Overground Records releases punk rock, anarcho punk, proto punk and other interesting reissues, and the occasional new release by bands we've previously reissued.
Overground Records started in 1988 inspired to reissue a few punk rock classics. The first few releases were limited edition vinyl pressings, but with the advent of compact discs we started manufacturing CDs because we could include up to 74 minutes of music, making them better value. Much of the catalogue is also available for download.
Out now is the fantastic new Goldblade album 'The Terror of Modern Life' on LP/CD. It's been getting amazing reviews Reviews Page
