The Label

The Label division of Rue Morgue Records was born in December 2018. Our first seven-inch single for solo artist Dan Brittain (formerly of Shots Fired, Electrik Dynamite, and now fronting Silent Knight) sold out within a week.

Since then, we have released seven-inch vinyl for artists such as the aforementioned Dan Brittan, Subtract-S, Grant Burns, Midnight Alibi, Palace Of The King, Southbound Snake Charmers, Nothing Sacred, Karly Jewell, The Vendettas, Espionage, Riff Raiders, and HZED, with more in the hallowed pipeline.

Our seven-inch vinyl series features beautifully crafted boutique 7″ singles that look as amazing as they sound. We spare no expense in making every release world-class!

We have also released a 10″ EP for Dive Into Ruin, and currently, in the cooker, we have the forthcoming Mushroom Giant release and a 10th anniversary of Witchgrinder’s The Demon Calling album.

Along the way, we have released two compilation albums on vinyl, the highly successful Murders In The Rue Morgue series. Volumes 1 and 2 were released throughout 2021 and 2022, respectively, and we are now putting the finishing touches to Volume 3. We have also begun work on a Punk compilation series entitled Spankmag (don’t ask!) and an all-metal release of our Murders series, which will be Volume 4. All these are scheduled for a 2023 release.

It’s safe to say we know what we are doing, and we proudly work on these records with artists who are dedicated to releasing a quality, limited-edition product to their fanbase. We do not just slap the Rue Morgue Records name on anything. No siree!

Rue Morgue Records The Label is causing quite a stir amongst the local and international scene and is rapidly growing to be a big player in the independent label market.“We’re always looking to improve and grow with every single release we do”, says label head John Raptis.

“The bottom line is to release the absolute best product we can from some incredible unsigned bands that deserve a shot and getting their music out to the masses.”
