Prototypical Boston straightedge band DYS have started playing shows again, and will be playing both Sound & Fury in Santa Barbara, CA this July 22nd, and the Gilman Street Project in Berkley, CA on July 23rd.
Later this summer, DYS will be releasing a live album August 9th. The live album was filmed last summer at the Gallery East Reunion, also featuring Jerry’s Kids, Gang Green, The FUs, and New York City’s Antidote. From Lambgoat.com:
Reformed Boston Hardcore band DYS have announced August 9th as the release date for their live release More than Fashion: Live from the Gallery East Reunion on Bridge Nine Records.
DYS is considered an early prototype for the Straight Edge “Youth Crew” bands of the 90’s as well as pioneers of the early melding of Hardcore and Metal into “Crossover.”
