The Blasting Room is a recording studio in Fort Collins, Colorado. Founded by members of the punk rock band All in 1994, it is owned and operated by musician Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag, All, Only Crime) and Jason Livermore. The studio is known for recording and producing many punk rock bands, with Stevenson and Livermore serving as in-house audio engineers and record producers.[2]

In July 1994, the members of All relocated from Brookfield, Missouri to Fort Collins.[3] Using money from their recent recording contract with Interscope Records, they designed and began construction of The Blasting Room with the help of guitarist Stephen Egerton's father, Dan O' Reilly.[3] The studio opened four months later, featuring a two-inch analog 24-track tape machine, a mixing console manufactured by Solid State Logic, and a variety of outboard gear.[3] The 4,000 square foot facility includes three recording studios: Studio A, the largest, features three isolation booths; The smaller Studio B has a separate control room; Studio C is a mixing and editing suite.[4] In early 2018 The Blasting Room finished renovations that included the addition of a Mastering Suite designed by acoustician John H. Brandt.[3] The Blasting Room also features a lounge, kitchen, and two bedrooms available to visiting artists.[4] In addition to production, engineering, and mixing, the studio also offers audio mastering services done by Livermore.[4]
