The Faceless Play Show Without Michael Keene After He Was Reportedly Rushed To The Hospital

According to MetalSucks, The Faceless performed without Michael Keene during their show in Winnipeg, MB last night (June 20) after he was reportedly taken to the hospital due to muscle spasms. Keene is the only constant member of the band and had just rebuilt the group after everyone else quit. This news comes after the band previously played a sloppy, abbreviated set at the Bay Area Death Fest, which has since been blamed on van problems. Keene’s current state is unknown at this time, but earlier this year he was called out by former guitarist Justin McKinney for having an alleged heroin addiction.

The Faceless’ Manager Comments On The Band’s Troubled Bay Area Death Fest Performance

The Faceless recently came under fire after they reportedly played a sloppy, abbreviated set during the June 10 date of the Bay Area Death Fest in Berkeley, CA. The group were supposed to perform “Planetary Duality” in full, but they showed up super late and only played about half the album. Now, their manager E.J. Shannon has commented on the situation via Facebook.

Shannon said the following:

“I’ll address what happened at BADF. The Faceless left to head to the show and 30 minutes into the drive their van broke down. I had to find a mechanic to come into his shop on a Sunday to fix the van. By the time the van got fixed, it was cutting it very close for The Faceless to make it to the show on time to play their set.

At this point, a lot of bands would just cancel the show and move on to the next one. But we are really trying to turn The Faceless‘ reputation around and make things right with the fans, so we decided to have the band rush up to Northern California and play their set, despite being extremely late.

Once they got there, there were a few kinks that needed to be worked out with the laptop, so it took them a bit longer to set up than usual. It was the first day of tour, and they hadn’t gotten to sound check because they were so late due to the van breaking down. Lots of bands (not all, but lots) have issues on the first day of tour, but these are usually fixed during sound check. By the time they were able to get set up and start playing, they only had about 30 minutes before the venue had to cut them off due to a strict sound curfew. So they played what they could from Planetary Duality. As for the sloppy playing…would you play a perfect set after a stressful day like that?

Michael Keene is working on bringing this band back to where it once was. The rest of the shows after BADF have been great, and so will all of the future shows. Shit happens, but The Faceless is moving forward.”

Shannon also shared receipts for the van repairs. This news comes after Michael Keene was forced to rebuild The Faceless after everyone exited the group. Keene has since faced public allegations of heroin addiction.

Fans Angry After The Faceless Reportedly Put On A Sloppy, Abbreviated Set At Bay Area Death Fest

Fans that attended the Bay Area Death Fest in Berkeley, CA to see The Faceless perform “Planetary Duality” in full last night (June 10) are not too happy with the band right now. The group reportedly showed up super late and only played about half the album, and the songs they managed to play were sloppy. Fans in attendance say Michael Keene was messed up, which is not too surprising considering he recently had to reform the band after everyone quit due to his alleged heroin addiction.

One fan told MetalSucks the following:

“They didn’t show up until an hour after their scheduled set time, which I stayed for, then they took another hour setting up, just to only play 4 songs from the album. On top of that they sounded like complete garbage. They had no merch set up and Michael looked like he was strung out.

“I feel lied to and cheated. Michael assured the fans they would be there to play Planetary in full and what we got was not the album in full and it sounded horrible. Michael could barely play his guitar.

The PRP also shared a statement a fan posted on The Faceless’ Facebook:

“I only had to wait around for 1.5 hours after TZP finished to be able to hear 50% of Planetary Duality played terribly. This is the third time in ONE year that I’ve been burned by The Faceless’ antics (no show at SS2017 Anaheim and set so terrible at SS2017 LA that Ken was throwing shade at Keene onstage).

I sincerely hope that someday everything is turned around and I and other fans can see The Faceless play live again, on time and well, but enough with the lame excuses. It was astounding to me how indignant Keene acted when told that they were far too late to play PD in it’s entirety, and then later offering the crowd to choose what songs to hear but then overturning the decision because “[I] like Ancient Covenant more.”

I mostly feel sorry for this round of musicians that have signed their reputations over to this band. They all seem like nice dudes and are extremely talented, but I guess they knew what they were getting into. RIP The Faceless.”

However, it seems the group had a different account:

“We had an awesome time last night at Bay Area Death Fest! Now we have a couple of shows with By the Thousands, and then Montebello Rockfest on Saturday!”
