We here at EIN really like The Faceless. The idea of the act celebrating ten years of Planetary Duality by hitting the road and playing that record front to back, with a few other ‘fan favorites from every other album‘ thrown in for good measure, is tremendously exciting.

But as any fan of the Michael Keene-fronted (and lately, Michael Keene only) project is no doubt aware, there’s something of an elephant in the tour bus to address: The Faceless have missed a lot of shows over the past year. The reasons for this are myriad, and frankly outside the remit of what we cover here. Put it this way: we really hope this tour happens. That’s not something one generally feels journalistically compelled to say above a list of tour dates, but here we are.

Supporting The Faceless, in theory, will be Rings of SaturnThe Last Ten Seconds of LifeVale of Pnath and Interloper!
