The band comments:
“We’re so incredibly excited to kick-off the 40th anniversary of the Sound of Music Festival! Not only are we playing alongside massive acts like Bush and Live, but this is our second time sharing the stage with our heroes, Headstones. The festival wanted to include a strong local representation at this kick-off show, and they’ve done that with incredible local bands like Monster Truck and Crown Lands. Don’t miss Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion – all four of us became instant fans the moment we heard their first single. For true rockers, this concert is one for the ages!”
THE CASTOR TROYS‘ latest EP “Legends Never Die” was produced by Andre Kaden Black plus engineered by Tal Vaisman (Ascot Royals) and has refined the band’s sound, enabling them to capture the fierce energy of their live performance onto record, a great follow up to their 2015 debut full length “Come Hell or High Water” since forming in 2013.
“Six songs that draw influences of hard rock, punk, country and southern rock will make you sing along and pump your fist. This is veteran songwriting with youthful energy.” – The Castor Troys
“Legends Never Die” is available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp.

“Need a good song to pump you up for a long day? This classic punk-rock track (We Are One) might even fuel you up better than your morning caffeine boost. You’ll be screaming along with these powerful vocals and air-guitaring these riffs all week long.” – Alt Press
“The Legends Never Die EP departs from their debut album and takes their sound to the next level with a tighter chemistry and production. It boasts two full-throttle singles: “Blackout Love” and the follow-up, “We Are One”. The latter single, albeit a real stomper, sounds pretty similar to a track on their first album. It could just be me so, I’ll leave it to you to investigate and decide. Other standout tracks on the EP include “Burn This City Down” and “Wreck of the Bastard”. After a listen, you’re bound to walk away with at least a few songs stuck in your head! ” – LdnReverb
“Writing music that is catchy and instantly memorable, The Castor Troys weave tales in an accessible and uncompromising manner.” – Ignite Music Mag
“Hard rock revival? I fuckin’ hope so! Add another band to the burgeoning list – Ontario’s The Castor Troys. This hard rockin’ quartet infuse their dynamic new EP with strains of punk, country and loads of heavy rock. Adrenaline pumping screaming melodic anthems that only hard rock can deliver.” – Power of Pop
“The artwork for the Legends Never Die EP, that features a leather clad skeleton shifting into high gear in a muscle car, gives you a a fair idea of what to expect from Ontario’s The Castor Troys latest release, and you won’t be disappointed or surprised as this is balls out rock ‘n roll with a punk edge. ” The Punk Site
“They play a kind of anthemic punk rock with hard rock influences thrown in that has as much to do with Rise Against and Ignite as with Monster Truck and Iron Maiden… If you are into hard rockin’ riffs and tons of ooh’s and aah’s, feel free to check out The Castor Troys.” – Punk Rock Theory
