The Castor Troys are a driving punk rock / hard rock 4-piece out of Hamilton/Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Accessible, melodic, catchy, yet uncompromising. Peddlers of true stories and truer fiction.
Formed in 2009, The Castor Troys mix storyteller lyrics and a relentless sound that nevertheless comes from careful crafting.
With decades of experience under their collective belt, The Castor Troys draw influences from all different styles of 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 creativity to draw on. The band has played stages such as the CBC Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Sound of Music Festival, Burly Calling, PouzzaFest, 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, Guttermouth, illScarlett and Silverstein, among others.
