Bio[Edit this profile]
Roy are :
With ex-members from Botch or Harkonen one might be expecting a font for sonic aggression from such post-hardcore luminaries. But to the contrary, Roy's neo- classic American rock/pop songwriting style is truly more timeless than the changing flavors of the underground
Roy is the perfect metaphor for a band that believes in traditions but acknowledges the natural and inevitable evolution of culture. Acoustic guitar and folky songwriting are paired with layers of fuzzed-out bass and delayed guitar. The stripped down rhythm section finds itself battling a throbbing drum-machine. The down-to-earth lyrics are steeped in themes that harken back to the days of Woody Guthrie, yet are full of references to the current issues that plague us.
They have released two albums Big City Sin and Small Town Redemption ( 2004 ) and Roy Killed John Train ( 2006 ).
