Folly

Folly is a band from Sussex, New Jersey. Their music is a mix of hardcore, metal, punk and ska. The band's final lineup included Arben Colaku on bass, Geoff Towle on guitar, Anthony Wille on drums, Agim Colaku on guitar, and Jon Tummillo on vocals.

They chose the name Folly due to its implications that a "costly undertaking having an absurd or ruinous outcome" is in fact the complete metaphor of the band and its members. In their words, "Folly is exactly what we are, not just as a band of fools who play ridiculously entwined and exploited musical genres, but as people who are continually kicked while they are down, while stubbornly and resiliently grinning in the face of mainstream adversity."

Folly has released two albums, two extended plays, visited 48 states, and have played 43 of them. Their broad musical palette and wide range of influences have allowed them to share the stage with such acts as Dillinger Escape Plan, New Found Glory, Chiodos, Catch 22, Converge, Senses Fail, Dragonforce, My Chemical Romance, Unearth, With Honor, Houston Calls, Taking Back Sunday, Atreyu, The Starting Line, and Bad Religion to name a few.
