Black Bolt

Boise, ID

Black Bolt is a four-piece punk band from Boise, formed in the summer of 2011. During their over-ten year tenure, they've played many houses, basements, parks, campgrounds, bars, dive bars, and all ages spaces. They once even played a large venue that provided a fully catered meal. That was a one-time thing, though. Kind of a fluke. But rest assured that Black Bolt has never left a drink ticket behind. Black Bolt's musical style contains elements of Reagan-era punk, $5 CD compilation-era punk, sleazy garage rock, and driving indie rock. They believe that the political is personal and the personal is political-- they make political anthems for party people and party hymns for idealogues. Black Bolt's newest album, 'The North End,' was released earlier this year. Clocking in at eight full tracks and almost 21 whole minutes, it showcases their absolute devotion to keeping things sporadic, short, and sweet.
