Youngblood Welcomes DC’s True Head
We are thrilled to welcome DC’s True Head to Youngblood Records!
What initially started as a studio project in early 2012 between Ahron Reinhard (Lion of Judah) and Israel Soriano (The First Step) has grown into a fully-formed band.
Forlorn and powerful, True Head exhibits a restrained yet energetic approach. Their music sounds just like a late August afternoon at the 1328 Newton Street House. Warm and hazy from the summer days passed, awaiting the changes around the bend.
The debut release for True Head will be an eponymous 6 song 12″ EP masterfully recorded by the legendary Don Zientara of Inner Ear Studios. Due out early 2013, we will have a special pre-press, ltd to 50 copies, available at Youngblood Showcase 2012.
Listen to “Bad Baby” from the 12″ EP:
“Behind your eyes
And beneath disguise
Where your true head lies”
Holy shit I just realized I haven’t done a news update since December, 2011! We have some new releases in the works so check back soon. 2nd Press of No Tolerance “No Remorse, No Tolerance” 7″ coming next month.
Update: Pre-Orders Sold Out!
Thanks for the overwhelming support and we’re sorry if you didn’t get a chance to order. REVHQ is putting up their copies of our new releases Friday, Dec 9th (today).
YOUNGBLOOD MEGA PRE-ORDER NOW
After 8 months of painstaking preparation, over-thinking and all of the usual delays which have become standard for Youngblood, we are proud to finally present our Fall 2011 releases. Although these records have been floating around at shows for a few months, all four are officially out 12/13/11 and we are taking pre-orders NOW.
Our distributor, REVHQ will start taking orders this Friday and will begin shipping immediately. We here at YBHQ will be filling all orders over the week between Christmas and New Years.
YOUNGBLOOD BANDCAMP LAUNCHED
We’ve had a Bandcamp in the works since September and we are excited to finally launch it. Big thanks to Richmond’s own Sykes for doing an awesome job with it.
The idea for our Bandcamp is to serve as a steady, permanent place to stream our music. Right now we have the 2011 releases up and will be adding all of our back catalog little by little. Check it out and spread the word!
Stream all four records on our Bandcamp here.
A TON OF STUFF IN THE WEBSTORE
In addition to the records below we have also put in the store the Final Pressing of Justice “Escapades” LP, a bunch of new shirts, two sick silk-screened posters, some smaller packages and one really crazy package.
YB-37: Face Reality “s/t”
Detroit’s Own Face Reality return with their second EP and debut for Youngblood Records. Face Reality cite Warzone, Turning Point, Youth Of Today and Mouthpiece as influences and they’ve been steadily working towards becoming the Straight Edge powerhouse that they are now.
YB-38: Give “Flower Head”
Give return with another incredible offering in their series of singles. Along with this record, Give have released singles with Deranged, React!, Triple B and Painkiller Records. We are proud to be among the labels to bring you Give.
YB-34: Police & Thieves “Fracturing”
Washington, D.C.’s Police & Thieves are back with seven new songs of fast melodic hardcore combining influences from their hometown with elements of post punk. Having just as much in common with Dag Nasty and Marginal Man as well as later era Seaweed and Samiam.
