City Slang: Bored Youth returns

Old school Detroit punks Bored Youth are back with a new album and, according to them, a new sound.

Jon Katz of the band says, “Bored Youth was one of the original punk/hardcore bands of the Detroit/Midwest scene of the early 80's. Due to a couple of things that happened we broke up. Now there's been renewed interest because of books like Tony Rettman's "Why Be Something That You're Not?" and the release of the Touch and Go mags. All this inspired us to record some new tracks, which I'd characterize as ‘post-punk power pop emo rock by some old fucks who should really know better’.”
