It’s hard to believe November is here already! We’ve managed to stay busy with some new releases since the last update. Passport Vol.5 – The Wanna-bes/Mugwumps split 7” is out now on 3 different colors of vinyl. Each is limited to 100 copies! We also a reissue from the Vapids, New Wave Humour is available on black or crystal clear vinyl. If that’s not enough how about the debut demo from Ghost Party on a nice handnumbered cd that’s limited to just 100 copies. Last and certainly not least we have a killer cd compilation from the SUCK. All the SUCK and more Vol.1 is out now and features both of their out of print full lengths as a classic jewel case cd.

We’re one month out from Mom’s Basement Fest and we’re already working on next years show. This time it’ll be 2 days at Westside Bowl in Youngstown, Ohio. Mom’s Basement Fest is proudly partnered up with The Ragpicker Merch again for it this year. More details on that as we go. Lastly, we’re hard at work on the 2022 Mom’s Basement X-mas Party! You can look for that on YouTube sometime around the holiday. More details on that next month!

Thanks everyone for all of the support, it means alot to us. We’re around 7 years in and rapidly approaching 100 releases! Without all of your support, we would never had made it this far. If you’re so inclined, feel free to share our social media pages and YouTube channel. That definitely helps for our releases to reach more people. You could also ask your local record stores to carry our releases via Traffic Entertainment!

August/September/October 2022


Wow! Time has REALLY gotten away from us over here at Mom’s Basement Records! Between work and renovations, I’ve completely lost track of time and updates on this website. Throughout all of the chaos, we’ve still managed to release plenty of bangers and stay incredibly busy here at the label. Over the past 3 months we’ve released a slew of releases.

AVEM – Three Birds Stoned Lp/Cd
Smelters – Burnin’ Dirt Lp/Cd
Mcrackins – L.A.M.P. Lathe Cut 7”
JERK! – Panic Attack Cd (3rd Pressing)
Lillingtons Tribute Cd/Cassette
Rotores – Punk Rock Fever Cd
Yodees – Comic Books Cd
Punk Rock Raduno Vol.5 Lp
Practice Run – First Draft

We’ve also updated the webstore with all of your favorite international releases from all of your favorite labels! As far as upcoming releases go, we have Passport Vol.5 coming in October, the SUCK – All the SUCK and More Vol.1 and the S/T Ghost Party demos on Cd. We’re also expecting full lengths from Greendales (S/T Riverdales Cover album) and a new masterpiece by the Young Hasselhoffs – Life Got In The Way Lp with Rum Bar records handling the CD!

Beyond that is the debut full length from The Phase Problem, Relationship Sneakers by Goin’ Places, a fun reissue from the Jason’s, and tons more. We’re racing quickly towards the 100 release mark which is kinda hard to believe.

Mom’s Basement Fest 2022 was this past weekend and it was one hell of a party! 11 bands (plus 2 surprise bands) absolutely killed at Westside Bowl in Youngstown, Ohio! We’ve already booked the venue for 2 days next year in the first week of October so mark your calendars! It’s gonna be a scorcher.

Thanks everyone for all of the support and stay tuned for tons of great releases, we’ve started working on our X-Mas Party 2022 program as well. This one will be our best one yet!

Wow! June really got away from us! We’ve had tons of things going on over here which is probably what made me forget Junes update.. yeah probably… anyway, here’s a two for one special titled June/July. For starters, we released a few things in June and threw up a few preorders. Released in June and available now in the MBR webstore is JERK! – Welcome To Sleepaway Camp 7” (available on Black or Opaque Red Vinyl) Proton Packs/Zoanoids Split 7” on Translucent Green Vinyl (Red is available through our buds at Hey Pizza Records and Both are available through I Buy Records! We also released the Cd version of the Ricky Rochelle Full length “So Far, So Good”. We also did preorders for new full lengths from Stinking Polecats and Ratbones, both bands are titans over in the Italian punk rock scene.

Coming this month (July) we have the proper release of Ratbones and Stinking Polecats, both are available on 2 different colors of vinyl as well as on Cd. On top of that we have a double dose of killer Brazilian punk rock from Rotores and the Yodees! We’ll also see the debut release from Nevadas own teenage sensation “The Lunkheads”. If that’s not enough, we also received some intel that the AVEM Lps are ready at the Canadian pressing plant. You can expect that soon. 

Punk Rock Raduno is right around the corner and we’ll be sponsoring it again, so we’ll have some of the Lp comps available after the festival. Be sure to catch our own Beatnik Termites, Stinking Polecats, Giant Eagles and the Yodees playing the Raduno this year! If all of that isn’t enough you can rest easy knowing that we still have several aces up our sleeves to close out this year. Also while we’re here, We would love to see everyone at Mom’s Basement Fest in Youngstown, Ohio on October 1st at Westside Bowl! There’s 11 killer bands on the bill. Tickets will be available soon through the venue so keep your eyes peeled for those.

We’re starting to begin work on the annual Mom’s Basement Christmas Party. If you know any bands who want to submit something or any bands who you’d love to see on there, reach out and let us know!

Cheers and beers!
