Album Review

One would think that a mixture of jumpy ska-punk and intense post-hardcore wouldn't work, but Folly's full-length debut is a surprisingly cohesive and solid album. It helps that the band has developed this blend organically over the years: after starting in the late '90s as a standard-issue ska-punk band in the general third wave style, the band has dropped the horns but kept the rhythms (think of how Ted Leo & the Pharmacists work ska and R&B into some of their songs) even as guitarists Agim Colaku and Geoff Towle introduce post-hardcore repetitive riffs into the tunes. Against this unorthodox but appealing mashup, singer Jon Tummillo occasionally comes off merely as a distraction; cutesily nonsensical song titles like "I've Been Running for Miles, Davis" and "Please Don't Shoot the Piano Player, He's Doing the Best He Can" and otherwise unmemorable emo-shaded lyrics don't help his case. Quirky but exciting in a way that many straight ska-punk or post-hardcore albums aren't, Insanity Later is at the very least an interesting stylistic experiment.

Good music from NJ = Not a Suprise

This album is such a big step forward than from their more indie release "For My Friends." Listening to this record is like a fun rollercoaster ride - with the blast beats, gang vocals, ska-influenced segues, and any other parts I missed that stand out.

folly is god.

amazing...who would think to make a ska/hardcore band...folly and its ill..

Not Folly to buy this Album

Wonderfully innovative New Jersey fivesome FOLLY effortlessly blends (among other things) Ska, Punk Rock, Posi-Core, and Hardcore. The result is a truly progressive and entertaining album, something new in a scene that so often tends toward homogeniety. Move over Norma Jean, Folly is my new favorite hardcore band! I would reccomend this album to any open-minded person with working ears.


Formed: 1997 in Wantage, NJ

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Although Folly began in the mid-'90s as a fairly typical ska-punk band somewhat in the mold of Sublime, changing musical trends and lineup shifts have turned the New Jersey quintet into more of a post-hardcore punk band with metal influences that largely overshadow the ska pulse that remains at the songs' core. Formed in suburban New Jersey in 1997 by high school friends Agim Colaku and Geoff Towle, Folly gigged around the area with an ever-shifting lineup based around the pair of guitarists; the...
