Youth Of Today @ Bound By Honour 10

It’s been almost three (3) decades since Youth Of Today hits the streets of New York to spread the word of hardcore, youth crew style! We all know Ray Cappo the musician slash guru slash spiritualist slash vegan slash – this guy is just talented! He is also known as front man of several bands like Better Than A Thousand, Reflex From Pain and my personal favorite Shelter. Youth Of Today’s Sound is way different from Shelter – is a Krishnacore band a mash up of Krishna consciousness and melodic hardcore and also promotes straightedge and vegan lifestyle. Seeing YOT at the first time is like being a kid again, Ray Cappo is like a spiritual messenger. I see in his eyes the love he gives to the crowd and the fans. He is a big fan of the fans. Everyone just loves the guy. He even did a hand stand requested by the audience showing how game he was. Speaking of audience, the crowd is just awesome! They (including me) love all the tunes YOT played, sing-song with them and mosh with them – good times! Coincidentally the same day is Singapore Youth Day – Youth Of Today on Youth Day! Hmm catchy. This is the 10th edition of the Bound By Honour created by Reconstrux Booking (Singapore). This show is like a mini Southeast Asian Hardcore Fest. Bands from Thailand’s Monument X and Philippines’ Piledriver came to celebrate this event also the Lion City favorites straight edge hardcore – Straight Forward and growing legend Overthrown shared the stage with YOT. Ten awesome hardcore events and we expect more!!!
