Art For Blind is an independent record label and distro started in 2004 in Barnsley, before relocating shortly afterwards to nearby Leeds in England.
The first record released was a split 7″ between Leeds’ bands Rays of Helios and Airstrip One. The label has gone on to release over 40 records on vinyl, CD and cassette tape since then working with many a band from our home turf in the North of England but also from the wider worlds of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and USA.
The label has had a number of homes over the years, since 2011, we have called Ireland our home when we moved, to Cork. While here we added a bricks and mortar outlet to our label activities with a physical home for our expanding record and zine distro within the newly established Cork Community PrintShop which we were founding partners of. However we moved once more from there and the label is now based in Sligo, on the Atlantic northwest.
Our records are destributed by Cargo, but we are always looking to deal direct with labels/distros similar to ours so please get in touch if you are interested in our releases.
