About Us

KNIFE HITS RECORDS is an independent punk music label.

Founded in 2004 as an off-shoot of the sludge punk band FIGHT AMPUTATION, the label was originally coined a collective due to it’s on-again-off-again habit of releasing various formats, it’s communal nature of various entities chipping in to release music, and it’s existence as a show/tour promoter from time to time.

In the last few years, KNIFE HITS has settled into mostly short-run cassette and split releases and has acted as a home-base for the new defunct FIGHT AMP, as well as it’s more current offshoot LOW DOSE.

With 2019 upon us, KNIFE HITS is now gearing up for some new and full cross-format releases for the first time in years, starting with the LOW DOSE debut LP set to release March 29th.
