The label releases heavy metal and hardcore bands, some of which are straight edge. Among the label's better-known signings were Set Your Goals[3] and New Found Glory.[1] The first band signed to Eulogy Recordings in April 1997 was Bird of Ill Omen, which featured several members of Wylie's band Morning Again in its line-up.[4] In 1999, Ian Rowan became a partner in Eulogy Recordings and later Hand of Hope Records. Eulogy's sister label is Hand of Hope. It has signed All In and Every New Day. The record label Goodbye Blue Skies has released albums for bands signed to Eulogy.

Eulogy has had exclusive distribution deals with both Good Life Recordings and Alveran Records for European distribution and is currently[when?] distributed internationally by RED Music. On December 10, 2018 it was announced that Eulogy will be merged into the Stay Sick Recordings, a record label founded by Attila frontman, Chris Fronzak. With the acquisition, Eulogy Recordings moved its headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia.
