‘Those Who Fear’ Announces Breakup, Final Show at ‘Facedown Fest’


Pittsburgh heavy hitters and longtime Facedown Records act Those Who Fear are calling it a day. They’ll be playing one final show as part of Facedown Fest on May 11 at the Glass House in Pomona, CA.

The band were already scheduled to appear on the first day of this year’s three-day Facedown Fest, the 20th anniversary installment of Facedown Records’ annual concert event, performing alongside Sleeping Giant, Bloodlined Calligraphy and Saving Grace.

The band states: “As of today, we are officially announcing that Facedown Fest will be our FINAL SHOW. This decision has been coming for some time now. It was a good run and the memories and friendships we’ve made, we will never forget. But some of us are currently doing different things with our lives that don’t coincide with a constant touring lifestyle, so we all have decided that it’s best for this chapter of our lives to come to a close.”

“We would like to say thank you to all of you that we’ve met along the way, to everyone that was ever there for us. Truly we are thankful from the bottom of our hearts. Come out to Facedown Fest and party with us one last time!”

Those Who Fear—vocalist John Healy, guitarists Luke Healy and Caleb DeRusha, drummer Jacob Wilder and bassist Josh Ziegler—formed in 2005. They released their third album on Facedown, “State Of Mind,” just last December. Previously, the veteran hardcore label issued the band’s albums “Death Sentence” (2014) and “Unholy Anger” (2013).

On Wednesday, guitarist DeRusha posted on Instagram that he is currently seeking a vocalist, so perhaps a new band will emerge after TWF‘s wrapup.
