Cleveland-Based Steadfast Records Returns After a 17-Year Hiatus

In the past, the locally based record label Steadfast Records released albums by national acts such as Zao and Brandtson.

But then, some 17 years ago, label founder Matt Traxler put the label on hold so he could focus on playing guitar for Brandtson.

Now, he’s revived the local label, which will release World War, the debut full-length album from the local duo Golden Streets of Paradise, a band that emerged from the ashes of Brandston. The album will be available on LP, cassette and CD and in digital formats on Sept. 22. The band will tour this fall.

In addition, the label’s back catalog will be available for digital purchase and on all major streaming services. The label also plans to reissue past releases on vinyl and cassette. The labels has been raising money by selling off rare old stock along with old and new T-shirts.
