Last week, The Faceless continued their reputation of multiple lineup changes with the departure of drummer Lyle Cooper. And today, the tech-death metal group has announced who their new drummer is…though the answer shouldn’t surprise you.
The Faceless has confirmed that Alex Rudinger is their new full-time drummer. Considering that Rudinger has been the one filling in for Cooper in Mexico, and the fact that now he’s out of The HAARP Machine, it seemed pretty obvious that Rudinger was the band’s new guy. In case you needed an official statement, though, here’s one the band released earlier today:
“To clear the air on a few details, The Faceless has decided to part ways with drummer Lyle Cooper due to a growing difference in the level of commitment to the project. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and we’re sure he’ll continue to be successful with music. Having said that, we are very excited to announce that Alex Rudinger is our new full time drummer. We just played our first 3 shows with him in Mexico and what he brings to the band both musically and personally, is simply astounding. We are looking forward to a great future with Alex.”
In related news, The Faceless also revealed that they’ve forced to reschedule their UK run due to visa issues. The group is still set, though, to tour the States with Cradle Of Filth.
