We are a D.I.Y. record label Baltimore, MD.
Run by one dude, going ten plus years strong.
Imagine having a local record store owned by a dude whom asides
from having impeccable taste in music, keeps weird hours because
he has kids, a day job and a million other things to take care of….
AND still runs the baddest label around.
That’s A389. I appreciate you all very much and want to forewarn
you that I don’t always reply to emails ten seconds later and I
commit to getting to the warehouse once a week at least on Sundays
to ship orders out on Mondays on my lunch break.
But rest assured patience is key.
Everything that needs to get done will get done.
It has been for over a decade.

E-MAIL WORKS BEST
I don’t care who you’ve shared the stage with, or what bands you used to be in. Tell me what your band is called, what it’s influenced by, what you want to accomplish, and send a simple BANDCAMP link to your page.
If you really feel the need to send physical submissions for your band, be my guest. Same rule applies, I can’t promise a response but I will definitely check it out. If you want to bribe me into giving you a guaranteed response you may submit any of the following with your package:
– Hawaiian Shirts (Size M)
– Atari 2600 Cartridges
– Old issues of Fangoria
– Any offerings related to KISS (circa 1973-1984), Roy Wood’s WIZZARD or the almighty E.L.O.
PS: Unintentionally funny band promo photos are always encouraged.
