"No New Kinda Story"
In early 1993, after watching a handful of hardcore bands in Southern California, Brandon Ebel took a loan from his grandfather. With a little cash and even less industry experience, Ebel launched one of the most influential—and controversial—independent labels of the last 20 years: Tooth & Nail Records. Until we filmed, produced, and edited the full-length feature, "No New Kinda Story: The Real Story of Tooth & Nail Records," the real story of Tooth & Nail hadn't yet been told. This revealing documentary was accompanied by a 350-page photo book and website commemorating 20 years of Tooth & Nail’s history. Together, the suite tells the no-holds-barred, behind-the-scenes story of the rise, fall, and rebirth of the iconic label.
