Peaceville Records is an independent metal-oriented record label. The label was founded first founded as a cassette tape label by Hammy (of the bands Instigators and Civilised Society?, who was also one-time drummer of Sore Throat) in Dewsbury, England, 1981. In the early years the label was mostly oriented towards punk. In 1987, the label's orientation changed from punk to metal.
In November 2006, after 25 years at the helm, Halmshaw announced that he and co-manager Lisa Halmshaw would be leaving the label to concentrate on new projects, and that his former assistant, Paul Groundwell, would be taking over general management duties, following the sale of the label to back catalogue specialists Snapper Music, who had distributed Peaceville since 2001.
