Hopeless Records is an independent record label located in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California.[1][2] The label was started in 1993 by Louis Posen. Hopeless's artists are generally considered punk rock, pop punk, post-hardcore, or alternative rock, but some also include elements of various genres of metal. Some of their most well-known artists include or included Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice, Yellowcard, Anarbor, All Time Low, There For Tomorrow, Silverstein, We Are The In Crowd, Bayside, The Used, The Wonder Years, The Human Abstract and Enter Shikari.[3]
