Lost Music Collective formation

Vinnie Fiorello (Less Than Jake, Fueled By Ramen, Sailor Diggen’s Finest CBD, Paper + Plastick) and Erick Droegmoeller (Word Is Bond, Inc.) have joined forces to form Lost Music Collective, a new record label emphasizing pop punk with a DIY spirit. The label will oficially launch with the release of Useless Hands by Rival Town, on Friday Oct. 4. 

In addition to the album from Rival Town, Lost Music Collective have plans to release Yearbooks, Goalkeeper, and Chase Your Words -- all highlighted in this Spotify label sampler.

“It's been great to connect with bands and people who share the same goals and work endlessly to achieve those goals. Lost Music Collective was an idea that started with a phone call from Erick, and together we slowly have been building a roster of bands we both believe in," Fiorello says of the label.
