Bloody Chamber Music is an independent record label founded by English singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf.[1] Label was named after Angela Carter's book "The Bloody Chamber" that thrilled Patrick in early ages. [2]

Wolf originally started the label as somewhere to store his digital back-catalogue of music. However, he has since explained that due to music piracy, as well as the current economic climate, some artists have been finding it difficult to stay in music. Bloody Chamber Music is a label which will allow such artists to follow their vocation, and be supported by their fans.[3]


Bandstocks is a new system that allows fans and artists to take control and collaborate directly with one another. Through the Bandstocks website, financial instruments (Bandstocks) are offered to fans and professional investors to raise the necessary sum of money to make and market an album. With Bandstocks, artists get a bigger share of the recording income than under many other record deals, while fans, in return for their investment, receive both acknowledgment and a share of the proceeds to reward their commitment.[4]

Patrick Wolf collaborated with his fans through Bandstocks for his latest album release, The Bachelor. Wolf's fifth album, Lupercalia, will not, however, be released using Bandstocks.
