About Insidious

Insidious Industries is an independent record label based out of Buffalo, New York.

The concept for the label began around 2011 with the official launch coming nearly 6 years later in 2017.

The story begins in late 2012, when the label pressed its first release by Buffalo ska-core band Do It With Malice. The record, a 7-inch entitled “The Big Ska Gamble”, was co-released by Grandpa’s Casino Recordings as part of “The Big Ska Gamble” 7-Inch subscription series. Next, the label was involved in the re-release of legendary 3rd-wave ska act The Toasters’ most celebrated album, “Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down”. This was done through round 1 of the 3rd Wave Ska Preservation Society Reissue Project. Several years later Insidious added a second piece to their catalog. In 2015, they released “Rising”, the first full-length from Buffalo-based punk quartet, ORENTHAL.

Since the official launch, the label has re-released both of Do It With Malice full-length CD’s and has been working on expanding and adding a variety of Ska and Punk to the Distro segment.
