The Fall of Troy released a 30 second teaser video on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter yesterday continuing to hint that they will be releasing new material in the near future.
The opening of the video depicts the letters “t-e-i-l-k-t-M-t-t-l-t-e-i-l-k-t-e-i-l-k-t-e-i-l-k-t-e-i-l-k” flashing on the screen followed by a black and white drawing of a lighthouse, which appears to then turn into an orange, yellow and purple palm tree. Next there is a black and white drawing of an eye followed by the words “future” “the” “are” “we,” or “we are the future” in reverse. The lighthouse, palm tree and eye continue to reappear in various sequences until “we are the future” starts flashing on the screen. Finally, the video wraps up repeating “08 08 20.” The band’s website also has graphic art stating “08 08 Mulkiltearth 20 20” appearing to indicate that a release named “Mulkiltearth” is due to be released on August 8, 2020.
