American tech death giants The Faceless announce new album title as ‘In Becoming A Ghost’ and addition of new member who has also worked with the band for some of their best records till date.
The Faceless posted this in their Facebook page:
I am so extremely excited to announce Brandon Giffin on our new record. For those who don’t know, Brandon is the original bassist of The Faceless and played on Akeldama and Planetary Duality and then took some time off from touring, followed by touring as the sessions bassist for prog legends Cynic for several years. We formed the band together when we were in high school and I am so happy to be collaborating with him again. Brandon is like a brother to me and he’s like my musical soul mate. Brandon will be playing on the new record, which is tentatively titled “In Becoming A Ghost” and playing as many shows as possible with us. Due to life circumstances, he may not be able to always make every tour with us, but he is an official collaborator in The Faceless again and will be playing whatever shows he can with us. I couldn’t be happier about this. More exciting member announcements coming soon! -Michael Keene
Previously only Justin McKinney from The Zennith Passage was announced officially as joining The Faceless on guitar duties, while Julian Kersey of Aegaeon and Chason Westmoreland from Hate Eternal will be handling vocal and drumming duties respectively.
