The Faceless Guitarist Michael Keene Comments On New Album

The Faceless guitarist Michael Keene has posted the following update online about working on a new album:

"After five years and two successful albums, we've decided to sign on with the sphinx-obsessed, record-pedaling Sumerian Records for some more! We've worked together from the start of both of our respective careers and have grown together the whole way.

"That brings me to the question, if it ain't broke, why fix it?

"There is no doubt that Sumerian has been there for us time and time again when we've needed them and they continue to grow and expand as a label every day. I'm very confident in their work for us and am proud to not only call everyone at Sumerian our business partners, but also our great friends.

"This next record is going to be the most musical and progressive record we've made. Since recording 'Planetary Duality', the goals of The Faceless have changed a bit. You can still expect a fast, technical and blistering record, but I personally am less focused on a musical aesthetic and more on musicality and making an expressive, unique, moody and expansive record. Speed picking, flying double bass and skin melting guitar solos are certainly still in order. However, you can also expect more clean vocals with big harmonies, some unique instrumentation, dark moody passages, interesting keyboards, synth guitars, vocoder and sequenced segments. It's going to be the most focused and depressive 'Faceless record to date.

"I'll also be filming as much of the recording process on my FlipCam and posting frequent webisodes along the way.

"I'm really excited to show our fans a glimpse into the daily life of The Faceless, the recording process and my little world at Keene Machine Studios. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do."
