There absolutely is honor amongst thieves. Those so-called “good guys” are savages, but we Villains have each others back.

Villains is a very small record label, run out of a one car garage in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, CA. We don’t have a lot of money or connections or whatever else it is that you’re supposed to have, but we do have each other and a lot of ambition. Most everything we do is handmade. We dub our own tapes, screen print shirts, CD packaging, stickers and poster and make buttons, and figure out how to do anything else we need. Homegrown as an heirloom tomato.

Some Villains are literally blood related, but all of us are family. We’ve spent years playing in bands together, going to each others shows, each others BBQs, weddings. A lot of us have known each other since childhood. That’s not to say everyone in the Villains family were kids together, some of them we met along the way, but it’s safe to say that we’re all thick as thieves and we all want to see each other take our projects as far as we can. Villains is our way to do that.
