When It's Alive Records started in 2004 we wanted to put out
records by bands we knew and loved. We did just that for the first year and
a half, releasing a handful of EPs by some of our favorites. Right
around that time, we got hit up by a guy we didn't know, in a band we had
never heard or even heard of. Reason being, they never released anything at
that point. We were asked if we'd be interested in releasing their debut EP.
That EP ended up being our fifth release and first ever by The Varisty
Weirdos. We never thought we would become a label people in bands would
actually seek to be on. It just never occurred to us. Varsity Weirdos were
big fans of all we had released up that point and in turn we became huge
fans of their tunes. These guys have always had so much right going on for
them - tight jams with super catchy hooks every time. Another thing I have
always loved in a band is when it has multiple lead singers each with a
significantly different song writing style and sound than the others.
Varsity Weirdos got that going on for them, too.
