Tooth & Nail Records

About:

Tooth & Nail Records is a Seattle-based independent record label that has been around for over a decade, with close to 200 releases to their credit [as well as numerous imprint labels, the most well known of which being Solid State Records]. Tooth & Nail is best known for being the launching pad for such massively popular bands as MxPx, Further Seems Forever, The Juliana Theory, and P.O.D., as well as the breeding ground for groups that have gone onto other labels such as Slick Shoes, Stavesacre, Frodus, and Squad Five-O.

Much controversy revolves around Tooth & Nail's roster, with the brunt of the issues focusing on the bands' religious preferences. While many bands on the Tooth & Nail roster may contain members who are Christian, Tooth & Nail as an entity has never claimed to be a strictly "Christian" label. As religion has always been a hotly contested issue within punk rock, many of these groups have become - for lack of a better term - "martyred" by fans.
