see how they were live, namely, Necrophagist, Beneath the Massacre, and Cephalic Carnage. I really wish I could have seen Arsis, but they had troubles with their van on tour and couldn't make it out. More...

Arsis Drop Off The Summer Slaughter Tour

Guitarist & vocalist James Malone regretfully explains why ARSIS had to drop off the Revolver Magazine-sponsored Summer Slaughter Tour while supporting their latest release, United In Regret:

"Due to circumstances beyond our control, we've been forced to drop off the Summer Slaughter Tour. I do apologize to ALL the fans that missed seeing us. To make a long story short, everything was going great for us until we reached Sacramento, California. After that show, our van began to give us trouble - which surprised us since the van had just been in for repairs twice before the tour even started and we were sure the problem had been fixed. So we took the van in to the nearest dealership, were told the problem could be resolved in 3 days, and decided to wait in Sacramento until the van was fixed. It's now over 2 WEEKS LATER and the van STILL hasn't been repaired. Unfortunately, it's already too late for us to rent a vehicle. We've gone broke paying for hotels. Van rental fees + the cost of gas would have cost us a fortune to catch up to the tour. Please understand that we made the best decision we could with the information we were given. Unfortunately, it turns out we made the wrong decision."

Offers to assist with lodging, gas card gift donation pledges, and general well-wishes for the band can be left at www.myspace.com/ARSIS

Light This City Tour w/ The Faceless, Antagonist

Fresh off a string of support dates alongside label mates ALL THAT REMAINS, Bay Area thrashers LIGHT THIS CITY have just confirmed a support slot on an upcoming two-week tour with fellow California bands The Faceless and Antagonist. Having spent the bulk of late 2006 touring in support of the band's latest album, 'Facing The Thousand,' LIGHT THIS CITY will also appear at the second annual California Metalfest alongside Testament, Flotsam And Jetsam, Sadus and labelmates BENEATH THE MASSACRE and THE FUNERAL PYRE over the fest's two days. Details can be found online here.

LIGHT THIS CITY recently completed filming for the band's first music video with director Soren for the track "The Unwelcome Savior" in Los Angeles, Calif. after the band's final night supporting labelmates ALL THAT REMAINS at the end of January. "It was an amazing experience, and we felt honored to work with someone who has so much experience capturing the intensity of this style of music," the band commented via the LIGHT THIS CITY MySpace page. "What we saw of the video looked stunning, and we can't wait for it to make its online and television debut! Stay tuned in the next few weeks for a teaser trailer."
