Equal Vision Records is a record label based in Albany, New York.

Equal Vision Records was founded in the early 1990s by Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter, Better Than a Thousand).
In the beginning the label existed solely to distribute Shelter releases, but after label manager Steve Reddy bought EVR from Cappo in 1992, the focus was expanded and a wider variety of bands were brought on board.

The mid-to-late ’90s saw a redoubling of the Equal Vision’s hardcore efforts with such signings as Refused, One King Down, Ten Yard Fight, and Floorpunch. By the end of the ’90s EVR found itself with an impressive stable of hardcore and punk bands, having added Bane, Trial, Converge and Saves the Day to its roster in the latter part of the decade.

    I don't like everything this label has released, but I give props to it for being so (well, relatively) varied.
