Razorcake provides a unique, unduplicated resource and authoritative voice for do-it-yourself punk culture.
We believe in a form of punk that is community-friendly, truly independent, positive, progressive, relevant, and exciting.
It is currently a magazine, website, book, and record publisher providing the highest quality content possible in a culture that is often misunderstood, misrepresented, and exploited.
We are a cohesive home and forum for over 120 independent volunteer writers, photographers, and illustrators around the world. Our open participation and solicitation policy means that anyone can potentially become a contributor.
Collectively, we provide a legitimate, critical, alternative, non-profiteering approach to music and are the only bonafide 501(c)(3) non-profit music magazine in America. Although Razorcake champions the local and has a national presence, Razorcake also self-administers international distribution of the magazine to over twenty countries.
If Razorcake disappeared, the strength of the community we are apart of and have created will be weakened. On a national scale, we are one of two independent, printed, on-time, periodic resources that covers DIY punk.
We believe the following…
DIY punk is a valid, exciting, continually evolving culture and that outside corporate interests in DIY punk have overwhelmingly been predatory. We’re still waiting for an example to the contrary.
We believe that a trustworthy network of information in DIY culture creates a more efficient, critical, and stronger culture.
Much like vinyl records, we believe that publishing in a physical format preserves content that is consistent with the DIY punk ethos.
It is Razorcake’s goal to continue building a viable 21st century framework that supports DIY culture and truly independent punk.
