Folly Calls It Quits, Plan Final Shows and to Record New Tracks

New Jersey metalcore band Folly has officially announced plans to disband. Formed in 1997, the group released two full-lengths with Triple Crown Records. Prior to breaking up, Folly will play several final shows - most likely in the NJ-NY-CT region - in addition to recording some new tracks to be released online. A lengthy statement regarding the group's decision can be found here, though this excerpt is fairly illustrative:

"After a little more that a decade, we've decided to formally resign from the music industry. Whereas obviously we would like to have an impossibly absurd reason or scenario causing the end of this run, say 'Anthony moving to Lebanon to competitively knit table cloths' or 'Arben pursuing his lust for bartering lion pelts and hyena hides.' We simply just want to move on with our lives for a variety of personal reasons. It's supposedly a very cliché reason for a band to break up, to go these separate ways. Yet, it is as definitive and undesigning as the message in said Journey song: Someday love will find us, break these chains that bind us! Sadly, this band is no longer our raison d'être. We have other avenues to venture... other pages to turn."
