5ever is an underground publishing house based at Revel Press, Trades Hall in Te Whanganui-a-Tara since December 2020.[1] Their about section of their website states:

"We print, splice, bind and chop pesky dank little books. Our scope is nebulous. Form and sense of disciplinarity remains plural. But our target is clear: to publish punchy, intense and interdisciplinary work, woven together by a shared transformational kaupapa. We recognise the collective necessity of actively infiltrating and affecting our playground and home, Wellington. As we balance our vision with pragmatism, we are committed to realising a post-capitalist vision that honours Te Tiriti O  Waitangi in Aotearoa. We are serious in our playfulness."[1]
