"We are thrilled to announce the one and only James Dorton as our nee permanent frontman! You may know him from his previous band, Black Crown Initiate. I think I speak for all of us when I say that James is a monster and master of what he does and we are thrilled to have him in the band."

There is no word yet on any new music coming from the group and James as of yet.

Our nee replacement

anonymous 193 days ago

message board is thriving with two posts today. certainly can't be new management's fault. maybe their burner accounts will join the party soon!

The Dickless

Band hasn't been good since Akeldama.

anonymous 193 days ago

anonymous 193 days ago

Heroin dealers on select future tour dates are stoked

anonymous 193 days ago

How many members has this band had now? If you want a better version of these cucks try out The Zenith Passage.

anonymous 193 days ago

well that's one way to announce that Black Crown Initiate have broken up lmao.

anonymous 193 days ago

Doubt they broke up. faceless do like an album every 12 years or something and it's boring

anonymous 193 days ago

Bring narcan

anonymous 193 days ago

while that's true, "you may know him from his previous band" sure makes it seem like they broke up lol.

anonymous 193 days ago

It clearly says "previous band". Michael Keene wouldn't lie to us right? He wouldn't create a perfect lie to make us believe one thing when really another thing is happening right? Right Michael? You wouldn't tell me you were playing a show and take my money only not to play it? What's in your back pocket? Is it a lie? No no, that must have been my mistake. I know you would never lie to me.

anonymous 193 days ago

Did Michael Keene break his arm at the show? Heard he is dying from playing those faceless tracks for far too long

anonymous 193 days ago

Marty from Zao here. This band's lineup changes give Zao a run for its money.

How has the news of Keene's incoherent rambling and them playing 2 hours late last night not hit this site? It's everywhere else. New owner f*ckin up

anonymous 193 days ago

"as our nee permanent frontman" This is funny on several levels.

anonymous 193 days ago

while that's true, "you may know him from his previous band" sure makes it seem like they broke up lol. The other main dude in BCI joined Rivers of Nihil so I'm guessing the band is done.

anonymous 193 days ago

How is this band still a thing? Are the "members" using it as clout to get into other bands? or are their day jobs at Lowe's that embarrassing they have to be in The Faceless.

anonymous 193 days ago

anonymous 193 days ago

Who?

anonymous 193 days ago

Lol who? No one cares.

anonymous 193 days ago

Lol who? No one cares. We literally all care and are talking about it, are you f*cking blind?

If you rearrange the letters in "The Faceless" you get "who cares."

Too much peepee in my weewee

Lambgoat is just slow 4chan at this point, exactly mirrors the trends on that site but always with a 5 year delay. Have fun getting increasingly frustrated by the "exploring anonymous social media platforms because of the 2016 election" newgay crowd that doesn't understand or rewrites your jokes and culture

hi it's me ej i love this post

anonymous 192 days ago

Give us the incoherent Michael Keene rant story from a few nights ago

anonymous 192 days ago

That's playing Russian roulette with your finances. What's his name will pull out of the tour or cancel many dates random when he's too strung out or jonesing to perform.

anonymous 192 days ago

Thanks for the link WOW Inexcusable Get help, you had your prime. Or maybe get strung out at least AFTER the show.

anonymous 192 days ago

To be fair I saw the faceless open for Dillinger in like 2013 with Alex rudinger on drums and they were really good

anonymous 192 days ago

As long as they don't share needles, let the kids have fun

anonymous 192 days ago

I can't really throw shade because planetary duality is a banger and he was really cool to my nephew way back. My nephew is insanely good at guitar and drums and Michael was nice enough to give him some tips. That being said, get your shit together, go to detox, right some decent riffs and be an adult. Stop letting your fans down.

anonymous 192 days ago

YES, 2005 - 2013 They were great But what does that have to do with now ?

anonymous 192 days ago

Rubber glove, butthole digging, nugget finding 2023 USA!

anonymous 192 days ago

Did anyone tell him he can get heroin on the streets for a lot less effort?

anonymous 192 days ago

THE KEENE MACHINE KEEPS TURNING

anonymous 192 days ago

Some people might think drugs have turned Keene into an asshole. That's not true. He was an asshole before drugs too.

anonymous 192 days ago

Maybe Michael Keene and Hunter Biden are buddies...

anonymous 192 days ago

He shoulda gone to TLTSOL. Heard they had some openings

anonymous 192 days ago

Planetary Duality is so good that all mistakes are forgiven.

anonymous 192 days ago

Michael Keene still does heroin most likely

right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult., right some decent riffs and be an adult.

Sage looks like the cowardly Lion,-from the Wizard of Oz.

anonymous 191 days ago

Band hasn't been good since Akeldama. You're an absolute f*cking Neanderthal to discount planetary duality. THAT was the last noteworthy release. Rip to this new dudes "career"
