Run for Cover Records got its start in 2004 between the walls of a New England dorm room. Out of a passion for local punk and hardcore music backboned by DIY ethos and aspirations for an all-inclusive community, the company has since evolved into an eclectic indie rock label crossing genres, scenes and geographies. Ten years since the labels inception Run For Cover no longer lives out of owner Jeff Casazzas’ apartment, but instead houses an entire team inside of its Boston headquarters.
This label is the product of common interests connected by wide-range discovery and a wholehearted commitment to establishing young artists from the ground up. While purist ambitions have led way to cracking the Billboard charts and being humbled by critical praise, Run for Cover gets its biggest endorsements in its role as the bridge between new bands and listeners.
