Victory Records

Formed in 1989 in suburban Illinois, and making its name early on with landmark hardcore releases from Hatebreed and Earth Crisis, Victory Records quickly defined itself as the definitive independent label for punk, hardcore, emo, metal and alternative with further releases from Taking Back Sunday, Hawthorne Heights, Thursday, Silverstein, A Day to Remember and more. Following Concord’s 2019 acquisition of Victory, Craft Recordings is now proudly managing the legendary indie label’s genre-defining catalog. Craft is working closely with Victory’s artist alumni on a variety of high-quality reissues and special content—all while honoring the label’s 30-year legacy and cultural impact.
