Top Ten Unsigned Bands Poll



Rise Above The Anchor is hosting a “Top Ten Unsigned Bands” poll, where you can vote for your favorite band and help them win a spot on the label (Drop A of course!). All you need to do is head on over to their website via the link below and click vote, it’s super simple and very helpful.

Future of Drop A Records


In early 2013 Drop A Records boomed bigger than we could of ever imagined and it was great, it was so great I don’t know the word for it. Bands and partners just kept flooding our e-mails and the Facebook page, constantly and the Likes, yeah, they sky rocketed as well. Enter late 2013 and everything fell apart and came to halt, so this post is to clear the air of what happened and what’s going to happen with the label.

Our Roster

Two of our bands have left, Cruelty In The Garden‘s contract was up and they decided not to renew with Drop A and In Dying Moments thought it was in their best interest to move on from the label. We have no hard feelings with either bands and will continue to support them the best we can.

That leaves Caitlyn Can Wait, the boys are on hiatus at the time of this posting but with such talent, we’ll make sure they have everything they need when they are ready to come back.

We are always looking for fresh talent, if you like what you see then feel free to contact us.

The Relaunch

The end of 2013 was riddled personal issues that didn’t allow time to be focused on the label and as a result it was put wrongfully on the side.

If you couldn’t tell already, we’ve already started the relaunch of the label with a bang. A brand new logo courtesy of the talented M. Starkey (if you need something done you should shoot him a message).  In 2014, we are starting the year off by getting everything together and in order to accomplish what we need to in the coming year and future.

Our Goal

Our goal remains the same, to help cultivate the music scene and provide support and knowledge to all the bands who need it. We are going to do our best to give to the community as well as a bunch of other really neat surprises. Expect a lot of merch, music, and just general awesomeness from us in the very near future.

Hope that clears up everything, take care and thanks for reading!
