Youth of Today is a Straight Edge hardcore band from New York City. Formed in 1985 by singer Ray Cappo and guitarist John Porcell, they took the core values of straight edge, no drinking, no smoking and no drugs, incorporated no meat eating and set out to change the world. With anthems like Break Down The Walls, Positive Outlook and Make a Change they influenced people’s lives, and left their mark on music, lifestyle and culture for years to come. At a time when there was no template or real infrastructure, they booked their own tours, started record labels, fanzines and developed merchandise. Recent collaborations with top brands such as Vans, Thrasher, NOAH, Supreme and more, speak volumes to how 35 years later, Youth of Today and the esthetic they created is still a relevant force. The bill includes Take Offense, who'll debut a new record, and Tap and Die.
