New Music: Pennywise/BYO Records

While this particular section of the blog is usually reserved for newer emerging artists, I felt like it was possible that Brian, my high school pal Casey, and others, might show up to kick my ass if I didn't post this.

LA punk label BYO Records is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with the release of Let Them Know: The Story of Youth Brigade and BYO Records.  The release includes a 31-track compilation of songs from the extensive BYO catalog, performed by NoFX, Bouncing Souls, Pennywise, Nothington, Leatherface and many more.


Pennywise contribute a version of "We're Gonna Fight" to the comp, a tune that was originally recorded by 7 Seconds.

Pennywise - We're Gonna Fight

Also included is a documentary on BYO and Youth Brigade's involvement in the early LA punk scene, directed by Jeff Alulis (Do You Remember? 15 Years of the Bouncing Souls, NOFX Backstage Passport).

Check out the trailer:

Let Them Know will be available September 22 as a box set containing a colored vinyl double LP, the film and a hardcover, full-color book.  It will also be available on CD (DVD included) and digitally.

The documentary is premiering in LA and will be screening across North America this fall.  The Stern brothers, who created BYO, are also founding members of Youth Brigade and will be touring this fall.
