Since forming in 2002, this iconic experimental math-rock group has earned legions of admirers around the world, across acclaimed studio albums such as Doppelganger and Manipulator and influenced a generation of bands playing technically-minded music. But it seemed like the party was over in 2010, with the announcement of their disbandment.
Until, after five long years, this news dropped last year?
?Well well well?How is everyone? We know it has been quite some time since you?ve heard from us?But we agree it?s about time we get together and play some of these songs that mean the world to us and invite anyone who wants to come.?
And finally, on April 20, 2016, comes the release of a brand new album “OK” – for free, as a gift to their fans:
This album represents hope; that things can be different, that the past doesn?t have to always weigh on the present. We give this album to you now for free, because we know that you deserve it.
Rather than try to squeeze every penny from people who have given us opportunities beyond our wildest dreams, we wanted to give you a gift, for all the gifts you?ve given us over the years.
If you would like to support us further, you can do so through donating what you see fit, or by purchasing a vinyl or merch bundle. We look forward to seeing you this summer.
With endless love and gratitude,
The Fall of Troy”
“OK” is available now from www.thefalloftroy.com
Sporting the searing guitar virtuousity of frontman Thomas Erak, backed by the rhythmic maelstrom that is Andrew Forsman and Tim Ward, The Fall of Troy?s chaotic live show is a lesson in emotionally-laced musical dexterity that blends the technicality of Mahavishnu Orchestra with the sheer force of Nirvana. It?s what has earned them peers such as At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta and Deftones, in addition to setting themselves apart as a uniquely talented act.
The tour will be supported by Melbourne progressive powerhouse CLOSURE IN MOSCOW, fresh from touring with legends Coheed and Cambria and no strangers themselves to technical, yet melodious songcraft. It will be the band?s last tour before heading in to record their forthcoming third album, following 2014?s ?Pink Lemonade? and 2009?s epic ?First Temple.? Listen here www.closureinmoscow.bandca
Also on the road is Sydney cinematic rock group MENISCUS, on the cusp of releasing their second record, their first since 2011?s ?War of Currents.? After tours alongside Caspian (USA), This Will Destroy You (USA) and Twelve Foot Ninja, the band?s much-talked-about live show has been honed to a weapon of impressive proportions. Listen here www.meniscusmusic.bandcamp
Opening all shows will be Brisbane legends OSAKA PUNCH, whose return from the UK last year resulted in a sold out homecoming at The Zoo and new music in the form of ?Stonk?. Their fusion of prog, funk, math-rock and Zappa-esque quirkiness is the perfect warmup for this epic lineup. Listen here www.osakapunch.bandcamp.co
