About

Innervenus is a collective of artists and musicians, based in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Established in 2001, the idea was spawned out of necessity. We had some artistic endeavors and a band, so we wanted an art & music collective that we could oversee to envelope everything we do, and to incorporate others as we go along. The idea has evolved a lot since that time, but the same basic principles still apply; to create a network of artists, bands, promoters, vendors, etc; primarily of the metal, punk, and industrial varieties, that we work within to support each other and to achieve common goals together.

Over the years, through networking and a willingness / desire / need to try new things and experiment with different formats and ideas for promoting music to and from the underground scene that directly surrounds us and beyond, we have been lucky enough to work with the following bands (in alphabetical order):

Bottomfeeder, Entropy, Fist Fight in the Parking Lot, Invader, Killer of Sheep, Lycosa, Mockingbird, Molasses Barge, Motorpsychos, Necrolysis, October, Red Sun, Reducer, Sistered, Storm King, Submachine, the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble, the Bully Cats, Torrential Bleeding, and Vulture. We’ve also been responsible for a lot of shows and a couple of comps, including the Iron Atrocity series — our documentation of the Pittsburgh metal scene.

We’re always trying new things, and things are always changing. In all honesty, we’re not even sure if we’re a record label, a collective, a management service, a booking agency, or what. So, we choose not to define it.

Innervenus is, however, a 99.9% D.I.Y. operation, family owned and orchestrated.

Thank you for your support.
