The Fall Of Troy - Over And Out

Ihren unerwarteten Exitus geben The Fall Of Troy bekannt. Die letzte Tour wird noch gespielt, dann hat es sich mit der Band. Zumindest in der Formation.

Mit dieser Meldung wird der Titel der letzten Platte, "In The Unlikely Event", programmatisch - es war in der Tat der unwahrscheinliche Fall, dass The Fall Of Troy mit diesem Album die Grätsche machen würden, denn der "Manipulator"-Nachfolger war (erneut) ein gelungenes Stück Frickelkost für Verhaltensauffällige. Immerhin sahen auch wir uns gezwungen, das Album noch vor einem deutschen Releasetermin als Import durch unseren Soundcheck zu schleusen.

Nun ist genau seit dem 26. Februar dieser Fall eingetreten - denn letzten Freitag erklärte Thomas Joseph Erak das Ende seiner Band in ihrem MySpace-Blog. Detaillierte Gründe für den Hiatus werden nicht genannt, Andrew Forsman, Frank "Black" Ene und Erak hätten diesen einfach beschlossen. Die letzte US-Tour werde man noch spielen, dann sei - zumindest in der Formation - Ende.

Zumindest die Hoffnung, dass man sich auf musikalischem Wege irgendwann erneut treffen werde, schürt Erak, nachzulesen im kompletten Wortlaut des Fall-Of-Troy-Blogs:

"One Last Time, Lose Your Minds.

Dearest friends from all corners of the world,

I write to inform you that 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.


With A Heavy Heart,
Thomas Joseph Erak

PS. I have no intention to stop making music! Quite the opposite actually - but until then see you at the shows!" (Quelle: The Fall Of Troy MySpace-Blog)
