PunkNews conducted an interview with Chris Hansen from No Sleep Records.
Chris Hansen, Owner of No Sleep records, is no slouch when it comes to running his label. While many of the bands on his label are out touring the U.S. and beyond, he’s back at No Sleep HQ in Huntington Beach, CA pulling all nighters resolving website issues and packing orders. The hard work that Chris puts into the label is mirrored on the road by bands like La Dispute, Balance and Composure and Into It. Over It.. That hard work that the bands and the owner have put in to the label are what has made No Sleep flourish in recent years. Occasional Punknews Contributing Interviewer Adam Sever spoke with Chris just days after Record Store Day about the opening of their flagship store, the problems their new webstore was having due to the increased web traffic on Record Store Day, the music community they share with their friend’s labels, and sustaining the label’s growth into the future.
