Teenage Disco Bloodbath Records Bio:
Hunter S. Thompson is thought to once have said “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.”. On the other end of the spectrum, Will Killingsworth from Clean Plate Records states on his web site, “If you want something sleek, professional, and glossy you are going to have to look elsewhere. There are no pretensions here, just a stupid label with some stupid records. If I were you, I’d find this honesty refreshing.” I’d like to think that our philosophies on running a label exist somewhere near the fine line that separates Hunter Thompson’s experiences in the corporate music industry and Will’s refreshingly “who gives a shit” DIY attitude.
TDB Records has been active since 2003 when Jonah Livingston (Backstabbers Inc., Ramming Speed) dropped out of the music industry program at Northeastern University. Growing from humble aspirations, TDB has become an internationally rostered, solidly distributed, full time project based in Boston, MA. The label has taken on the goals of not only releasing passionate and intense Metal and Hardcore music, but also keeping political, social, and environmental concerns a priority. We make every attempt to work with companies that have positive environmental practices, work with local artists, do benefit events, and generally pull our weight.
Though we aren’t interested in helping anyone play giant Clear Channel venues or getting CD’s into corporate music chains, If we can expose people to awesome bands and expose bands to awesome people then we’re happy with where our time and effort is going. We appreciate your support and please get in touch if you’d like to talk about our records, music, or just life in general.
