    Wow.
    Just Wow.
    3 hour soundcheck?
    1 hour pit stop?
    And some of you guys don't think drugs are an issue?

    lets keep this from becoming like the other shitshow of a thread.

    i think it's kinda safe to assume that after chason's post, he's likely no longer a part of the faceless...? i'll be surprised if they aren't dropped from sumerian soon after the album comes out.

    At least Chason publicly said this part: Sumerian forced the band to turn in the album otherwise they were dropping them from the tour

    Well, they actually made it to Summer Slaughter. But I'm not hearing good things about their reception, or live tone.

    The drama that plagues all these tech bands is often more interesting than their music.

    i wonder if they said he dropped days before because keene has been asking around for 3 weeks and cant find anyone willing to tour with him....

    but just as much as the drama between them is annoying, the other comments below that exchange are almost as obnoxious to read. things like that make me want to get off of facebook entirely.

    Justin's instagram story is watching tbdm, though i hadn't heard about the faceless's sound.

    They brought out 7 strings to this tour, so I'm assuming they will and just need more time since their new fill in had so little time to learn the tracks.

    Sorry, I mean like confusing or complex, just a silly joke how there are so many versions when the drama starts with friends and other artists chiming in each calling the other a liar.

    No, I mean I agree. :lol:

    Each of these bands have had crazy drama.

    Cryptopsy because of The Unspoken King, the Faceless because (insert passed few months here), RoS because Lucas is a douche + Guitar Pro, HAARP because Al Mu'min + fast forwarding and can't hold a lineup, Necrophaghist is legendary because of their 3rd album, and Cynic because of the drama with Sean Reinert.

    Thread summary:

    TL;DR......Keene is a bit of a jackass, and band drama sucks.

    Head the pleasure of touring with James when he was filling in for Native Construct, and he killed it every night. Excited to see them come through on the Chicago date.

    Anyone have any video material of the shows now? Only read some comments that they've been less than stellar.

    Lol, so they waited until three days before they were going to leave to confirm if they had a drummer or not?
