Castor Troy serve up an instantly gratifying explosive fusion of heavy alt-rock complete with delectable hooks and colossal riffs. Already chalking up favourable comparisons to Alterbridge and Alexisonfire, Castor Troy are set for new heights, and are fully armed with their stunning debut album ‘Across The Water’, which drops on Monday 26th May through all stores.
Hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne and born mid 2012, Castor Troy feature four old school friends Benn Gibson (vocals/rhythm guitar), Michael Fulcher (lead guitar), Joey Dryden (bass) and Chris Gilks (drums) who spew their hearts straight into their music, resulting in a punchy and powerful sound that is stocked with fiery riffage and epic sing-a-long choruses.
Through widespread gigging throughout the North and radio support from BBC and Kerrang! Radio, the rising quartet have acquired a solid following. The band are now set to strike out to the nation in support of their forthcoming album, Across The Water. The astute combo took their time creating the album, ensuring that every facet of their sound was finely tuned. After nearly a year’s worth of work, the band have now fully completed the record and it hits stores this May.
The album kicks off with the instrumental melodic teasing of Chapter One, before Winter Lights sparks into life with its ball-busting riffery and killer refrain. The pace continues to build with the impressively crunchy low- swung groove of Undivided before the band strips down proceedings with the hauntingly majestic Nineteen. The four piece up the ante again with the record’s namesake, Across The Water and the track certainly makes the grade with its raucous delivery and gigantic chorus. The album then draws to a close with the potent The Condemned which swings and sways with gliding ease before beating your senses into submission. Look out for the band as they hit the road this Spring and stay tuned to their Facebook page for updates.
Castor Troy will release Across The Water on May 26.
