We Put Out Records started as the grounds for The Syndicate to release a CD from a band they were friends with who had no record label at the time. The Syndicate started out as a radio promotion company but soon branched out into street marketing and artist management. Now they are one of the biggest marketing companies around. The management side works with Shadows Fall, Thursday (both Top 20 acts), Murder By Death and Stretch Arm Strong. Staying true to the original idea and name, WPO released a couple records, (three to be exact) before going dormant for a few years. After years of assisting other labels in marketing their artists, The Syndicate decided to see out a distribution partner and re-start the label again. Upon striking a deal with the Warner Music Group to work with ADA and East West, We Put Out Records was born again as a full time label with a dedicated staff. Once the announcement was made, Stretch Arm Strong singer, Chris McLane, called up the management department and demanded that the next Stretch record come out on WPO. âThe Syndicate has always been there to support us over the years. We want to be the first band on your label!.â A couple months later, Stretch Arm Strong went into the studio to record the first release for the revamped WPO Records, Free At Last. What started out as a fun experiment and bed room record label, evolved into something far beyond the dreams and visions of The Syndicate. They are now committed in making We Put Out the best record label out there. Though they are backed by one of the largest companies in the world and take their work very seriously, the staff at WPO still has some of that laid back attitude, they still just put out records they dig, plain and simple.
