Evan Brewer stated VIa Facebook he can't dedicate the proper amount of time to the group anymore.
""After almost four years of good times with The Faceless I've decided to leave the band. I just feel that it's time for me to make this move because I want to make new music, do more teaching, and to also have availability for any musical opportunities that may arise. The Faceless is a full time band and they need members who can commit to that schedule. I would like to thank the fans of the band for embracing me and encourage them to continue their support of The Faceless.""
drummer Alex Rüdinger has been with the band since 2013. Shortly after Brewer announced his departure, the drummer took to his Facebook to announce his exit as well (around midnight, October 20). "After much thought I've decided that it is time for me to leave The Faceless to pursue other projects and seek out other opportunities. I will be looking for work; I love touring, writing, and recording and plan on doing all of these things for a long time to come. I would like to thank the band, as well as every person that attended a show in the last two years. I saw a lot of places and made some great friends along the way; it was a great experience.
I'd also like to apologize to any fans that were planning on coming out to see me with the band next week at Knotfest, as well as Europe next month. I'm sure I will see you all again at some point in the future!
I wish the band the best of luck, I have no doubts they will continue onward. Thanks.
Here's hoping the band can keep it together! Then again, the amount of people that have come and gone by now has been so extensive that unless vocalist and guitarist Michael Keene quits, The Faceless will live on forever."
