UPDATE - December 19th, 2019

As you can see in the picture we have a massive room of shirts at our physical location. We have finally found the spare time to get these all inventoried and listed on the website. There are nearly 500 shirts posted and all are categorized by size now! Check out the webstore as these are all one-offs and once they're gone, they're gone.

Sorry for the lack of News Updates. I'm sure you've noticed that the store inventory has been getting updated more now than ever though.


The store and venue continue to do well and takes up a lot of time. The punk and alternative and pop punk and black metal and death metal and beard metal and nu-metal and vinyl and shirt sections have finally caught up with the hardcore and metalcore inventories you know us for.


The shirts and records honestly go so quick in the store that I don't bother posting them to this webstore which is probably why you have noticed those sections dwindling in recent memory. The store, however, is fully stocked with hundreds of shirts and thousands of records. Swing on down to the brick and mortar spot to check those out.


In the meantime, we have posted all of the leftover Facewreck shirts from their This Is Hardtour run. Check that along with the new EP, Sortin Fools Out which is only $5 for an entire Discography release!

UPDATE - April 26th, 2019

Hi. We've been extremely busy with the opening of the store. Things are going great thus far. We've had everyone in the age range of probably 12 to probably 62 swinging by. It's been really cool running into people I haven't seen in years, meeting people who have been going to shows since the 80s that I've somehow never crossed paths with and people from the area who just want to support something cool coming into town.


The webstore took a bit of a backseat while the store was getting up and running but these next few weeks will be focused on adding a LOT of new inventory. Probably only 1/3 of what is available in the store is available on this webstore. Expect to not only see many additions to the punk and metal sections but also to the hardcore and metalcore as I recently bought out several collections of a few hundred discs a piece.

In case you haven't heard by now we signed the lease on a building which is going to house not only a retail location for the store but also a concert venue and hardcore museum.

Check out our new website at www.preservinghardcore.com for all the info you could need.


Keep an eye on our social media sites for updates on the progress. Saturday, April 13th is going to be our Grand Opening Celebration for Record Store Day.

Had a great weekend down in Louisville at LDB Fest where I was set up for the second year alongside other great labels like Unbeaten Records. Cleared out a lot of merch in general but especially shirts ... which gave me room to pull out some more. This entire bin is overflowing with shirts and are now available on the store.

I also grabbed copies of some of my favorite younger bands out there today. You can also find all of these on the webstore. Heading out to Milwaukee next weekend with Too Pure To Die for the Wings Of Scarlet, Forever Is Forgotten, Once For All. With stops in Columbus, Indianapolis and Chicago along the way you can expect a lot of new products in the following weeks!
