HistoryEdit

Priests created the label in 2012[1] in order to release their first single, the "Radiation/Personal Planes" 7-inch.[2] The second release was a cassette of the New York feminist punk band Shady Hawkins' 2013 album Dead To Me.[1]

The members of Priests run the label out of their houses and apartments.[3]

The label is interested in offering a platform to artists who might not have another way to get their music out. In an interview with the Washington City Paper, Daniele Daniele said: "We're interested in finding people who are underrepresented or weren't signed, making something weird enough where there might not be a normal outlet for it."[1]

RosterEdit

Sister Polygon has released music by Priests, Neonates, Shady Hawkins, Carni Klirs, Young Trynas, Dudes, Downtown Boys, Pinkwash, Sneaks, Gauche, Hothead, Snail Mail, and Post Pink.
