Youth Brigade return to Europe after 7 years!
Youth Brigade will be hitting the road in November to take their highly acclaimed movie "Let Them Know: The Story of Youth Brigade and BYO Records" to Europe. A 32 date tour will feature the band playing all their hits, new and old as well as select cities that will be screening the 25 year Anniversary documentary film in conjunction with the shows.

The movie will be shown with German and Spanish subtitles and the limited edition box set will be available for purchase at the shows.

Don't miss out, here's what the critics have to say:

"Itís a superb set, a testament to both the labelís never-say-die attitude and West Coast punkís enduring power overall." -OC Weekly

"Let Them Know ups the ante by providing what might be the definitive label history book. If any label out there is contemplating doing a retrospective in the future, BYO has the template for what must be done." - KC Pitch Weekly

"Punk would not be without BYO Records and Youth Brigade. Books and films have been written and filmed on the scene, but to hear it from the mouths of those who lived it and in many ways fostered it; that's the difference between the "primary" and "secondary" sources you heard about in high school. It's quite the package." -Aquarian Weekly

"I could go on forever listing the highlights, because it's pretty much all gold, in what is an incredibly well-crafted, informative and honest sounding collection of thoughts, flashbacks and sound-bites from a time that I would have loved to have experienced." - Keep It Fast.com

"Their contribution and influence on the world of punk rock back in the early 1980s canít be denied and the scene wouldnít have been nearly as good if the Stern brothers never found punk rock."

"For any music historian, I would highly recommend watching Let Them Know." -Punkbands.com

"if youíre not considering buying this box set, thereís going to be an emptiness in your music collection, thus making the rest of your collection worthless without it." -Verbicide

"Every facet of the Southern California punk scene is accurately and magnificently represented. If youíre looking to reminisce the LA punk of yore, wanting to see where the scene is headed, in the need for a crash course, or looking for good music, BYO delivers. Happy Anniversary indeed." -Eleven Magazine -Punkvinyl.com
