Thank you for visiting New School Records on the web. We are an independent rock/punk record label located in Oregon City, Oregon. We formed the company in early 1998, with a simple mission to help bands get their music heard by a new audience. We work with bands of the "punk" genre; Be it pop punk to hardcore punk - We don't care! If we like the music and the individuals that make the band, we'll work with them.
In early 2000, we really kicked things off - Investing a countless number of hours and a large sum of money into getting educated with the knowledge we needed to successfully manage the company. We have built strong relationships with many other record labels, distributors and retailers worldwide and have their full support.
New School Records is most known for its, "Shut The Punk Up!" compilation series, featuring many popular acts, including NOFX, Strung Out, Yellowcard, Good Riddance, Thrice, The Bouncing Souls, Pulley, Voodoo Glow Skulls and many more. We also have a popular label sampler titled, "Punk Off!", which features album and unreleased tracks by all our current artists.
Please take a look around, listen to some music, watch some music videos and let us know if you have any questions or comments. Please support our us and our bands by purchasing their music and adding them to your paylists/favorites. Thank you for your interest in New School Records!
