Biography

Crippled Youth got moving. While most kids their age were trying to talk their parents into letting them go see Kiss at MSG (if that), the four Katonah youths were making their way up and down the northeast United States, and assembling their own K-Town Mosh Crew. With playing out and continuous song writing came a transformation away from Crippled Youth, a name Matt remembers just sounding 'too punk,' to that which would soon become recognized as that of BOLD - a name change they found more appropriate and a better reflection of ...

Crippled Youth got moving. While most kids their age were trying to talk their parents into letting them go see Kiss at MSG (if that), the four Katonah youths were making their way up and down the northeast United States, and assembling their own K-Town Mosh Crew. With playing out and continuous song writing came a transformation away from Crippled Youth, a name Matt remembers just sounding 'too punk,' to that which would soon become recognized as that of BOLD - a name change they found more appropriate and a better reflection of no-punches-pulled songs like 'Nailed to the X,' 'Still Strong,' and 'Always Try.' They weren't little kids much longer...

Embraced and absorbed by the booming NYC Hardcore scene, BOLD quickly found themselves alongside the likes of Straight Ahead, Underdog, Warzone, Supertouch, Side By Side, Gorilla Biscuits, Sick Of It All, and of course, Youth Of Today, by the time 1987 rolled around. Not only were they growing up physically, BOLD's sound was evolving with a harder, denser, and even more convincing mix of straight edge hardcore tracks that would end up comprising the 'Speak Out' twelve inch LP. Recorded throughout 1987 at upstate NY's Electric Reels Studios (the home of the Underdog EP and YOT's 'Break Down The Walls,' which Drew played drums on), Speak Out was a work in progress that took never-ending weekend trips by the band to complete. Though originally slated for a late 1987 release on Orange County, California's Wishingwell Records, dissatisfaction with the OC label's continuous delays and prioritizing led to a shift in plans. The growing surge of then-Connecticut based Revelation Records along with some sweet talk from owners Jordan Cooper and Ray Cappo resulted in the decision to make 'Speak Out' Revelation release number nine.
