Sound & Fury

Sound & Fury is the first studio album released by the American punk rock band Youth Brigade. It was released in 1982[2][3] and was followed in 1983 by an album of the same name[4] that included re-recorded versions of some tracks. All of the album's tracks except for "Something's Gonna Change" were released on CD as part of the 1998 compilation album Out of Print. The track "Boys in the Brigade" was featured in the background of the crime drama film The Star Chamber (1983).

Origins and recording[]

Sound & Fury was originally recorded at Mystic Studios in Hollywood, California in July 1982 with engineer Steve Brenner, and mixed by Ira Malek. However during the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour with Social Distortion (as chronicled in the documentary Another State of Mind) in the summer of 1982, which marked their first national tour, Youth Brigade realized that they were disappointed with Sound & Fury and stopped the pressing at only 800 copies, most of which they sold on the tour.[1]

After the end of the Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tour, the band returned home and decided to record a second album titled Sound & Fury, keeping only four tracks from the original version ("Fight to Unite", "The Circle", "You Don't Understand", "Sound & Fury").[1]


The album has been referred to as "a classic".[5] Michael Hidalgo of The Fresno Bee wrote that it "always will be Youth Brigade's best album".[6]
