TROLE is a balls-out Rock'n'Roll band from Skin City, Ontario, Canada. TROLE is like that old Plymouth that just won't stop going and despite the slightly rusted, dusty exterior, it runs strong and true and shows no sign of giving in. Their roots-oriented brand of modernized rock'n'roll combines some of the elements of blues, shuffle and swing with the energy of punk rock and rockabilly.

Their energetic and entertaining live show has audiences coming back for more and this sweat spewing foursome has done over 850 live shows since forming in 2000. They have shared the stage with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, D.O.A., Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman and worked with some of Canada's finest studio musicians such as Randy Cooke (Hilary Duff, Ronnie Hawkins, Sas Jordan), Juno winning saxophonist Richard Underhill (Shuffle Demons, Astrogroove), Pat Kilbride (Ian Hunter), Richard Bell (Janice Joplin, The Band), Fergus Marsh (Bruce Cockburn, Peter Murphy) and others.

TROLE released their untitled debut album in 2007 on independent Vancouver label Flying Saucer Records. The band joined with the label for their current release which was recorded in Toronto at Liquid Toronto studios by Alec Fraser (Jeff Healey, Broken Joe, Bo Diddly) after struggling to find a record they were confident releasing. Their independent demo, The Illegal Bootleg Demos sold out and there were two other recordings that preceded the current release, one at Metalworks and one at Firescape Recordings both in Toronto. The band pulled the plug on the Firescape recording but still plans to release the four-song Metalworks recording at another time.

The band is currently booking shows across the universe and toured Canada 3 times in 2007. Check their webpage at http://www.myspace.com/trole for show dates.

I Am The One
Review from Garageband.com: I like the scratchy vocals. This song reminds me of a ride on a roller coaster at the carnival of the damned. It's cool that you set the mood so well. Very well produced and thoughtful work done to set this mood. I like the overtones in the background. The hook is good, though I can't understand the words, you still get the hook across very nicely. Don't change a thing.

Better Get It Right
Review from Garageband.com --- "this is the best song i have ever heard on this site. you guys sound like a mix of rusted root and blind melon, with just a dash of radiohead, some my favorite bands. i really like the melody of this one. backup vocals are really sweet and a perfect accompaniment for the song. it is hard for me to focus on one point of this song because it is amazing all the way through. i would definately like to hear more from you guys."

Just A Girl
Review from Garageband.com: "Groovin Very cool and bass line. The vocals remind me of someone, but I can't quite pin down the influence. Stylistically, I give the vocals high marks...melodically, I think they might be able to expand a bit. I can't fault them too much though, because they do have a cool attitude working overdrive. The groove is definitely killing and all in all it's a pretty decent track. I'm really not sure who you sound like, maybe a livelier more explosive version of Beck

I Can Feel It
Review from Garageband.com: "Wow, I've usddenly discovered a quite interesting record. The words soft, soothing, and funky all describe this track well. Clear production helps this track along but the pure funky vibe is what makes it for me. An excellent track!"

Walkinsong
Review from Garageband.com: "Great musicianship. Everything is right in the pocket. Awesome guitar licks throughout. Great mix. I couldn't say who you sound like, but it rocks. Drums are great, agian, very solid. Vocals kick ass, great voice, not overdone or too theatrical. Rad guitar riffs in the bridge too. I'm impressed."

2007 was an amazing year for the band. They signed an international distribution contract with Vancouver, BC's Flying Saucer Records and re-released their self-titled record complete with new packaging and extras. TROLE toured Canada 3 times in 2007 and will venture out once more on the "Siphoning Gas Tour" in April 2008 before heading into the studio to record the next album. "We're hopeful that L. Stu Young will do the next record at Metalworks in Mississauga but I know he's been so busy working with the likes of Prince and is really in demand."
TROLE will also be releasing a collection of material not used on the new record which is slated for release for April/May 2008. "We write a lot of material that very diverse and so we're releasing it around the same time. It consists of some older material that we never ended up recording and also some new songs that weren't used for the new record. We thought it would be a great way to start introducing our fans to our love of writing diversely."
TROLE have their sights set on the US and Japan for the latter part of 2008.
