2020: The Year of the Rat

Well, 2020 hasn’t really gone as planned, to say the least. We had hoped to get back to being a lot more productive around these parts, but between our own personal health issues, Covid, and then the chaotic (and much needed) street protests in support of Black Lives Matter, 2020 hasn’t gone necessarily to (our) plan. But that’s okay, we’ll all be better off because of it.

In the meantime, if you haven’t been following us on Instagram or Facebook, we highly suggest you do that. Last month we launched a $20 Vinyl Mystery Box that included some great Jump Start Records titles from the likes of MxPx, Horace Pinker, Noise By Numbers, Belvedere, Kill Lincoln, Astpai, Goddamnit, One Win Choice, Red Tape Parade, Laureate, and You Vandal just to name a few. If you missed out on that, be sure to start following us now. We’re working on another crazy Vinyl Mystery Box that we know you’ll want to get in on.

In the meantime, support you friends, love your family, and be kind to each other.

ALL EYES WEST ‘LIKE LIGTHNING’ OUT 08/30

So, we’ve been long overdue for any sort of update or announcements, and there’s good reason for that. We’ll get you caught up to speed on that soon enough. In the meantime, let’s get things back into gear with a new release, shall we?

Jump Start is stoked to announce the latest and much overdue (as well) full-length effort from our favorite Chicago sons, All Eyes West. Light Lightning is the band’s first full-length effort since 2015’s Doomer, and we’re stoked to be releasing it on LP, CD, and of course, digitally. You can stream the first track from the record, “As I Bleed”, right here.
