Coming off the back of their surprise album release OK last year, mathcore overlords The Fall Of Troy will be bringing their bombastic fury to Japanese fans for the very first time in June. Joining them on the road will be Texas math-folk stalwarts Hikes, not to mention a healthy hand of regional acts.
The month long tour, organised by Dead Foxx, will commence in Tokyo and will include two special shows featuring track-by-track live rehearsals of their landmark albums Manipulator and Doppelganger. The band will also play shows in Nara, Nagoya, and a special ‘Dead Foxx American Village Festival’ in Osaka, which sounds uber-tantalising. A string of top notch Asian bands will offer support, including NENGU, Elephant Gym, Lagitagida and (fucking) NUITO.
David Isick of Dead Foxx has the same degree of stoked-ness as we do: “I just want to say that we were patient in curating this. The last tour I booked with Hikes inspired me to put this together for TFOT. It was a calculated risk; TFOT has never played here before, so I didn’t want to book huge places. I wanted to stick to midsize venues and offer a treat. Tim the older bassist has family obligations, so it came as a pleasant surprise that Drew (formely of CHON) decided to fill in and save the tour that we worked so long to get going. I am so thankful that they decided to take this trip.
