“We started doing the Wiretap comps in 2014 as a way to help promote the bands on our roster, but also sort of test the waters on bands we were hoping to work with down the line. I still actively listen to some of the samplers/comps I received in the late 90’s/00’s and like many, learned about so many new bands from them. If you don’t find at least 5 bands on here that you get excited about… there’s something seriously wrong. Bands in all genres of punk, indie, rock, ska, post/punk, emo, etc are doing some exciting things today.”
