The Fall Of Troy breaking up

Washington rock/post-hardcore outfit The Fall Of Troy has officially called it quits. Since 2002, the group has released four albums, including three with Equal Vision Records. Thomas Erak (guitar, vocals) has issuedd the following: "After nearly 9 years, 5 full-lengths, 2 bass players, hundreds of shows, and numerous other achievements and follies, Andrew, Frank, and I have decided to end our career as The Fall of Troy. "This band has been my life, my love, the air I breathe, the food I eat, and what helps me sleep (and sometimes keeps me up) at night. I love and cherish the music we've made, the times we've had, and all the great friends we've met along the way. Andrew, Frank, and of course Tim, will always and forever have a special place in my heart. But it has come time for us to call it a day. After everything's said and done, there is no drama, there is no blow out, it's simply the three members of this band are on three different paths in our lives. "I always hold true to the fact that it's better to go out in style, to ride off into the sunset, than go down in flames. This tour coming up with Envy On The Coast and Twin Atlantic will be our last go round, and we really hope that all of you will come out and celebrate what has been so unreal and unbelievable – let's dance one last time! "We would really like to thank everyone that's ever been involved with the band, managed the band, booked a show for us, let us eat your canned food, sleep on your floor, asked us for a picture, caught me when I've almost been dropped, put out a record for us, driven us through a late night drive thru, or anything else any of you could possibly look back on and enjoy what this band was...Fun. "So make sure you come out to 'The Marked-Men of 2010 Tour' as it will be our last hurrah! We love you, and will be giving as much love as you've given to us at these shows. So that's that! We love you with all our hearts, thank you from the very bottom of them, and goodbye comrades."

holy shit i am so glad this is happening.this band was so pretentious, i saw them live and they were pissed because somebody tipped their mic stand over and they made it a point that nobody do it again. fcking dicks. (p.s. no clever one liner here)


jtizzle 2/27/2010 1:23:03 AM

I don't really dig them anymore, but I'll be at 3/13 in hopes that they play some good old stuff. they were part of my early high school years so i guess ill be there.

Decent band, but... last two LPs were subpar. Good luck for the guys.

Suicide should follow


turd_ferguson 2/28/2010 6:03:43 PM

Personally I think the singer sounds like a girl but they arent horrible when comparing them to Brittany Spears. I'm sure most of you gays are too hardcore to know who Brittany Spears is, right?


drew_BREEEEs 2/28/2010 7:14:49 PM
