Red Scare Industries (sometimes referred to as Red Scare Records[1][2]) is a punk rock record label. The label was started in San Francisco (though now based in Chicago) by former Fat Wreck Chords employee Toby Jeg.[3][4]

Jeg started the label in 2004 when his friend Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms wanted a new label to release the EP for his new band The Falcon, it has since released material for bands such as The Lillingtons, Cobra Skulls, The Copyrights, Sundowner, Teenage Bottlerocket, and more. For 2010 and 2011, Red Scare albums by The Menzingers and The Sidekicks have been named album of the year by punknews.org.[5][6]

The label has also worked with non Red Scare artists on additional projects, including "Red Oktoberfest", an annual weekend music festival in Chicago which has featured bands such as The Lawrence Arms, American Steel, and Off With Their Heads, and the Swingin' Utters tribute album, Untitled 21: A Juvenile Tribute to the Swingin' Utters, which most notably featured the Dropkick Murphys.[7][8]
