Facedown Records

Facedown Records Bio:

Facedown Records is an independent Christian record label based in Fallbrook, California, devoted mostly to hardcore punk and metalcore bands (Christian and secular). Founded by No Innocent Victim drummer Jason Dunn, the label started off small with a number of 7" record releases by bands such as Overcome, Dodgin Bullets, and Born Blind. As the label grew, it was able to sign artists for full album deals. xDisciplex and The Deal, who were both popular in the Christian and secular scenes, released material on Facedown, as well as Canada's Figure Four, One-21, and Point of Recognition. The label also signs straight edge groups such as xDEATHSTARx and xLooking Forwardx.

Bands like Seventh Star and Nodes of Ranvier released well-received records through the label, but it was the release of "Turn It Around" by Comeback Kid (featuring members of Figure Four) that really brought the label more notice.[citation needed] Comeback Kid toured behind that album for the following 2 years, eventually leaving Facedown to sign with Victory Records.

Take It Back!, War Of Ages, For Today, Sleeping Giant, the reformed No Innocent Victim, and many others make up the self-described "Facedown Family".
