Alex Kirk Amen - We've been working closely with Alex to record and produce his debut 5 song EP, 'Shitwreck'. It is in the process of being mastered now and we are already booking shows for his May tour. Stay tuned for more news about his shows and upcoming punk / country release, coming early next March.
Captain Wails and The Harpoons - We have had the great pleasure of sitting own with them after the holidays and discussing their enormous touring plans for the summer, as well as them finishing up their upcoming full length record at one of our facilities. They're incredible guys who have all relocated to Portland to chase down their rock 'n roll dreams. More announcements to follows as they gear up for massive full US tour. Their last release can be found here on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/2fJNcO6Tpiu8VZKwikYj3R
Easy Go - This melodic ensemble just released their knockout EP "...Just Can't Win" and will be returning to play shows this year. They are shamelessly poppy and some of the nicest, easy going human beings we have ever met - just one more reason to love em. Check out their EP: https://weareeasygo.bandcamp.com/album/just-cant-win
Ike Fonseca - Ike has been a friend of us for years and he recently just put out his first full length acoustic record "Letters Home". After 10+ years of playing bass in bands like The Civies, Burn The Stage, and The Disliked, we couldn't be more proud of Ike for hitting the road to put his acoustic and voice to the test. Check out his new album on iTunes @ http://bitly.com/iKeTunes
Secnd Best - Now on tour, Secnd Best just ripped up Dante's before splitting town before heading down the west coast for their road trip. Their latest album "Fact." dropped in 2015 and is further proof that they are indeed the mad scientists of punk rock. They are rumored to be working on a new EP between road trips. You can crank their latest release here: https://open.spotify.com/album/1ObIWOEptcvEo90iF6sau0
Toxic Kid - The kings of the bad boy club, Toxic Kid, are booked for a spring tour this March, taking them across state lines to Cali, Nevada, and Arizona. Bursting with hooks, Toxic Kid is nothing short of a work horse machine that just can't stop oozing 3-part harmonies on every stage they ignite. Scope their latest full length here, on Spotify: http://bit.ly/ToxicSpotify

We are very pleased to announce that we have signed a new local act to the No Pants Records roster. Please welcome aboard The Stein Project!
Earlier this year, we chanced upon The Stein Project’s progressive hard rock streaming out the door of a local venue. We wandered in and liked the mathy prowess we heard. It was obvious that The Stein Project brought some focused energy and raw fire to the table. Their backbone, stemming from their solid drummer and youthful, energetic riffs, creates musical breadth across their practiced chops. They have the rare combination of old soul riffs and a lavish display of testosterone. The Stein Project is a well-rehearsed, hungry band that pumps out a napalm bomb sound with great beauty.
The group has been plugging away, playing frequent shows in the local scene and towns around the Northwest. Ready for something bigger, Jason, Spencer and Cory have recorded their first major release. The Stein Project's new album, Creature Culture, will be released this May on No Pants Records. It was recorded & mixed at Toad House Studio with Adam Pike, and mastered by Carl Saff in Chicago. As a power trio, they know how to make a three-piece band sound like a 20 piece band using their instruments to their full advantage and abilities. We can't wait to get their record out and into your eardrums.
Please check out our band page for more information on The Stein Project. You can also catch them live at the Twilight Café & Bar on April 17th!
Welcome to the family, Jason, Spencer and Cory!

Currently, we are in the process of trying to remove our content from iTunes (temporarily) and ending our business relationship with our distributor. For those with short attention spans, the moral of the story is: PLEASE STOP BUYING OUR ALBUM!! First time for everything, right? And even more importantly: WE WILL BE DOING A SECOND, EVEN BETTER, MAYBE EVEN GRAND, IF YOU WILL, RELEASE. Read on for an explanation of this tomfoolery.
Like all creative and adventurous types, we decided to try something new. After exhausting several pots of coffee, multiple cocktails and hours of research, we went with a new digital distributor for the latest Ninjas With Syringes release, “Jetsetter.” We always aim to provide high quality content in a fun, easily accessible way but we also aim to stay on the cutting edge and let our experiences help all the musicians on the No Pants label as well as the community (some might say family) of musicians we are a part of.
Long story short: We did you guys a huge favor! We got screwed! Fortunately, in an abundance of caution, we only did a soft release of the album on iTunes. Unfortunately, our new distributor (Ditto Music) has not forwarded any of our revenues to us, nor will respond to email. And they’re definitely not returning our calls. This is sounding more and more like a one night stand. Does she even know my name?
If you would like the album, please do not buy it through iTunes. Pressed copies are already on their way to us and will soon be available on nopantsrecords.com. We are already in talks with our old digital distributor as well as another new distributor, because WE ARE RESILIENT AND BRAVE, OR INCREDIBLY FOOLISH. Thanks for sticking with us anyway!
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
