About The Label

Iron Pier is an independent record label owned by Xin Li and David Vibert based in Brooklyn, NY. We are interested in the bridges & gaps between pop and darker, often aggressive, music.

We primarily release vinyl records and digital albums, but increasingly we have produced cassettes, photo books, apparel, and a variety of other matter.

The label was founded in 2005 to release records by leading Long Island hardcore bands, as well as several DIY punk and post-punk bands from Brooklyn. Around 2011, David partnered with Xin and the label's focus shifted to working with national, and Brooklyn-based artists.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you accept demos?

A: We accept streaming demos. Please email us a streaming link at demos@ironpier.net

Q: How much does shipping cost and what is your shipping policy?

A: To calculate shipping to your destination, place your items in your shopping cart and begin the checkout process. All packages are shipped via the United States Postal Service. Media Mail is usually the cheapest and is available for US-bound packages, but can only be used for contents that USPS classifies as "media," such as records, cassettes, and CDs. First Class Mail can be used for packages up to 13oz and Priority Mail for packages over 13oz. First Class Mail International Package is used for international packages. Shipping prices are based on the weight of your package including contents and packaging. Shipping prices are taken directly from USPS and include an additional cost, approximately $1.50, to cover the cost of packaging.

Q: Why is international shipping so expensive?

A: All shipping prices come direct from the US Postal Service. In recent years the USPS has had to dramatically raise international shipping prices.

Q: How long will it take to get my order?

A: Direct orders are usually shipped within 1-3 business days of when they are placed. All orders are shipped with tracking and follow-up emails with tracking numbers are mailed out upon shipping. If you did not receive an email containing your tracking number within 1-3 days, please check your junk mail box and if you have no luck, please then contact us at mailorder at ironpier.net.
