Well, we had some problems with the website. Main problem: capitalism and the corporate machine. Secondary problem: our lack of IT knowledge.
But we're mostly back on track now! Lost Youth Records is still fully operational. Here's an overview of what is going on.
Firstly, we released the Reproach "Despair/Shittown" tapes in November and they've been well-received. Hopefully you already own a copy of the limited tape run, otherwise they're still available through us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through our webstore (here!). The EP will also be released in Japan on Crew For Life Records (tomorrow!), in Europe on Awesome Vision records and Crapoulet Records, and in the US on Deep Six Records, soon!
Read what Out Of Step fanzine thinks!
Secondly, we will be re-releasing the last Apers album, "Confetti On The Floor", on nice limited yellow tapes at Crossbonefest. They're headlining the tenth edition of our festival on Friday, what better way to celebrate than to put out their opus magnum on a long-forgotten format?! The album is already a classic though, with songs such as Always Hate Work, Jamie Oliver and of course To The Bar For Cocktails.
Thirdly, as mentioned, the tenth edition of our annual party Crossbonefest is only ONE MONTH AWAY, 18 and 19 March. The website crossbonefest.lostyouthrecords.be is still under construction but should be launched VERY SOON, so you will be able to find all the info on there. Until then, a quick rundown:

- FUN FACTS
Equal Idiots is super famous now. Muncie Girls will have their first full length out by then. Fuck Ups will release their new record at the festival. The Bat Bites will play their final Belgian show (not really a fun fact, actually). The Real Danger is not breaking up. The best Misfits cover band will perform: The Shitfits. Check out local Limburg acts as Steele Justice, Customized, Reproach and Lifespite. Sass Dragons and Weekend Dads will have new records out.
There you have most of the info. More will be announced in the next few weeks, for now, I suggest you get your tickets, listen to the bands, dance in your living room and drink Cara Pils forever. See you in a month!!
