The Bicycle Music Company and its affiliates are pleased to announce the acquisition of Nitro Records out of Huntington Beach, CA.
Nitro Records, a seminal punk rock record label, is home to classic punk rock recordings from bands such as The Offspring, The Vandals, The Damned, TSOL and AFI. Started in 1994 by Dexter Holland, the label became an incubator for some of the most revered and respected punk rock bands of the 1990’s and 2000’s. The roster also includes albums by The Aquabats, A Wilhelm Scream, and Exene Cervenka and the Original Sinners.
“Starting and running Nitro Records has been an amazing experience. I have made some of the best friends of my life at this label and I've had the privilege to put out records by my favorite bands. It's a music catalog that I'm insanely proud of! I know Bicycle will carry on Nitro's legacy and ensure its recordings are well taken care of and available to fans for years to come,” said Nitro’s founder and owner Dexter Holland.
“Bicycle acquires and represents important master recording rights across all genres. We look forward to demonstrating our commitment to Nitro Records and its roster of artists,” said Steven Salm, Bicycle Music’s Co-President.
