Lyle Cooper has jumped The Faceless ship.
The drummer announced his departure from the group last night.
“I figured I’d clear up the air about my status with The Faceless,” dude writes on Facebook.
“After almost five years with the band I’ve decided to part ways,” Cooper says. “Over the last couple of years it seemed that the interests, goals and musical approach of the band was not that of my own. Also, managerial issues became too frequent with no resolution.”
That’s interesting. Who would’ve known there was trouble in paradise? These guys seem tight.
“These issues, I felt, made it hard for me as an individual to produce as a creative and enthusiastic member. I’m sure that proceeding my departure, the band will have no trouble finding someone with the right mindset and talents to step in and keep the band moving forward.
“Thank you to the fans and everyone who supported The Faceless throughout the years. I wish the band and its members nothing but continued success and make sure you catch them on their upcoming tours.”
Cooper says he will still be “pursuing my other musical projects so look out for new Absvrdist and Abhorrent this year.”
