Announcing Hippies Are Dead Records

Dear Friends,

For the past three years Hippies Are Dead has provided surfers of the world wide interwebs with daily insight into some of the best music, both live and recorded, that the world has to offer. Through a strong focus on photo journalism, the blog has tracked the musical events all over the US, with offices based in New York and San Francisco. Now the time has come for Hippies Are Dead to enter a new era of creativity and music creation.

Today we are pleased to announce the formation of Hippies Are Dead Records. The new label, formed by the editorial staff of Hippies Are Dead, will be host to musicians who embody the musical ideals that have come to define Hippies Are Dead. We will aim to release records that we truly love, and in doing so we hope to gain your faith in the albums we put forth. Sometimes we will challenge you, sometimes we'll make things easy for you. But, rest assured, we will always put forth music of the utmost quality and more importantly, music that holds true meaning for us.

Undoubtedly, in these tumultuous economic times. it's questionable to be starting a record label . As we always have, we have faith in rock and roll, and we know you do too. We're confident that this venture, no matter how financially risky, will succeed in its true goal: to bring amazing music, created by amazing people, to the masses. It promises to be a very interesting and exciting ride, and we hope you'll join us.
