RIP The Original Pit Studio
Last week, Taylor Young and his wife Kylla were unexpectedly given 60-days notice to vacate their home/studio of 17+ years, AKA The Pit.
Taylor and The Pit have been a pivotal part of California’s entire hardcore/punk/metal ecosystem, recording and mixing bands such as Drain, Militarie Gun, Mindforce, Sunami, Rotting Out, Twitching Tongues, God’s Hate, Suicide Silence and many more.
He has been consistently recording/housing hardcore, punk and metal bands from all over the world since 2011, and now they will have to find and rebuild a new space from scratch, losing all income until a new space is complete.
They were adamantly against the idea of a GoFundMe, but after personally witnessing the community come together during times of crisis and how beautiful it can be, I have decided to make this on their behalf. Every single cent donated will be entirely invested in rebuilding The Pit’s new studio location and every single donor will play a vital role in every new piece of music that comes out of studio as long as it exists.
Long live the pit.
