The Faceless Recruit Vocalist James Dorton (Black Crown Initiate)

The Faceless have recruited James Dorton (Black Crown Initiate) as their new vocalist. The band played their first show with Dorton in Los Angeles, CA last night (July 24). However, it’s worth noting that their set started about two hours late and when guitarist Michael Keene did take the stage he ended up rambling about his neurological disorder.

Keene said the following about his disorder on social media:

“Tonight is the night guys! Our first show in 2.5 years and 3 years in LA! This is Michael speaking and some of you may have heard about my hand issue. I have a neurological disorder and about a year and a half ago my left leg went completely paralyzed for about 12 days and a couple months ago I had my next flare up and my right hand went paralyzed!! Needless to say this was terrifying and I immediately went to the neurologist, but it’s been one long and difficult recovery and I relearned holding a pick and redeveloped my coordination JUST to play this show for you guys. So I hope to see you here and that you help me feel like the hard work was worth it!”

He also added the following about recruiting Dorton:

“We are thrilled to announce the one and only, James Dorton as our new permanent frontman! You may know him from his previous band, Black Crown Initiate. I think I speak for all of us when I say that James is a monster and master of what he does and we are thrilled to have him in the band.”
