This Week in Posivibes: Iron Lung Records


The Seattle-based label has been putting out some incredible punk records lately, most recently the much-anticipated Positive Energy LP from East Berlin’s Diät.

Founded by the band Iron Lung, which has been playing and making records in the West Coast hardcore punk scene since 1999, Iron Lung Records is true to its catchphrase: “We Know What We Like and What We Don’t Like.” In the spirit of that kind of dignified cut-the-bullshit attitude, the label has put out a list of bands that, simply in that way that is incredibly difficult to achieve, make great punk music.

The label has put out two widely acclaimed records by the Australian band Total Control, and early this season released the debut LP for Flesh World, a project featuring members of Limp Wrist, Brilliant Colors, and Needles.

Listen to the songs off the label’s full list via the Iron Lung Records bandcamp, and support the label by buying direct off their site.
