Faceless. Possibly a tad too literal for a band name.
Though they’ve been together more than two years, the Chugiak band didn’t really register on the local screamo/hardcore scene until this summer after winning a timeslot at Summer Meltdown II.
Because Faceless had been playing mostly Christian venues, the metal scenesters weren’t getting a taste.
But with a new disc coming out in early November and a round of gigs at local nightclubs, guitarist Zach Gall said Faceless is aggressively marking its territory on the local metal scene.
Faceless’ sophomore effort, “Seconds from Reality,” will be released at Chilkoot Charlie's on Nov. 9 and at Players House of Rock on Nov. 10.
Get your fix now: The band plans to relocate to Tulsa in summer 2007.
Gall, 22, said while opening up for Audio Adrenaline at the Egan Center, AA members gave them some advice on going pro: Get out of Alaska.
Why Oklahoma, you ask? Well, besides being a mecca for cows and the birthplace of the parking meter, Oklahoma is a centralized point for touring the Lower 48.
“It’ll be cheap to live there, we already have some musician friends and contacts there, so our plan is to move there and tour as much as we can,” said Gall, who does “graphics and design stuff” at his day job.
The band intends to put some sneak peaks from the upcoming CD on its MySpace page later this week, so watch for it.
