The Castor Troys are a driving punk rock / hard rock 4-piece out of Burlington/Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Accessible, melodic, catchy, yet uncompromising. Peddlers of true stories and truer fiction.
Formed in 2009 in Burlington, Ontario, The Castor Troys mix hard-hitting lyrics and stories, driving guitars and a never-say-die attitude. They write fiery, infectious songs and play for keeps. Named after the intelligent, elegant, and uber-evil villain in John Woo's classic Face/Off, The Castor Troys have a relentless sound that nevertheless comes from careful crafting.
With decades of experience and hundreds of gigs under their collective belt, The Castor Troys draw influences from all different styles of punk rock, hard rock, and blues. Influences of Social Distortion, the Headstones, Bad Religion and the Offspring are definitely present here, but the scope of the sound goes well beyond those confines. With most members being multi-instrumentalists and song-writers, there's always a wealth of influence and talent to draw on. The band has played countless stages, from the smallest of clubs to huge stages such as the CBC Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Sound of Music Festival in Burlington, and Canada's Largest Ribfest. Members have shared the stage with many well-known bands including Finger Eleven, the Headstones, the Hanson Brothers (of puck-rock fame, not the mmmbop kids...) Theory of a Deadman, Propaghandi, The Marble Index, The Planet Smashers, LimbLifter, The Reason, Teenage Head, illScarlett and Silverstein, among others.
