Griffin Taylor20 year old son of NOOSE and ACID STONE singer Corey Taylorspoke to new york heavy about his live approach with his band SOLD. SOLDThe range of is completed by Simon Crahan (son of NOOSE percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan) to the battery, Connor Grodzicki on rhythm guitar, Jeremiah Pugh on bass and Cole Espeland on lead guitar.
Griffin said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “Our goal is not to be on stage and be, ‘Look at us. We’re so cool. We’re so that.’ Our goal is to entertain you; our goal is to make you feel better. Because everyone feels like shit these days. And it’s kind of nice to have someone get hurt on stage screaming. and wake up the next morning with back problems and then you go home and you’re like, ‘You know what? It was a really nice experience. I can see where these guys are coming from.’ And if you didn’t enjoy our shows, that’s fine. There were shows where I went where I was just, like, ‘Oh, not my cup of tea.’ And it’s entirely your choice to not like our music, because, honestly, it just makes us try harder and it makes us take steps to, not change ourselves. then as much as it’s almost unrecognizable, but changing us to the point where it’s just, like, maybe we can do it again and maybe we can try again.”
At the end of last year, SOLD released a duo of singles (“Asylum” and “Burn My Misery”) before his first five-track EP, “What is it / Kill it”, which arrived at DSPs in November. The collection was recorded with Landa Griffin of THE ACACIA STRAIN.

In July, SOLD releases a new single, “Ded to Me”before its very first European dates.
Formed February 2018 in Des Moines, Iowa, SOLD features a furiously heavy sound built on the foundations laid by the rhythm section’s speed, power and precision, layered with ferocious guitars, soul crushing solos and guttural yet melodic vocals that depict hardship and harsh realities of life.
SOLD had their first mainstream exposure in 2020 when they performed as part of Knotfest.comit’s virtual “Pulse of the Maggots” festival.
SOLD played their first headlining show in March 2020 at the iconic local club Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines, Iowa.
