Wilco forms new label, dBpm - Tour Dates Announced
Late this afternoon came the announcement that Wilco had formed its own label, dBpm Records. The press release states Easthampton, MA as the headquarters for the venture and that the label will release all future recordings by the band. Wilco's manager, Tony Margherita, will run the label and ANTI- Records will provide distribution and services for all dBpm Records releases.
"This is an idea we've discussed for years,” said Tweedy. “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.”
