Hopeless Records


An independent punk rock label located in Van Nuys (Los Angeles) California. The label was started in 1993 out of a 10 by 10 room. By reading a book called "How to Run an Independent Record Label" they figured out how to release a 7 inch vinyl record. Now, the label runs from a 3000 square foot warehouse and has new releases almost every month.
