We’ve had this 7″ in the works all Summer and we’re happy to finally offer it up for pre-order. Limited to 500 copies, this 7″ is their demo mastered and cut at 45 RPM. 200 copies were pressed on purple vinyl and 300 were pressed on black. Grab one now or regret it in a few short months once everyone has realized what a powerhouse this band is. This is your heads up.

Baltimore’s Sacred Love, featuring members of Mindset, Brick and Praise, formed in November of 2009 and quickly recorded an incredible demo in February. They cite the Bad Brains, Cro-Mags and the early Dischord roster as influences and we also hear a bit of Burn and Beyond in their music. Sacred Love continue to write at a lightning fast pace and we will be announcing details regarding their follow up to the “S/T” 7″ next week. Stay tuned.


Police & Thieves had been demo-ing throughout the year in an effort to get the new material absolutely dialed before entering the legendary Inner Ear Studios to record their 12″ EP due out soon on Youngblood. One such session took place during the Blizzard Of 2010 and we liked the resulting recording so much that we decided to release it. We’re proud to bring you this session released on the proper format for all demos: the cassette.

The Police & Thieves “Blizzard Sessions ’10” demo has been pressed up on pro-printed chrome audio cassettes and is strictly limited to 100 copies. Our once-abandoned imprint, Youngblood Vaults, has been resurrected to release this and possibly more upcoming demo cassettes.

“Blizzard Sessions ‘10” is a preview of what’s to come with Police & Thieves new 12” EP. Which, by the way, has been recorded and is currently in the mixing process!


In addition to the Sacred Love and Police & Thieves stuff, we are also taking orders for the final pressing of the Fired Up “When The Lights Go Out” 7″. This version is on purple vinyl with a limited cover and is numbered out of 110 copies.

Youngblood Welcomes Sacred Love

If you follow our label then you know that we only release a few records per year and it’s not very often that we get to announce a new band on Youngblood.

Sacred Love is a brand new band hailing from Baltimore, MD and we’re very excited to announce that we will be releasing their debut 7″ EP this summer. Sacred Love, featuring members of Mindset (Baltimore’s Third Hardest Band), Brick and Praise, formed in November of 2009 and quickly recorded an incredible demo in February, 2010. Ever since Ev from Sacred Love sent us the demo back in February, it’s been in constant rotation here at YBHQ.


Sacred Love cite the Bad Brains, Cro-Mags and the early Dischord roster as influences. We also hear a bit of Burn and Beyond in their music. Take a listen and judge for yourself: Youngblood Myspace

With only a few shows and a damn impressive demo under their belts, Sacred Love are just getting started. We’re so excited about this band that we’re releasing a one-time pressing of their demo on vinyl as a precursor to their debut EP. Look for this limited 7″ to be out Mid-July.

Things are moving fast for Sacred Love and they already have enough new material to record their debut 7″ EP for Youngblood. Look for a release date of late Summer.
