Biography

Encino, Los Angeles CA, United States (2003 – present)

The Faceless is an American band from Encino, California, formed in 2003. They released their début album, Akeldama in November 2006, and a follow-up, Planetary Duality, in November 2008. The band′s most recent album, Autotheism, was released on August 14, 2012.

The Faceless was formed in Encino, California by guitarist Michael Keene and bassist Brandon Giffin in 2003, with the original band name “The Faithless. ” In the winter of 2005, the band began work on a 4 song EP which would become the band′s début record Akeldama. After recording the drum tracks, drummer Brett Batdorf left the band. After a break in the recording process, the band decided to make the EP into a full–length record and recruited several drummers to finish the drum tracks for the remaining songs. They released their debut album Akeldama in 2006 and toured extensively with bands such as Necrophagist, Decapitated, Nile, and The Black Dahlia Murder. The band went through several fill-in drummers before adding current drummer Lyle Cooper to their line-up.

The Faceless would then release their sophomore full–length album, Planetary Duality, in November 2008. The album débuted at #119 on the Billboard 200. The record was critically acclaimed and brought The Faceless a new level of success. Soon after its release the band toured with acts such as Meshuggah, Lamb of God and In Flames. Prior to their performance at California Metalfest IV, co-founding member and bassist Brandon Giffin announced that he would no longer be in the group.
