After the recent departure of Evan Brewer and Alex Rüdinger and addressing rumors, Michael Keene (The Keene Machine man behind The Faceless) stated, "The Faceless fully intend to play on the Protest The Hero tour with The Contortionist." While I'm sure he had every reason to say that at the time, it looks the tour isn't going to work out after all. The Faceless have officially dropped to find a replacement in The Safety Fire. Here's the statement in regards to this:
"Due to internal band issues, The Faceless have been forced to drop off the upcoming Protest The Hero tour commencing next Friday November 14th in Leipzig, Germany. Replacing The Faceless on the tour will be longtime Protest The Hero friends The Safety Fire. All scheduled dates will be played and The Contortionist will continue to be on all shows."
