The only other announced member of the four piece is Jay Beaman, formerly of Tribune and Red Museum, who will be playing guitar and singing alongside Erak. Erak explained the bands sound as "Its rock n roll... explosive guitar wild rock!" Just Like Vinyl will begin recording their debut EP this month.

Does this mean Frank is going back to making Of Stalwart Fads tunes?

This better be good, I loved Fall of Troy. I wouldve liked Thomas on lead guitar and vocals alone, hopefully hes just as good with someone else.

hopefully Thomas just shreds and steps away from the mike...he has been trying way too hard to extend his range

It could be good if he doesn't try to control everything.

"hopefully Thomas just shreds and steps away from the mike...he has been trying way too hard to extend his range"

idk, seems like he's trying harder. from his twitter:

"Really been working hard on my voice since starting this band... Stoked to lay down some sweet melodies in the studio this month for the EP!"

I dont know, if hes actually learned to sing better it could be good. I liked his voice a lot on Phantoms on the Horizons.

don't know what's wrong with his voice. i just recently bought all the FOT albums. even 'in the unlikely event' is pretty good imo

Just like Vinyl or Just like The Fall of Troy?

If the latter, expect Erak to ruin another band via vocals.

I'm just a fan of his music. Yeah, the last few TFOT albums (excluding Phantom on the Horizon) weren't quite up to snuff, but I still enjoyed them, and I think he still has the potential to make some good music.

to be honest, if he goes straight down the pop path and doesn't keep writing awkward amalgamations of catchy whatever and post-hardcore then it has the potential to be sweet. same holds true for whatever style he attempts; if he doesn't try to mix it with other genres it could be great.

amen to that. ill listen to it with an open mind and be optimistic somewhat about it, but i never found him too great on his own.

considering Red Museum was a Fall of Troy ripoff this will probably sound like Fall of Troy. probably not a good thing

This will fucking blow donkeys for quarters.

Guys don't even hope for another ITUE, much less another Doppelganger. Thomas is clearly not interested in post-hardcore
anymore, this will sound like Clutch (ugh) with shittier vocals (ugh) and tons of unnecessary pull-offs (ugh).

I'll just say I really dislike Clutch and not say they are shitty or anything because idk. But seriously are you imagining Thomas Erak attempting to play in that style, because I am and it's making me want to cry a little. I'm fairly sure that's where he's going these days anyway, especially since he's calling this project "explosive guitar wild rock!"

What a faggot that dude has become.

^ I was thinking the same thing as far as that last comment sniper. He just seems like a conceited douche who is caught up in his terrible random hammer-ons and pull-offs and his horrendous "trying too hard" singing.
