We’re super excited to announce the premiere of the title track from Laureate’s latest LP, Landmarks, over at The Bad Copy. Thanks to the folks over at 360 Digital for their help with this project!
We’ve been a lil’ quiet around these parts the last few weeks, but Kevin’s coming out of his Springtime allergy haze and things are starting to pickup. Be sure to check out the awesome Laureate lyric video for the track Landmarks done by our good friend Sean Quilty which premiered over at Modern Vinyl this week!

How we got here.
Jump Start Records was born in a college dorm room first as a paper mailorder catalog and zine that quickly evolved into a vinyl 7″ release with Montreal’s The Planet Smashers. Twenty years and over 100 releases later, we’re still here, for better or for worse, fighting the good fight.
Where we’re going.
While the focus and drive of the label has shifted greatly over the years, one thing has stayed true and that’s a personal connection with the music and a desire to work with our friends releasing music that we love. Times are tough, and being an independent record label in the year 2017 isn’t easy; getting people to pay attention to a small record label run out of a suburban Philadelphia basement is no easy task, but we hope you enjoy what you find as much as we enjoy introducing the world to bands and music we think they ought to know.
Still punk as fuck.
We don’t give a fuck what bands you’ve played with, who you recorded with, or how many followers you have on social media. If we like it, we like it, and there’s not much else to say. It doesn’t matter if it’s punk, hardcore, ska, soul, hip-hop, or jazz, when the record needle hits you know it when you hear it.
Drop us a line.
