Wilco Launch Their Own Label; Jeff Tweedy Plays Toronto and Montreal on Solo Tour
Published Jan 26, 2011Last summer, Chicago alt-country dudes Wilco hinted that they would be starting their own record label after parting ways with Nonesuch. Now, the hint has become a reality as the band have revealed their very own imprint: dBpm Records.
According to a press release, the label will release "all future Wilco recordings and more," and will be distributed by Anti-. Frontman Jeff Tweedy added, "This is an idea we've discussed for years. We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me. And, to be working with Anti-, a label that has its roots in a label that was started by a punk rock guy to sell his own records, seems like a perfect fit for us."
As of yet, Wilco have not announced the release of any new full-length but are currently at work on the follow-up to 2009's Wilco (The Album).
Tweedy will also get all DIY as he embarks on some solo tour dates in March, including stops in Toronto on March 22 and Montreal on March 25. All dates are available below.
