The Fall of Troy release OK#2 42 replies

The Fall of Troy, having recently released 'OK' last month after a six year hiatus, has suddenly released a second LP, entitled 'OK#2'. The band stated on their website, thefalloftroy.com:

A note about OK#2:

More art is always better, we think.

When we were making this album, we wanted to do a few things we haven’t had the chance to do previously in our career; work with multiple artists, work with multiple producers, and work only for our fans.

We understood when working on this album that everyone hears The Fall of Troy differently. We would like to respect that, and you, as much as possible.

So, here is a different take of the album, with a different take on the artwork. OK#2 represents a different version of us; the raw fury you hear at our shows and our earlier albums.

If you would like to continue to support, pay us what you want, or don't. This is for you.

RATM post countdown clock 47 replies

Influential rap-metal quartet Rage Against the Machine have begun to direct fans to a mysterious website called http://www.prophetsofrage.com. The website, named after a Public Enemy song, has fueled rumours of a reunion, while Chuck D has been posting images of RATM's London show from 2010.

A spokesperson for the band has moved to quash rumours of a reunion, though, claiming that while members of the band are involved, "This is not a RAGE-specific reunion," implying that this is instead a new project featuring members of Rage Against the Machine and Public Enemy.

The countdown is expected to end on May 31. More details will likely be revealed then.
