Fearless Records is very excited to announce a creative partnership with acclaimed rock music label, Razor & Tie. Under the new venture, New York-based Razor & Tie will operate as an imprint of Fearless Records.

“We are thrilled to bring Razor & Tie into the Fearless fold,” says Bob Becker, Fearless Records President. “The label brings with it its own legacy within the hard rock world, and we’re excited to apply our creative marketing and digital strategy to the legacy the brand has already created. Alongside Fearless’ roster, we’re proud to be bringing new energy into rock, helping usher in a new era for the genre.”

Fully acquired by Concord Music from Razor & Tie founders Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam earlier this year, the label’s roster includes The Pretty RecklessRed Sun RisingThe Sword, and All That Remains, among many more. In April 2018, Fearless Records officially announced the signing of cinematic rock band, Starset, formerly of Razor & Tie, to the label.

The goal of the new partnership will be to increase Fearless’ reach and footprint, as well as apply the creative marketing synonymous with Fearless into new areas of the rock genre with Razor & Tie.
