Sacred Bones Records was born in Brooklyn, New York in early 2007, with the intention of bringing their friends’ music to light, as well as unearthing music lost in time. With releases from the likes of Zola Jesus, The Men and Moon Duo of late, Sacred Bones look to release artists whom they truly believe in both aurally and spiritually.
Sacred Bones has a co-operative of gifted people working with them: a filmmaker who directs the music videos, a print maker who handles the production of the complicated packaging and a graphic designer who is responsible for the album layouts, website and one-sheets. The label prides themselves on putting as much energy and care into the presentation of their records as each band does to their music.
