    Fearless Records have announced a partnership with Razor & Tie. The press release can be found below.

    Fearless Records is very excited to announce a creative partnership with acclaimed rock music label, Razor & Tie. Under the new venture, New York-based Razor & Tie will operate as an imprint of Fearless Records.
    “We are thrilled to bring Razor & Tie into the Fearless fold,” says Bob Becker, Fearless Records President. “The label brings with it its own legacy within the hard rock world, and we’re excited to apply our creative marketing and digital strategy to the legacy the brand has already created. Alongside Fearless’ roster, we’re proud to be bringing new energy into rock, helping usher in a new era for the genre.”

    Fully acquired by Concord Music from Razor & Tie founders Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam earlier this year, the label’s roster includes The Pretty Reckless, Red Sun Rising, The Sword, and All That Remains, among many more. In April 2018, Fearless Records officially announced the signing of cinematic rock band, Starset, formerly of Razor & Tie, to the label. While some artists will remain under the Razor & Tie imprint, the partnership will allow the Fearless Records team to expand and utilize their ever-growing brand to bring bigger opportunities for more artists while upholding the legacy of Razor & Tie.

    The goal of the new partnership will be to increase Fearless’ reach and footprint, as well as apply the creative marketing synonymous with Fearless into new areas of the rock genre with Razor & Tie.

    In April, Fearless Records unleashed Underoath’s highly-anticipated return album, Erase Me, which debuted at #4 on Billboard Top Album Sales chart following an acclaimed creative marketing campaign. Other highly-anticipated releases this year include Plain White T’s, Real Friends, Ice Nine Kills and I Prevail.

    Is this 2005 calling? I haven't heard anyone getting hyped over new Plain White T's music.

    right on! Prestigious

    Idk, but the single "Land of the Living" the band released last year was far better than anything I expected from them, and it does have me curious to hear what else they've got in store.

  7. I know a band that left the label because they were under the impression that the label was calling it quits.

    Isn't that why INK are in such a shit position today? They could've been as big as August Burns Red, but I'm pretty sure that shirt rubbed a lot of industry people the wrong way. They're still headlining dive bars a decade later.
