It appears as if Michael Keene is the only man left in The Faceless. Such a wealth of talent has left the band in recent history with the recent departure of Evan Brewer, Alex Rüdinger, Wes Hauch (not so recently) and, now, vocalist Geoff Ficco appears to be the cherry on top (not to mention Lyle Cooper and all the insanely talented individuals from before the most recent line up). Geoff just departed from the band with the following statement:

"After nearly four years with the band, I have decided to leave The Faceless to pursue new opportunities. Thank you to the fans of the band, as well as the past and present members of The Faceless, for the unforgettable experience. One of the projects I will now have more time to focus on is my black metal band Ys, which just released an album in November. Thanks everybody."
