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.
The kind folks over at New Noise Magazine are premiering the brand new video from You Vandal for the track “Collapse”. Head on over to http://newnoisemagazine.com/vandal-collapse-video/ and check it out!
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.
