Hello lovely people!
The weather is here, wish we were beautiful. We're busy as always, but this time we actually have something new to keep us off the streets and into business. Excited? Read on then!
First of all, congratulations to the Groezrock team for a wonderful edition this year. All of us at Lost Youth had some of the best times in a while, and we all saw incredible bands play at various times of day, various stages and various states of mind. Go figure, heh.
Meanwhile our releases are getting some love on- and offline. Read all about it here, here, here, here, here, and probably some other places. We're glad to hear people dig the new Sunpower "Last Rites" EP, The Dutch Rudders "On Verra" full length and the Top Bunk "Top Bunk" debut EP. We are truly excited.
As if that wasn't enough, we are organising another show! On July 18th, in De Witte Non in Hasselt, we will be hosting our good friends and one of our favourite current bands, Great Cynics! They'll be bringing along Sundials and Haters for a continental tour. You should definitely swing by. Write it down in your agenda, and rsvp on Facebook!
On a related note, we started working on the line-up for next year's Crossbonefest, for real. We're contacting bands as we type, so if you have any requests, shoot 'em our way. We can't promise anything, but if we like your suggestion, who knows what will happen!? It'll be our tenth anniversary so we're gonna put some damn effort in this one.
And finally, we've saved the biggest news for last. Hopefully you have read all the way through so you don't miss this, cause it is important that you know that we are releasing the new Underground Railroad To Candyland album on tape here in Europe! The album is called The People Are Home, contains 13 tracks and is roughly 30 minutes long. It will be available through us on a beautiful looking cassette tape with a download code! It is a co-release with Recess Records, and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of it.
The Underground Railroad To Candyland is a San Pedro, CA based punk/garage/fun band and one of the brain child's of songwriter Todd Congeliere. They've released two acclaimed full lengths, Knows Your Sins and Bird Roughs, and are a genuinely amusing and entertaining live band as well.

I know we're excited, but what are you?
