Progressive/technical death metal unit The Faceless have announced that they have parted ways with guitar player Wes Hauch, who will go on to join returning metal act Glass Casket (side project of Between The Buried And Me members Dustie Waring and Blake Richardson. You can read statements from both the band and Hauch below.
The band stated; ‘The Faceless have officially parted ways with Wes. Things were moving in different directions and it seems that this is best for everyone. We wish him the best of luck and we know he’s going to continue to do great things in music. Please keep supporting Wes in everything he does. We definitely will.
“We are also currently working on new music with bassist Evan Brewer, who is remaining a full-time member of the band, to clear up any confusion. The cover album has also been put on the back-burner in place of new original material. We are very excited with how things are coming together and will keep you all updated as things progress.’
Hauch had this to say; ‘Hey everybody,
I have decided to step down from my position in The Faceless. I’ve had a great two years of touring a lot of great times with the guys all over the world now. I’d like to give a big thanks to everyone I’ve gotten to meet at shows and all the amazing bands I’ve gotten to play with. I love all of the guys in the band and I wish them nothing but continued success.
I look forward to writing and recording new material with Glass Casket this year.
