BAD PLANNING DROP FIRST TRACK FROM ET FORTES

Chicago’s Bad Planning just dropped the first single from their upcoming debut LP, Et Fortes, available now on your favorite streaming platform and the fine folks over at PunkRockTheory were kind enough to feature a premiere and write up of the band so just smash the link below.

We’ve also launched a PRE-ORDER for Et Fortes that features some of the slickest vinyl we’ve ever had pressed. Slated for a May 6th release, Et Fortes is available on Randomly Mixed color vinyl, Translucent Gold with Black Splatter (Subscription Club only), and audiophile Black and showcases the band’s love of riff heavy hardcore, skate punk, and pop punk; a young band with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. Are these sick or what?

GRAB SOME BAD PLANNING VINYL RIGHT HERE

The newest Jump Start recruits have been writing together since they were freshmen in high school, and now all these years later, the band is still booking their own shows, playing gigs with some of their favorite bands, and making a name for themselves in the Midwest.

The band writes with a sound that will draw comparisons to bands like Neck Deep, but with an obvious heavy slant towards East Coast melodic hardcore like Lifetime or former label contemporaries Crucial Dudes who themselves were heavily influenced by bands like Latterman or early Saves the Day. In 2019 Bad Planning released the split Splitting Hairs alongside Chicago’s A Semester Abroad, bringing a heavier side with singles “Be Brave” and “Actors”.

The four-piece outfit will be keeping busy over the coming weeks and months in support of Et Fortes. Look for a video drop in the coming weeks and more live dates in support of the release.

PRETEND I DON’T EXIST OUT TODAY

Today’s the day! Head on over to your favorite digital service like BandcampiTunes, or Spotify and grab a copy or stream the band’s brand new LP Pretend I Don’t Exist. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of the vinyl, what are you waiting for? Limited White with Evergreen splatter vinyl now shipping as well!

Limited White with Evergreen splatter vinyl is also shipping now as well! Grab a copy over on our Bandcamp or Limited Run webstores! You Vandal takes the best parts of punk and pop-rock and delivers the antithesis; songs full of melodies, and well polished vocals begging you to sing-a-long but with a gruffness and enough riffage to keep them grounded in a scene like Gainesville, Florida’s. This band has more in common with New Found Glory than Hot Water Music, but also manage to stay clear of any cringe-inducing clichés that come along with the pop-punk genre. Their sophomore release I Just Want to Go Back to Hell helped put the band on the map and Pretend I Don’t Exist delivers even more riffage and melody with earnest lyrics and honest delivery.

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-five 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. Being an independent record label is no walk in the park. Times are tough, and being an independent record label in the year 2021 is no different; 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 what you sound like. We didn’t start a label listening to only one style of music, and we hope the releases we’ve done throughout the years is a reflection of that.

Drop us a line.
