Bad Timing Records
Bad Timing Records is an independent record label run by Thomas Nassiff and Zack Zarrillo from the cities of New York and Philadelphia. Started as a “bucket list” dream of Nassiff and Zarrillo’s in July 2013 with a first-time vinyl pressing of Acceptance’s Phantoms, the label quickly began gaining a positive reputation in the vinyl community before expanding away from reissues and into original releases.
Bad Timing was dreamed up in February 2013 and was a launching point, alongside Rocky Point, of many future ideas and goals.

I was hired by Jade Tree in June 2014 to re-launch the iconic punk and hardcore label following a period of hibernation. Darren Walters, the label's co-founder, was my school professor at Drexel University, which lead to our teaming up. I stopped working at the label in August 2015 following a breaking down of our internal processes. I was involved in these releases:
Dark Blue - Pure Reality
You Blew It - Pioneer of Nothing
Spraynard - Bench, Mable
Socialite - I See You/I Don’t Care
Dogs on Acid - Dogs on Acid
The Promise Ring - 30° Everywhere, Nothing Feels Good, Very Emergency (Reissues)
Jade Tree - Twenty Five Years
Procrastinate! Music Traitors

Greater Pyrenees - Greater Pyrenees
Brand New - I Am A Nightmare
Brand New - Mene
Brand New - 3 Demos, Reworked
Kevin Devine - Instigator

Brand New's Science Fiction was a number one record in 2017, and the first independent release of 2017 to reach number one.
