Chason Westmoreland Discusses His Exit From The Faceless, Band Responds To His Comments

The Faceless previously missed the first date of The Summer Slaughter Tour, and claimed they were forced to do so, after drummer Chason Westmoreland ditched them two days before the trek. Westmoreland has since taken to the Internet to offer his side of the story.

Westmoreland:

““Okay so not that I care about the Internet… but here it is. I didn’t bail on my band. July 8th is when I told my dudes. My efforts to reach out to drummers show July 13th. It’s impossible to get Michael anywhere on time…. when I’m at his house and he’s packing a bag for tour it takes two hours. Gas station stops on tour are an hour to an hour and a half. (Michael doesn’t drive) Soundchecks even manage to be a spectacle of their own at an astonishing three to four hours. ( How long does it take your band to soundcheck?)

E.J. Shannon is the best manager I have ever worked with, he makes very specific schedules that allow for mishaps and extra time losses and even he can’t get michael to a show on time, like when we were waiting to play Seattle for an hour… anyone remember that ??? That was Michael not showing up to the venue that night until after we had his stuff set up on stage at 9 pm.

I watched an entire room of amazing fans wait well over an hour to watch us … that wasn’t my fault. I didn’t think we were going on Slaughter because Michael also refused to turn in the album on time and it was a contingency for the tour. So is it really my fault an entire band can’t make their first show? Fact, they’ve had almost exactly three weeks, so there ya go.”

The band then fired back:

“You told EJ three days before the tour you were back in and then the next day said you were out and also had a bunch of choice words to say about all of us.

You also said you would only do the tour if we loaded your drums for you and you didn’t have to speak to any of us.

Wow, that’s some way to treat a bunch of dudes that have been your friend. If you’re going to comment on here like this, expect the same from us.“
