~Rock & Roll is nothing more than a DeadMan Walkin’ ~
Springfield Missouri 7-31-2014 – A new song from midwest rockers TROY aka The Reality Of Yourself goes to show rock & roll will never die, but instead only come back from the dead with more surprises . “DeadMan”, A Witty song based on an American lore legend Bill Hickok, has the band rocking listeners with a tale of a gunslinger who ain’t afraid to pull the trigger and take a shot at his Wild West nemesis. This is the first official release of new music from TROY since they rose from the dead in late 2013.
TROY has received many acclimates and drawn much attention over the last several years winning contests & playing huge shows with big name bands (Korn, PapaRoach, Skillet, 3 Days Grace) while showing that it takes hard work and a “die hard” mentality to make it in the music industry. The bands sound is molded within their energetic live performance, showing dual guitar leads and pounding drums underneath soaring vocals is a hit-making formula.
What is even more impressive of the band is there genesis. TROY’s members all grew up in a small town of less then 400 people, with band members being friends since 3rd and 4th grade. Only recently have they experienced a member change, but these are still the same kids who were kicking each other under the lunch table arguing who rocked harder, Metallica or Tool.
“We never quit, and never die” says front man Cord Bishop. “Deadman was written to show that we metaphorically have the same grit and fierce desire as gunslinger Wild Bill. We want to challenge someone to try and shoot us down, before we can pull the trigger”. It is still a long way to the top for these rockers, but rest assured you haven’t heard the last of them. With big shows and more tunes to hit the digital market, the band literally is a Deadman walkin’ themselves.
TROY is set to play a hometown show with active rock artist Nothing More on Aug. 24 at the Outland Ballroom sponsored by Q102.1. Their new song “DeadMan” hits itunes and everywhere else this week so go give it a listen for yourself.
