Ryan Massey launches Lugosi Records, re-issues American Steel

Posted Aug. 16, 2012, 10:35 a.m. in Labels by Loren

American Steel and Communique member and Sharkbite Studios owner Ryan Massey has announced that he'll be starting his own label, Lugosi Records. The label will debut with an August 24, 2012 release show at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, CA headlined by American Steel and also featuring The Reckless Kind (also featuring Massey). The label will be jointly releasing the debut from The Reckless Kind, Golden Age Thinking, and American Steel is re-issuing Rogue's March, originally released on Lookout! Records.


States Massey:



Lugosi Records is an idea that has floated around for years, and was finally made a reality when Lookout Records saw fit to disband, returning all rights to master recordings back to the artists. We are fortunate that a number of labels friendly to our cause (such as it is) would have been happy to re-release the old Amsteel and Communiqué albums for us. But I have always wanted to have a venue for putting out records by bands that I really enjoy. So, distribution was secured, funding scoured for, and now we find ourselves in business (such as it is)... In some cases, remastering and repackaging may be necessary as some of the original materials have been lost. We will also be putting out a handful of new releases a year.
