With a sound that encompasses equal amounts hardcore, skate punk, and pop-punk, Bad Planning is a band that truly does things their own way. The newest recruits of Jump Start Records have been writing together since they were freshmen in high school. Now all these years later, the band is still booking their own shows, playing gigs with some of their favorite bands, and making a name for themselves in the midwest. Bad Planning writes with a sound that runs in the same vein as their fellow Chicago-based influences such as Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms. In 2019 they released “Splitting Hairs” alongside Chicago band A Semester Abroad, bringing on a heavier side with singles “Be Brave” and “Actors”. The four-piece, consisting of Alex Crook, Jack Coombs, Kevin Levonyak and Laurence Bactat, teamed up with Jump Start Records in May 2021 sharing a strong DIY ethos and love for punk rock. The band looks to continue playing shows in and outside of their local scene, developing their sound for future releases.

DEBUT RECORD OUT IN 2024!
Burn Rebuild is a punk rock band from Chicago started by guitarist Brian Hampson and lead singer/bassist, Franky Tsoukalas. In 2013, the guys started up to relieve the stress of college while they both pursued degrees in their 30’s at UIC. The main goal of the band is to play and write as much as adult life allows. Though the band has had many…many member changes, all members that have come and gone in Burn Rebuild have always been friends of the band. Now with a solidified lineup and their EP Losing Grip, the guys are looking to bring their take on punk to the streets of Chicago. They’re not touring. They have kids and dogs and shit…and it probably just isn’t in the cards. However, come out to a show in Illinois and go check out their ep at www.burnrebuild.bandcamp.com
