Never mind the year of the rat!!! 2009 is the year of the Godfather of New York Hardcore, Vinnie Stigma. With New York Blood running through his veins, he’s available to tell you stories of a New York you’ve only heard of.

Originally a European independent music company, I Scream Records released albums by hardcore and punk bands. In the label’s humble beginnings it was fueled by only a few thousand dollars and Laurens Kusters’ passion and belief in the lifestyle and the power of music. Over the last 14 years, I Scream Records has grown into one of the leading European independent labels. I Scream Records has built an impressive catalogue with releases from bands like Madball, Ramallah, Inhuman, Agnostic Front, Discipline, Deathkiller, MOD, Vision, Slapshot, Guajiro, The Unseen, Stars & Stripes and Backfire and compilations such as The Worldwide Tribute To The Real Oi, to name a few. In early 2006 I Scream Records started its American operations and has since started to make its mark in the States as one of the most diverse independents recently inking a deal with distribution partner Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA).
