Let us help you discover your new favourite band, save money on our releases (and perhaps give you something exclusive too), and support musicians in a fair deal with our 2021 membership.
For The Rabbits have called us “increasingly crucial”, Joyzine said we are “a trusted source of consistently excellent new music”, while Cambridge Music Review said we’re, “fast becoming a haven for bold, fun, original and constantly challenging musicians”.
And now we’re offering you the chance to find your new favourite band by taking out a label membership and getting all our releases in the year.
“having been a member of many vinyl clubs over the years I’ve finally found one that’s a perfect fit. Great progressive label, incredible new bands, and cheap as chips” – RY 2020 member
How our membership works
- You choose your tier – vinyl, CD or digital – and pay a one-off shipping fee
- Each quarter in 2021 we’ll send you our latest physical releases or you can access our digital vault any time
- You can check in to our private members community for chat, updates, and exclusives from our artists giving you the choice to enjoy our releases on your own, or as part of a community
- We’ll use subscription money toward the cost of our releases – and crucially this isn’t a cost we’ll be trying to recover through sales before paying our artists
- Sit back, and relax while listening to the best music around, knowing your subscription is helping independent artists keep creative control of their work and keep making music in difficult times.
“superb value for money and a great roster of artists” – RY 2020 member
What membership includes
Whichever subscription tier you choose you’ll get:
- all our 2021 releases
- one flat postage fee covers you for the whole year wherever you are in the world
- releases much cheaper than buying individually on general release
- vinyl members get the most limited / exclusive colour vinyl
- a lossless digital version of all 2021 releases – get access as soon as you join (releases added from 1 January 2021)
- discounts on back catalogue and new releases
- discounts on Reckless Yes merch
- private members group to get all the latest news and access to our releases – control your notification so you know when there’s something new without the need to check-in all the time
- and the knowledge you’re directly supporting independent artists.
“labels like Reckless Yes need to be supported and this is such a great way of doing it” – RY 2020 member
Our 2021 release schedule
In 2021 we’ll be bringing you:
- the fourth album from Nervous Twitch on vinyl, CD and digital
- new releases from Japan Review, Eilis Frawley, and Grawl!x
- and music from a whole host of new signings we’re yet to announce.
As 2020 showed us things can change at any time but we have a full schedule with 6 vinyl / CD album releases, and a further 5 album or EP releases with a format yet to be fixed.
This means if you take out a vinyl membership you’re saving £55 compared to buying those records on release – and you’re helping them even get made while doing so!
If you’re wondering what 2020 members received – wonder no more!
“I see so much good stuff in here and some ready for an anticipatory first listen. There’s no question as to whether I will be resubscribing to @TheRecklessYes membership for 2021″ – RY 2020 member
What it means to our artists
We’ve always offered a fairer-than-average deal to our artists and membership means we can improve on this year on year. Your subs offset the cost of releases and as we don’t seek to recover that money artists are able to achieve bigger releases, on more formats, and – crucially – receive more money faster for their work.
In uncertain times membership means we can invest in emerging and established artists when other labels are holding back – you’re making that happen when you subscribe to Reckless Yes.
