Death Punk Records is a Michigan Record Label that puts bands and fans first. We created this label as a means to help out bands that had otherwise been brushed aside in an overcrowded market. In an era of fads and gimmicks, we give a voice to those talented bands that have been looked over. The name “Death Punk” started as an inside joke between label owners Trevor Thelen, Doug Fox and Matthew Brinningstaul, but the meaning is simple; An end, or ”death“ to the status quo in the punk/alternative scene. It’s time for a resurgence of talent, and we’re here to make it happen. Death Punk is more than a record label, it’s a movement for bands and fans everywhere. Death Punk was born not out of want, but necessity; A necessity for talent to take center stage once more. Death Punk Records is one of Michigan’s top independent record labels. We hope you’re on board now, because 2018 is going to be a hell of a ride.
