BYO Records News For March

“Let Them Know: The Story of Youth Brigade and BYO” teaser posted!
Finally an update on the long anticipated BYO DVD! We screened it for the folks that attended our 10th Annual Punk Rock Bowling Tournament, so for those of you who were not able to be there, here’s a sneak peek of the movie!

The movie will be released this summer as part of a box set that will include the full length dvd, a multi disc compilation, and hardcover book. The idea behind the compilation was to approach bands from the punk rock community to cover a tune from the extensive BYO catalog. The feedback has been great! We’re all excited with the awesome lineup of bands that are confirmed, some you know and some you won’t believe you don’t already know. All the tracks will be exclusive recordings and to name a few of the bands already on board . . . Bouncing Souls, Dropkick Murphy’s, Youth Brigade, Leatherface, CH3, Filthy Thieving Bastards, Nothington, The Briefs, Wednesday Night Heroes, Shark Soup, plus many more.

A full track listing of all the bands involved will be released in the coming weeks.
