Welcome to GGT Records: a label run by two guys who met as bandmates in Virginia Beach and went their separate ways, only to reunite 17 years later in Seattle and discover they both had the same passion for good music they had in the late 1990s. We decided to start this label during Covid-19, when we heard an old friend's new band and couldn't resist the temptation to try to get their music in front of as many people as possible.
This is a DIY label (see: our website), headquartered in a basement and at a kitchen table. What we hope to build is a label dedicated to releasing top-notch hardcore without regard to trends, without allegiance to a particular look or subgenre.
Our first release, Mean Jesus's Noble Ambitions 7" got delayed at the pressing plant due to a crush of new vinyl coming out this summer. We'll have that out in early Fall. That means our "second" release, forgive/forget's 1998 EP, Leave With What You Came For, will be coming out first. (These are strange days, indeed.) We are releasing this record on July 28, to coincide with the band's appearance on the Where it Went podcast. There will be a special red variant available over at Revelation Records. This first pressing is limited to 500 (150 red, 150 blue/white swirl, and 200 blue).
Things have come together relatively quickly for our small label. Stay tuned and check us on Instagram, as we have plenty more in store for you this Fall.
