Wed 30 January – Bristol, The Fleece
Thu 31 January – Southampton, The Cellar
Fri 1 February – Brighton, The Haunt
Sat 2 February – Nottingham, Rock City
Sun 3 February – Glasgow, King Tut’s

Autotheism was released on 13 August 2012 and is widely regarded by critics and fans as one of the most exciting progressive metal albums of the year. Guitarist and band leader Michael Keene and drummer Lyle Cooper are joined by new recruits Geoffrey Ficco (vocals), Evan Brewer (bass) and Wes Hauch (guitar), to deliver the band’s most musical and progressive record to date. It’s a fast, technical and blistering record as a Faceless record should be, but is much more expressive, moody and expansive than ever before. Speed picking, flying double bass and skin melting guitar solos are aplenty, however a greater emphasis on clean vocals, big harmonies, moody passages and the use of keyboards, synth guitars, sequenced segments and even saxophone add a whole new dimension to the sound.
