OFF WITH THEIR HEADS LIVE LP RELEASE

Like we’ve said before, if you’re not following us on Facebook or Instagram or on our mailing lists you miss announcements like the one for the 12″ vinyl LP release of Live Dec 9th 2017 from Off With Their Heads that we posted two weeks ago. Well, if you missed it, sorry but you’re out of luck. The entire pressing of 500 sold out in less than 13 hours.

So yeah, follow us on the socials, people!

You can still pick up a copy of the digital release right here https://jumpstartrecords.bandcamp.com/album/live-dec-9th-2017

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.

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.
