Search and Rescue Records was originally established in 2002 with goal of taking accomplished local bands and helping them take their music to the next level through relentless touring and underground promotion. We've succeeded to that extent in that 50% of our bands we have signed in the past have eventually gone on to sign deals with several considerably larger Indie Labels. We ARE the missing link between local talent and national success. Members of our family include Chiodos, Bensin, The Sophomore Year, The Swellers, Greyfield and Fifteen Minutes Fast. We have also released limited edition 7" Vinyl from Mae (Tooth and Nail). We are currently distributed world wide by the Lumberjack Mordam Music Group. We are ALWAYS looking to sign bands in the indie, punk, hardcore, pop, ska and emo genres or anything else inbetween. We are non-judgemental when it comes to music. We believe that ALL music that is both creative and honest deserves to be heard. As musical taste is in the eye of the beholder, we believe there is no such thing as a "bad" genre of music. Musical "xenophobia" is lame and immature. That said, we only work with music we fall in love with and are willing to stand behind personally. If you are interested in sending us music, please send us a promo kit to the address above or email us with links to your Myspace or Purevolume page. We listen to EVERY promo kit we get without exception and MOST links we get. We are pretty much only interested in bands that are ready to tour full time and have the ability to follow through. Prior touring experiance is a HUGE plus and puts you way ahead of the pack, but at the end of the day the music has to be the number one priority. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
