Their new bassist is their old bassist!

Their new bassist is their old bassist!

Slowly but surely The Faceless is getting itself back together. The group recently acquired guitarist Justin McKinney of The Zenith Passage and, over the weekend, it was announced that ex-bassist Brandon Giffin will be stepping back into the band! Giffen played on the group's first two records and then left to go hold the low end down in Cynic.

Oh, and the new album might be called In Becoming A Ghost, according to the statement made on Facebook. Hell yes! New Faceless!

I am so extremely excited to announce Brandon Giffin on our new record. For those who don't know, Brandon is the original bassist of The Faceless and played on Akeldama and Planetary Duality and then took some time off from touring, followed by touring as the sessions bassist for prog legends Cynic for several years. We formed the band together when we were in high school and I am so happy to be collaborating with him again. Brandon is like a brother to me and he's like my musical soul mate. Brandon will be playing on the new record, which is tentatively titled "In Becoming A Ghost" and playing as many shows as possible with us. Due to life circumstances, he may not be able to always make every tour with us, but he is an official collaborator in The Faceless again and will be playing whatever shows he can with us. I couldn't be happier about this. More exciting member announcements coming soon! -Michael Keene

No word on who will take up vocal duties or drum duties just yet.
