Ebullition Records is an American independent record label and distro based out of Goleta, California. It published HeartattaCk, a zine focusing on independent punk rock and hardcore punk from around the world, informed by an anti-consumerist and D.I.Y. ideology.


Kent McClard, a former Maximum RocknRoll columnist, founded Ebullition Records, in 1990.[1] Sonia Skindrud (writer of Exedra 'zine) and Brent Stephens (member of Downcast) contributed; Skindrud named the label, and Stephens drew the logo. The label is primarily run by McClard.

The Los Angeles youth crew hardcore band Inside Out was meant to record an LP as the first Ebullition release.[1] However, Revelation Records asked them to release a 7" instead, and the band chose the more established label. The record wasn't released for another year, after the band had broken up and reformed as Rage Against The Machine. Inside Out had planned a second record, to be titled "Rage Against the Machine", a phrase coined by McClard in the 'zine No Answers #9.[1] They never managed to finish this second release and singer Zack de La Rocha ended up using the phrase for the title of his next band.

Ebullition's first release was in late 1990. Kent had been doing the No Answers 'zine since 1983; the ninth issue came with the Downcast 7" (Ebullition #1). Ebullition released 3,000 copies. After those were sold, the 'zine and 7" became separate products.

Ebullition releases span a variety of styles of underground hardcore, including thrashcore, crust punk, post-hardcore and screamo.
