In a recent turn of events, shred worthy guitarist Wes Hauch has left The Faceless in pursuit of other goals. The band / Sumerian Records offered the following statement…

“The Faceless have parted ways with guitarist Wes Hauch and have commenced songwriting for their much-anticipated new full-length album. The band states: “The Faceless have officially parted ways with Wes. Things were moving in different directions and it seems that this is best for everyone. We wish him the best of luck and we know he’s going to continue to do great things in music. Please keep supporting Wes in everything he does. We definitely will.

We are also currently working on new music with bassist Evan Brewer, who is remaining a full-time member of the band, to clear up any confusion. The cover album has also been put on the back-burner in place of new original material. We are very excited with how things are coming together and will keep you all updated as things progress.”

In response to people’s assumptions of a dramatic departure, Wes Hauch had the following to say via Twitter

“After reading some of these comments, I’d like to make it clear that there’s no bad blood between @Keenemachine and I. The future is bright.”

Stay tuned for much more from The Faceless! Also, watch out for Wes Hauch in his recent addition to Glass Casket (Between The Buried And Me / Wretched supergroup) and his upcoming project with Ryan Glisan (ex-Allegaeon, ex-Pyrithion) and Marcin “Martin” Rygiel (ex-Decapitated).  In the mean time, blast the metal below \m/
