The Fall of Troy

This a live video that I took of "Laces Out, Dan!" by The Fall of Troy with their original line-up in Salt Lake City on June 29, 2007. The video quality is so-so due to the fact that I was standing at the rail right in front of Tim Ward's bass amp.

I forgot that I had this video while I was looking through my YouTube account and thought that I would share some exemplary musicianship. Unfortunately, the trio is no longer together. They broke up early last year, but they'll keep playing on my iTunes for many years to come. They've been a favorite of mine for the past seven years although I don't listen to them as much anymore. Thomas Erak is the lead/only guitarist and singer at the same time. He writes extremely technical and creative riffs. The song starts at about the two minute mark.

If you have ever played Guitar Hero you might have heard this song as well:


Also be sure not to miss the 6th Round FA Cup match-up between the Premier League top runners Arsenal and Manchester United on Fox Soccer Channel at 12:00 PM ET.
