No New Kinda Story

In early 1993, after watching a handful of hardcore bands in Southern California, Brandon Ebel, son of a preacher from a small town in Oregon, knew he saw something special. He took a loan from his grandfather and with a little cash and even less industry experience he launched one of the most influential independent labels in the last twenty years. From its start, the label seemed destined to fail. Ebel lived on five dollars a day, but his relentless belief in music inspired him to transform Tooth & Nail from an insignificant startup label to a label selling over 20,000,000 records and breaking bands like MxPx, Underoath, August Burns Red and Anberlin. No New Kinda Story is a no-holds-barred, behind the scene look at the rise, fall, and rebirth of the iconic label.

Quick Bio

Tooth & Nail Records is more than a music company to the people who support our bands worldwide and the hard-working staff who consider our offices a second home, their coworkers a second family. What began in a bedroom over a decade ago has grown organically to become the enthusiastic support system behind many of the most important rock bands operating, including Underoath, Emery, Hawk Nelson, Thousand Foot Krutch and The Almost. With headquarters in Seattle and offices in Nashville, Tennessee and elsewhere, Tooth & Nail Records is also the parent company to Solid State Records (Demon Hunter, Haste The Day) and BEC Recordings (Jeremy Camp, Kutless).
