Wiretap Records is a Los Angeles based Independent Record Label founded by Rob Castellon (left). We release music we believe in. With over 75+ releases over 6 years so far, we’ve had the pleasure of releasing titles from bands including Spanish Love Songs, Radar State (featuring members of The Get Up Kids/ The Anniversary), The Casket Lottery, Audio Karate, Decent Criminal, The Beautiful Mistake, Tiny Stills, Berwanger, Go Betty Go, Burnt Tapes, Mercy Music, Odd Robot, Kamikaze Girls/Cultdreams, Answering Machine, Gender Roles, Problem Daughter, Lost In Society, and many more.
Our goal is simple. Work alongside our bands to get the most eyes and ears on them as possible. All bands have influences that you can often hear in their music right?... Well so do labels. Just with labels, you see them follow the model and ethics of those that have come before.. like Vagrant Records, Jade Tree, Asian Man, Epitaph, The Militia Group, Crank!, Kung Fu, and SideOneDummy.
In 2018, Oscar Toledo (right) joined the staff to help extend the label's operations. Today, we’re proud Wiretap is still run independently out of Wiretap HQ in Whittier, Ca. As long as we are having fun doing this, we’ll keep doing it. We’re still having fun.. so let’s keep it up. Thank you for your support.
