Cleopatra Records[1] is an American, Los Angeles-based independent record label, founded in 1992 by entrepreneur and music fan Brian Perera. It has since grown into a family of labels, including Hypnotic Records,[2] Goldenlane, Stardust, Purple Pyramid, Deadline[3] and X-Ray Records.[4]

In 2012 Cleopatra acquired the entire catalog of releases by San Francisco Bay Area punk label, New Red Archives, formerly owned by Nicky Garratt of UK Subs. The catalog includes politically charged punk band Anti-Flag, early 1980s NY-based hardcore group Kraut, Metalcore pioneers Hogan's Heroes, and an early project featuring Sunny Day Real Estate / Foo Fighters bassist, Nate Mendel called Christ On A Crutch.[5]
