Victory Records

Victory Records is a Chicago-based privately held corporation founded by Tony Brummel.

Originally focusing on Straight Edge, Hardcore Punk, and emo bands, Victory has more recently concentrated on commercial pop music and has had multiple records exceeding the 200,000 sales mark including three gold certified records, “The Silence in Black and White” by Hawthorne Heights, has now reached platinum status.

Many fans have started to question the credibility of Victory Records since Hawthorne Heights’ lawsuit. It is possible they are not the first to do this as Thursday and Taking Back Sunday are rumoured to have filed lawsuits against the label prior to Hawthorne Heights’ case, and more recently Atreyu released a Greatest Hits compilation simply to release themselves from their contract with Victory.

Also, despite Victory Records founder’s Tony Brummel’s critical statements regarding iTunes (“Apple/iTunes do not care about independent labels or, for that matter, the record industry. Without the music industry, their site and their iPods are useless”), Victory Records bands can be found in the iTunes Music Store.

    A grown man in his 30's saying "Agayu" is the most cringeworthy thing I've seen in a while. Oh, and fuck Victory.

    Victory gets a lot of hate, and I've never dealt with them personally, so I have no opinion on their politics. What I do know, is they have released some pinnacle Hardcore albums from the likes of Madball, Earth Crisis, Strife, Hatebreed, Ringworm, Blood For Blood, BTBAM, and recently signed Terror. I could care less about crybaby horrible bands like A Day To Remember, Taking Back Sunday, or Agayu getting screwed.

    Why did you guys even bother putting up a picture for Endwell? They haven't been on Victory for years, and I'm pretty sure there have been some member changes, so the picture you put up is irrelevant.
