Hopeful Tragedy Records
With our HQ located in a former Catholic church in the outskirts of Montreal, Canada, Hopeful Tragedy Records was born of an idea that our two founders Alex Henry Foster and his best friend, business partner, and bandmate Jeff Beaulieu, had to start their independent record label in order to share their music, projects, and vision with the world.
More than a decade later, the duo, along with more bandmates and a small team, is relentlessly and passionately working at building this dream founded on a strong DIY ethos, bringing our creations, music and projects to span the globe, under the creative and artistic direction of Alex Henry Foster himself.
With facilities that allow us to craft our own limited and collector edition lathe-cut vinyls, silkscreen-printed posters, merchandise, exclusive packages and more, our moto “the evidence of things unseen” is proven right as we’re resolute to turning each spark of an idea into tangible and life-lasting creations meant to be communed with anyone daring to believe in what is often deemed impossible. It is when we start believing that what was kept invisible gradually sees the light and comes to life.
