MAR 7 2008 – THE FALL OF TROY are back!



Literally, they’re back in the States after playing the Soundwave Festival in Australia and a few shows surrounding the fest. Drummer Andrew Forsman described the crowds as, “somewhat of a mix between the U.S. and Europe. Once you got them going, they went absolutely crazy.” Of the whole experience, “It was incredible. The kids were nuts and the other bands were super friendly and welcoming.”

In April, THE FALL OF TROY will hit the road in Canada for the first time… and who better to do so with than with Canadian metal-gods, Protest The Hero. The 5-show trek will bring them through Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg.

Immediately following their Canada run, THE FALL OF TROY return to the U.S. for a five week headlining tour which launches April 18th in Denver, CO. The tour includes a stop at the Bamboozle festival on May 4th in E. Rutherford, NJ and the tour’s grand finale will take place near the band’s hometown in Seattle, WA on May 24th. The Dear Hunter, Foxy Shazam, and Tera Melos will be on hand to support.

In 2007, following the May release of their third record, Manipulator (which has sold over 40k records to date), THE FALL OF TROY took to the road with alternative rock mega-band, Deftones in the summer and with Coheed And Cambria in the fall/winter. The band made internet-headlines while on tour with Coheed when original bassist and longtime friend, Tim Ward, decided to leave the band. Not ones to miss a beat, THE FALL OF TROY enlisted the help of friend, Frank Black and finished out the tour with great praise. Black has since become a permanent member of the band while all sustain their friendship with Ward.

The band has also been gaining some extra attention since the release of Guitar Hero III last year. Their song “F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X.”, the single from the phenomenal sophomore record, Doppelganger, is featured in the game as an unlockable song. “They came to us and they wanted that song. Obviously it was a no-brainer to us to get on it. I think it’s really cool,” says singer/guitarist, Thomas Erak. When asked if he’s tried the song out himself, Erak says “I actually have tried playing it but I don’t really feel the need to play the game. I already do it in real life!”

Thomas, Andrew, and Frank are currently home and available for phone interviews. They’ll also be available at the shows for interviews or some other kind of unique feature.
