Deathwish Inc.


Deathwish is a brand started by J. Bannon and Tre McCarthy in 2001. Started primarily as an aggressive record label, Deathwish has also branched out into other counterculture oriented businesses. You can find Deathwish involved in Records, Apparel, Fine Arts, and Mixed Martial Arts, among other endeavors.

Deathwish has merged with respected hardcore/punk label Malfunction Records. Malfunction was founded by longtime friends Linas Garsys and Tru Pray. Under their direction since 1999, the label released quality music from many including: Internal Affairs, Ceremony, Cast Aside, Count Me Out, Bitter End, The Hope Conspiracy, Meltdown, XO Skeletons, Piece By Piece, Give Up The Ghost, and more. Together, Deathwish and Malfunction are now one label family. Effective immediately, Deathwish will take over day to day operations of the label. We will continue to operate Malfunction with the same love and dedication that Linas and Tru gave to the label since it's inception. Just as importantly, we show all Malfunction affiliated artists the same dedication and support that we provide to all things Deathwish.
