Featuring the likes of Frank Iero and We Are The Ocean, this is pretty special.
Hassle Records are celebrating their 15th birthday in style.
The label have announced the details of '15 x 15', a hand picked collection of 15 albums from across their lifespan to showcase the wide array of amazing music they have put out over the years.
Here's a bit of explanation from the label:
"2020 marks 15 years of Hassle Records. So, we wanted to celebrate. It only seems like yesterday that we had to change the label's name (for bullshit legal reasons) and start again. But we got off to a great start putting out the Juliette Lewis EP ‘...Like A Bolt Of Lightning ‘ as the first release. And it’s been a great musical journey ever since. Never wanting be constrained by a ‘genre sound’, we work with artists and music that we simply love, and from there we just hope that other people will also love the records that we put out. This ethos has been the ultimate foundation in the label's history from the start.
"To that end, for our 15th anniversary we have decided to re-issue 15 records from varying parts of our history and catalogue, all as limited vinyl-only releases. Hopefully our choices accurately represent what a diverse sound we have to the label, and that the passion we have for the music and the bands shines through."
The first five of those records have been revealed now and they are...
Juliette and the Licks '...Like A Bolt Of Lightning
Casey 'Love Is Not Enough'
frnkiero andthe cellabration 'stomachaches'
Tubelord 'Our First American Friends'
We Are The Ocean 'Cutting Our Teeth'
All 15 of the records will be released on October 30. Keep your eye out for the other ten in the coming months.
