UPDATE 8/12/15

The RAT TOWN RECORDS Retail Store is now Closed. I've decided to take the Label and Mailorder back in the Garage. The Store was an awesome experience and definitely worth the time and effort. I turned alot of people on to a TON of Awesome Punk and Hardcore. I also met alot of people that returned the favor. My Record Collection has gotten larger and so has my need to spend more time with Kids, Family and Friends. Working 2 Jobs has worn me out! Thanks to everyone who supported the Store and RAT TOWN RECORDS.

RAT TOWN RECORDS is Still going strong with new releases, restocks and T-Shirts in the Online Store. I will continue to set up at shows when possible and will Always SUPPORT MY LOCAL SCENE!

The Rat Town Story...

Rat Town Records started in a small one room apartment in 1992 as a source to help release, promote and distribute records for local punk/hardcore bands. The DIY ethics of the label/distro will remain the driving force behind keeping Rat Town alive. The underground punk/hardcore movement for the lack of a better word has always relied on its own labels/bands/zines etc. to keep going. Rat Town is proud to be a part of this movement. The recent years have produced most of the releases on the label, and the distro catalog has doubled in size in the last year alone. With the addition of this web-site to help with promotion and distribution, the label will be taking steps towards reaching a broader range of people around the world. We are dedicated to keeping the prices as low as possible. If you don't see anything you want, get in touch, chances are we can get what you are looking for.

Cheers, Dan

 

Beware of The Trade Rip-Offs
