Hopeless Records, a Southern California independent record label home to All Time Low, The Used, Yellowcard, Bayside, Taking Back Sunday and more, was founded with a certain vision: to make a positive impact and spread social awareness by connecting music, fans and great causes. That is why our team has worked to raise over 2 million dollars for over 50 non-profits through our registered 501c3 organization, Sub City, which you can learn more about by visiting subcity.net.

By purchasing the awesome one-of-a-kind perks found on this page that our generous artists and friends in the music business have donated such as autographed instruments, exclusive meet-and-greet experiences, rare test pressings and posters, and one-on-one writing and recording sessions, you will not only be claiming a unique opportunity to connect deeper with us, our bands, and our friends, but you will be helping us to achieve the goals of our next project: building a recording studio where young people, who are passionate about music, can learn how to play instruments, record, engineer, produce, and mix music, as well as learn how to sell, distribute and market music. The studio will be located in our hometown of the San Fernando Valley and offer a safe and encouraging place after school and during school breaks for our youth; acting as an alternative to turning towards gangs, drugs and violence. 

We have been working with an amazing organization called New Directions for Youth that provides direct services and programs to at-risk youth and families throughout the San Fernando Valley and in the greater Los Angeles area. Since its founding in 1976, NDY has provided services – free of charge – to more than 90,000 individuals. Learn more about them at NDFY.org. This studio will be a part of their brand new facility opening in 2014. We have already directly funded much of the construction through Sub City and now we need you to help us make this a reality! We still need this $15,000 + to cover the costs of instruments, studio equipment, and employing a site supervisor, engineer/producer, and a teacher to provide lessons.

Please check out the great perks we have listed and help us get this done! Also, if you see the package you hoped to claim has sold out, be sure to check back as we will be adding more great perks along the way!
