Although Folly began within the middle-’90s as a reasonably usual ska-punk band relatively within the mold of Sublime, changing musical trends and lineup shifts have turned the brand new Shirt quintet into even more of a post-hardcore punk band with metallic influences that largely overshadow the ska pulse that remains on the songs’ core. Produced in suburban NJ in 1997 by senior high school close friends Agim Colaku and Geoff Towle, Folly gigged around the region with an ever-shifting lineup structured around the couple of guitarists; the music group also self-released a set of demos in the later ’90s that noted their early, even more ska-oriented design. The addition of vocalist Jon Tummillo and Agim’s sibling Arben Colaku on bass solidified the lineup. By enough time from the 2001 EP For My Close friends, the very first Folly launch to feature long term drummer Anthony Wille, the music group had begun to include more aggressive components to their music. Putting your signature on using the well-established indie Triple Crown Information, Folly produced their full-length debut with 2004’s Insanity Later on. Resist Convenience adopted in March 2006, offering a far more metalcore-influenced sound.
