Fall of Troy have announced that Manipulator, their third studio full-length, will arrive May 1. The post-hardcore outfit will also head out on the road in support of the release, joining Dir en Grey and the Deftones on a 16-date U.S. tour kicking off May 11 in Phoenix. According to a statement from frontman Thomas Erak, Manipulator, the follow up to their 2005 Equal Vision debut Doppelganger, should deliver a diverse sound. "We've figured out what we want to sound like, and it's a million different things," Erak said.
The band was a wildly popular SPIN.com Artist of the Day in 2005 (read more).
