David has announced an end to the much loved and adored Christian punk rock label, Thumper Punk Records. He started it as a music site in 2008 and we all watched it grow as a record label the past 10 years. Him and his label will be sorely missed but we commend him for wanting to devote more time to his family. It’s tough in this scene and I know exactly how he feel coming from my perspective. With my experience the past 18 years I can tell you honestly that I have thrown in the towel a few times, wanted to a few more times, and have been battling personal doubts about my work even more times. It isn’t easy managing full time work, family, and trying to keep expenses under control. We all do it out of love for the scene and deeply feel drawn towards sharing our piece of hope with a crowd that isn’t so welcoming these days. That’s the point though, to share in times of darkness, doubt, and disbelief. Anyway, I thank David for the years of support, the years of awesome underground punk rock music with a real message, and for giving these bands a platform when so many others in the “industry” look the other way for more desirable returns on their investments. We all know that’s not the purpose and David is real proof that risk taking is more important than safety. JCHC for life! Read the full statement below and a little teaser by me.
