Equal Vision Records is a record label based in Albany, New Yorkmarker, which has a focus in hardcore or punk-based rock genres. Equal Vision Records was founded in the early 1990s by Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter, Better Than a Thousand).

The label originally existed solely to distribute Shelter releases. In 1992, label manager Steve Reddy bought EVR from Cappo. The focus was expanded and a wider variety of bands were brought on board. According to Punk News , "The mid-to-late '90s saw a redoubling of the Equal Vision's hardcore efforts with such signings as One King Down and Ten Yard Fight. By the end of the '90s EVR found itself with an impressive stable of hardcore and punk bands, having added Bane, Trial, Converge and Saves the Day to its roster in the latter part of the decade."

In 2009, the label signed indie rock band Portugal. The Man, the label's first non-punk, emo or metal artist.

In July 2009 Equal Vision Records created a sub-label named Mantralogy. This sub-label will feature bands that "deliver edgy, Krishna-conscious music."
