WHAT ARE YOU SUPPORTING?
It's no secret that the music industry is a complete financial fuck storm. It's more difficult than ever for bands and labels to survive off of recorded music. In other countries like Australia, Canada, Denmark, and the Netherlands, government arts grants are available to help artists and creative businesses like ours to survive. Unfortunately the US government isn't so enlightened. So we look to our community for support.
Much like when you contribute to a podcast or your local NPR station, or when you become a member of a local co-op, VIP Membership gives you special perks while also providing us with sustainable income. As a VIP you’ll get access to exclusive limited vinyl, early digital content, concert tickets, and much more.
VIP Members help us to support our amazing artists, and give us the freedom to prioritize art over commerce, so that we don’t have to release some bullshit just because it sells. And in return, our VIPs get access to the most special and limited Joyful Noise releases, while directly supporting our label and artists.
Thank you for being a part of it!

DETAILS ON EVERYTHING THAT IS INCLUDED
VIP-EXCLUSIVE VINYL EDITIONS
You'll have access to limited, hand-numbered vinyl editions of our releases. VIP editions are the most limited versions of our releases, pressed on specialty colored vinyl, often packed with bonus material, and only available to VIP Members.
SPECIAL SITE ACCESS
As a VIP you'll have access to special website content hidden from the public. This includes our ongoing Private Stash (featuring a rotating selection of otherwise-sold-out releases and Test Pressings), and access to digital secrets and advanced streams.
10% OFF ALL PURCHASES
As a VIP you will receive a 10% discount on everything, site-wide (with the exception of box sets). Just enter the discount code "VIP" at checkout, and if you are in fact a VIP Member, you'll magically receive 10% off.
FIRST ACCESS TO ALL NEW RELEASES
As a VIP you will receive advanced notifications of all new releases. We will email you (or text you if you prefer) 12-24 hours before any release is announced to the world. This advanced notice gives you first dibs on limited releases that often sell out quickly. In addition, VIPs are able to stream the entire album before the world even knows it exists.
As a VIP you will receive free downloads of every new release in MP3 and WAV formats on the free downloads page. The only exception will be music that is not released digitally (our Flexi-Disc series, for instance). But if the digital version exists, it's yours. Free of charge.
FREE TICKETS TO SHOWS IN YOUR AREA
Every time one of our bands tours, we offer a handful of tickets to our loyal VIP Members. Tickets are offered based on seniority - the longer you're a member, the more likely you are to get the free tickets.
By becoming a VIP you’ll be supporting our humble, independently run label; empowering us to continue to bring amazing music into the world. VIP funds go to pay for fundamental operating costs so the artists ultimately don't have to chip in for things like utilities, rent, packaging materials, etc. This gives us the freedom to treat our artists fairly, and release meaningful music with less of an eye on financial viability. Your VIP Membership allows us to focus on quality of art over commerce, and we thank you!
CUSTOM-MADE 'ARTISAN' RELEASES
This is the ultra-limited, wild and crazy shit that no one's even thought up yet. They will be small-run super creative release that we'll be cooking up with our pals at PEOPLE IN A POSITION TO KNOW. Ever heard of a six-sided record? Yeah, that's what we're talking about!
VIPs receive cheap, flat-rate shipping on all orders to North America, United Kingdom, or Europe! Price for an LP currently averages $4.50 for US and $14 for UK/EU.
BY SIGNING UP FOR VIP MEMBERSHIP YOU ARE ACCEPTING OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS, IN WHICH YOU AGREE TO REFRAIN FROM ANY DICKISH BEHAVIOR LIKE RESELLING LIMITED RELEASES AT EXORBITANT PRICES. DO NOT SIGN UP IF YOUR INTENTION IS TO FLIP RECORDS.
BY SIGNING UP AS A VIP, YOU WILL BE CHARGED ON A RECURRING MONTHLY BASIS UNLESS YOU PAUSE OR CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
ALSO, THIS IS THE ONE PACKAGE WHERE YOUR 10% VIP DISCOUNT IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE USED. WE HAVE WORKED TO MAKE THIS AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE AS-IS, AND WE ASSURE YOU, NO ONE IS GETTING RICH OFF OF THIS.
