The Faceless Reportedly Drops Off North American Tour

Second Update: The Faceless has now issued a statement about the cancellation, available below, and followed by the original article.

The Faceless released this announcement via Facebook: "The Faceless has encountered a very unfortunate situation. We have decided to be 100% honest about what has happened. It would be easy for us to come up with a false excuse to cover up the truth, which is something that people have unfortunately become accustomed to when a band cancels a tour. However, we feel like we owe it to our fans to be honest.

"Two days ago, we were supposed to leave for our tour with August Burns Red and Between The Buried And Me. The day before we were supposed to leave, our fill in vocalist backed out, and told us that he would not be performing with The Faceless on this tour. His other, full time band did not feel comfortable with him touring in another group, and he wanted to respect their wishes.

"With this happening on such extremely short notice, it has left us with our hands tied. We have absolutely no choice but to regretfully drop off of our tour with August Burns Red, Between The Buried And Me, and Good Tiger, as well as our headlining tour with Scale The Summit, Rivers of Nihil, and Native Construct. This is a huge disappointment to us, as we were eagerly looking forward to touring with all of these amazing bands. We ask anyone that was planning on attending the BTBAM/ABR tour to still attend.

"We apologize to any fans that we have disappointed. We will do our best to have our next tour routed in a way that allows us to perform in the cities that we have missed due to the cancellation of these two tours. We are going to make the best of this unfortunate situation, and use this time to complete our new album."

Update: Between The Buried And Me has now confirmed The Faceless is off the tour with a tweet (posted below), but no reason was given.

The Faceless was due to kick off a tour with Between The Buried And Me and August Burns Red tonight, but Lambgoat.com and MetalSucks.net are reporting the band has dropped off the bill for unknown reasons.

There has been no statement yet from The Faceless as to whether this is true or what caused the cancellation if it is in fact taking place. We'll keep you updated as information comes available as to whether another band is being brought on as replacement or if this will affect any of the dates.

They could still tour as an instrumental band and get paid. Skeletonwitch did that and it was cool to see them throw down they're songs as instrumentals.
