FACE WITHOUT FEAR Feat. Former STATIC-X Guitarist TRIPP EISEN: 'Deliverance' Video

The official video for the song "Deliverance" from FACE WITHOUT FEAR, the new industrial rock band featuring ex-STATIC-X and DOPE guitarist Tripp Eisen, can be seen below. The clip was shot over two days in Middletown, New Jersey. It features the debut of FACE WITHOUT FEAR's new bassist Nick Sledge who hails from New Jersey, as does the rest of the band: Kenny "Mantis" Hoyt (CRUSHPILE) on vocals, T.J. Cooke (METHODICAL) on drums, and Dante on guitar.

The first demo of "Deliverance" dates back to Tripp's time in STATIC-X, and, with Kenny's help, it's been updated and supercharged. The vocalist says: "It's about bearing your soul, allowing your true identity to be seen by others, and the vulnerability that goes along with it."

Formed in 2017 by Eisen, FACE WITHOUT FEAR draws you in with gritty-yet-polished guitar work, electronic sampling, and metal vocals infused with surprisingly refined melodic phrasing. In their lyrics, the concepts of individualism, liberty and freedom, as well as the universal experience with human relationships encompass their lyrics. The band also takes inspiration from the conceptual and futuristic world of Ayn Rand, and is where the band's name is drawn from ("Atlas Shrugged: Part II", Chapter 9: "A face that bore no mark of pain or fear... It was a face that had nothing to hide or to escape, a face with no fear…")

FACE WITHOUT FEAR has flavors of Tripp's previous projects along with elements of rock, metal and punk. The product is an industrial, nu-metal, groove-oriented mix.

FACE WITHOUT FEAR's live show features an album's worth of original material, plus a few treats for fans of Tripp's previous projects as well as a few dynamic updated covers by such artists at THE BEATLES, RAMONES and MISFITS.

FACE WITHOUT FEAR made its live debut this past August at QXT's in Newark, New Jersey. Eisen first made his return to the live stage in October 2016 with his hair-metal band ROUGHHOUSE and they've played handful of headlining shows, as well as opening for STEEL PANTHER, among others.

Eisen — whose real name is Tod Rex Salvador — has kept a relatively low profile for more than a decade since serving time for two statutory sex offenses in 2005.

In October, Eisen issued a statement that attempted to set the record straight about his involvement in the STATIC-X reunion and his music on the upcoming new album "Project Regeneration". The band has yet to publicly respond to Eisen's accusations.

FACE WITHOUT FEAR is preparing to release its second single, "My Parasite", before the end of the year.
