Biography

Buffalo, NY is a rusted hull of a city, one subject to endless winters and countless financial set backs. One would think that such a decidedly un-nurturing environment would fail to yield even the slightest crop of creativity, but then, one would be wrong to do so. Amidst the endless nights and fading lights a slight rumble has grown into a mighty roar. Chylde is a band who has set out to fill the void that birthed them with a raucous, unyielding proclamation from a top the rubble heap. Their sound cries, "We are here to celebrate rock and roll, because it is all we have, and it is all that matters!"

From another time, yet completely timeless, Chylde is not some run of the mill retro rock show. These boys don't dial it in, they crank it up and turn it out. Sonorous guitar tones scream and crackle, and then splinter into the deep funk of a rhythm section tighter than the space between tectonic plates. Howling, soulful vocals spurt out like lava and cool into a glassy sheen that reflects the light of the heavens. This is music to move not only and audience's feet, but the the very earth on which they stand.

The Rochester City Paper decrees, "Chylde is relentless in the way (they) pick a riff, gut it, and turn it inside out. The guitar tones were incredible, and the savage drums harkened back to a time when music truly was a mating ritual." Performer Magazine echoes these sentiments, boasting "As unpretentious as it gets-all my favorite parts of gritty, sludgy, pentatonic-riff rock."

Chylde views their music as a release from the chains that drag us all down slowly and surely, and their sole purpose in life is to share their message with as many people as possible, in every way possible. The road never ends for these boys, and that is exactly how they like it.

Lyrics

Stride

Written By: Jon Bobo

your paradise
is a pair of lies
keep a knife under your pillow

you've seen at night
the ones who've died
just keep it all in stride

realize what you need
when you're already dead
keep tossing and turning
to make some sense in your head

woke up dreaming
shaking from the cold
fingers frozen
i should have known

it's in your nature
it's in your very soul
you try to fight
but you're slipping down a hole

realize what you need
when you're already dead
keep tossing and turning
to make some sense in your head
