Celebrating its 25th year making punk music, seminal Southern California punk label BYO Records (BetterYouth Organization) has unleashed Let Them Know: The Story Of Youth Brigade And BYO Records. The comprehensive box set includes a 31-track double LP (on red vinyl), a 90 minute documentary on the history and importance of the ground-breaking band Youth Brigade and the BYO label, and a full-color, hardcover bound book containing photos and essays from voices within the SoCal punk community. (The set is also available as a CD/DVD package with booklet, and the music is available at digital retailers as well). In celebration of the release of Let Them Know, Youth Brigade will tour extensively through the fall and into 2010, performing with old friends and labelmates, including a run of dates with The Bouncing Souls. In addition, the documentary will be screened in numerous cities across the country, sometimes coinciding with Youth Brigade shows.
