The Fall Of Troy To Tour With Thursday This Fall
August 4, 2009
The Fall of Troy, one of the hottest bands in the post hardcore genre, will tour this fall as direct support to Thursday, playing twenty-nine shows over a five-week period. The tour kicks off September 18 in Philadelphia, PA and will criss-cross the U.S., wrapping up in Raleigh, NC on October 24 (full itinerary below).

The Fall of Troy
- guitarist/vocalist Thomas Erak, drummer Andrew Forsman, and bassist Frank Ene - are touring in support of their upcoming album, 'In the Unlikely Event', due out October 6. The album was produced by Terry Date (Deftones, Slipknot, Smashing Pumpkins) and recorded in Seattle earlier this year. 'In The Unlikely Event' is Ene's first album with the band, and they are expected to debut new material on these dates. Live in concert, The Fall of Troy has become known for its blazing and relentless, full-on interactive set; one major Southern California daily called one of their shows "the best performance I've ever seen at this venue."

As with the band's previous albums, the new music on 'In the Unlikely Event' remains unpredictable and notoriously hard to pigeonhole. From jaw-droppingly technical rock anthems like "Battleship Graveyard" and blazing punk tracks like "Straight-Jacket Keelhauled," to mathematical melodic rockers such as "A Classic Case of Transference" and the laid-back love song "Nobody's Perfect," 'In The Unlikely Event' is an album that will satisfy long-time fans of the band - but in typical The Fall of Troy fashion, continue to challenge them as well.

9/18 - First Unitarian Church - Philadelphia, PA
9/19 - Toad's Place - New Haven, CT
9/20 - Bowery Ballroom - New York, NY

The Number Twelve Looks Like You Announce New Album, Tour
November 3, 2008
The Number Twelve Looks Like You have announced a February 10, 2009 release date for their third full-length release, 'Worse Than Alone' (Eyeball Records). The Bergen County, NJ five-piece self-produced the disc at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, NJ and brought in acclaimed producer/mixer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Dillinger Escape Plan) to handle mixing duties.

“Heart, body, soul and mind: the epitome of the #12 experience; A conflict of body and soul but a collective mind, “ commented vocalist Justin Pedrick, who also described it as, “Italian sausage and cubes of chicken breast meld into a soup with wild rice, baby carrots, onion and brussel sprouts with chicken stock and spices to make the perfect NJ gumbo soup. Served with whole grain bread. (Tomatoes and onions on the side with balsamic).”

The Number Twelve also announce a main support slot on the upcoming Fall of Troy tour (see all dates below). Vocalist Jesse Korman said, “Going on tour with buddy-bands is more fun than swimming in the ocean for the first time at 24 years old. We have a new instrument that we use live called a sword, it brings power and hope to the local townspeople. If you come join us in this harmonious ritual, you can feel the mojo as well. Its been a long, long time since we have been out on the west coast, so it's exciting to be out there with such a solid package, The Fall of Troy and Warship... dangity dangity dang. Hope everyone is awake enough to come out, those chemstreams the government is using on us are ridiculous.”

Biography
HOME TOWN: Mukilteo, WA
MEMBERS:
Thomas Erak (vocals/guitar)
Tim Ward (bass/vocals)
Andrew Forsman (drums)

The Fall of Troy is everything you wish your band could be - younger, faster, louder, and wellbetter looking. These are the facts, but dont let it get you down. Youre a snowflake, unique in your own way. The band was raised in Mukilteo, Washington, a small town about 30 miles north of Seattle. There isnt much to do there when youre too young for the bars and too old for the playground. So you do what every other bored kid whose dad just happened to be a session musician with Allman Brothers and Eagles in the 70s you start a band. The Fall of Troy was originally called Thirty Years War, but that didnt last long (get it?), and they decided to stick with their current name. The lineup has changed here or there, but the core group of three has and forever will stay the same. Before their 17th birthdays, the guys recorded their first full-length, a self-titled release on Lujo Records. The record was recorded in one-take over five days, and it shows. That is to say that the energy was captured but the production suffered. The band embarked on a couple self-guided tours down to California and played numerous shows in the NW in support of their record, but something didnt feel quite right. The band was progressing past much of the old material and was looking for something more in terms of label support. Fast forward to January 2005, after a lengthy courtship, the boys signed onto Equal Vision Records. Before the ink was even dry The Fall of Troy head into the studio with producer Barrett Jones(Nirvana, The Foo Fighters, Melvins, Jawbox) to record its second full-length. The songs on this record are a bit of old and new that will finally be a true representation of The Fall of Troy. Look for the The Fall of Troy on tour in a town near you this spring, and their record in stores this summer.
