The Castor Troys are a story-telling hard rock band from Hamilton, Ontario. Through lyrics that tell tales of war heroes, bank robbers and clandestine lovers, this intrepid four-piece peddles true stories and truer fiction. Drawing inspiration from bands like The Headstones, Social Distortion, Motörhead, The Offspring and Iron Maiden, The Castor Troys craft fiery and infectious songs that draw you in and don’t let go.
Taking their band name from a character in a Jon Woo film, The Castor Troys are a jubilant mix of hard rock, punk, country and southern rock. “Castor Troy was the villain (played by Nicholas Cage) in Face/Off. He was elegant, flamboyant and stylish, instantly likeable, while at the same time single-minded and ruthless in his pursuit of his goals.” expands the band on their choice of name.
Formed in 2013, they released their debut full-length album “Come Hell or High Water” in May of 2015 and their 6 track EP “Legends Never Die” will be due out November 9, 2018. Working with producer Andre Kaden Black and engineer Tal Vaisman (Ascot Royals) has refined the band’s sound and enabled them to capture the fierce energy of their live performance onto record.
Proven by becoming the 97.7 HTZ-FM Rocksearch 2018 Finalists, The Castor Troys are a relentless team of stage veterans. Averaging over 40 shows a year, they recently completed a southern Ontario tour with The Maysides and Black Collar Union. They’ve played many festivals including Burlington’s Sound of Music sharing stages with countless bands such as The Planet Smashers, Scarlett and Silverstein. Writing music that is catchy and instantly memorable, The Castor Troys weave tales in an accessible and uncompromising manner. They have also shared the stage with Trampa, The Maysides, Black Collar Union, The Pistolwhips, The Hanson Brothers, The Planet Smashers, Silverstein, IllScarlett, Frank Turner, The Anti-Queens, Black Cat Attack, and The Matadors.
