Epidemic Records is a label and online store based in Brescia (Italy).
The embryo of the project was conceived somewhere around 2003 and 2004, but the first activities as a small label began in 2005.
Deeply rooted into the hardcore punk scene, with an eye for all alternative music, we grew up believing in DIY (Do It Yourself) as a funding ethic behind our work.
Respect, trust and the desire to build something together are funding principles for us. All this still represents the core of Epidemic Records after all these years.
Bands with something to say, whether it is a personal reflection on the world or a political statement, will always find an ally in Epidemic Records. Communication is crucial, especially for punk rock and hardcore. Ideas, reflections, feelings, messages, critical thinking. This is what we like.
Epidemic Records slogan is pretty clear: “This Is More Than Music. This Is What We Believe In.”
We are antifascist and we are against any kind of racism, sexism and homo-transphobia. We don’t want these forms of discrimination to be part of the world we live in.
Last, but not least, Epidemic Records encourages a lifestyle respectful to animals, environment and all the people that are hungry in the world: Veganism.
