Article: Wilco Starts Own Label


Wilco Starts Own Label

Wilco has left their old label, 'Nonesuch', after releasing four albums with the company. Now the band has decided to move forward on its own, starting their own label, called 'dBpm Records'. The label will release all future Wilco recordings, as well as other releases, and will be run by the band's manager Tony Margherita. The label will get distribution help from California label 'ANTI-'. In July, guitarist Nels Cline noted that the band was splitting with Nonesuch and mentioned the possibility that they would put out limited-edition releases in a vein similar to Jack White's Third Man Records. "There's going to be funny things to come out. There might be a 7-inch or something, a little souvenir when we do [Wilco's curated Solid Sound Festival]." Responding to the announcement, front man Jeff Tweedy noted,
"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."
The band is currently recording the follow up to their last album, Wilco, in their Chicago studio The Loft. It’s planned to be out sometime in 2011. In the meantime, Wilco and Tweedy both announced dates for the spring. Check out the dates below: Jeff Tweedy Solo Dates: 3/22, Toronto, Ontario (Queen Elizabeth Theatre) 3/25, Montreal, Quebec (L'Olympia de Montreal) 3/26, Portland, ME (State Theatre) 3/28, Madison, WI (Capitol Theater) 3/29, Rochester, MN (Mayo Civic Center Presentation Hall) 3/30, Iowa City, IA (The Englert Theatre) Wilco Tour Dates: 5/2, Montgomery, AL (Montgomery PAC) 5/3, Mobile, AL (Saenger Theatre) 5/5, New Orleans, LA (Jazzfest) 5/6, Houston, TX (Verizon Wireless Theater) 5/7, Denton, TX (University of North Texas Auditorium) 5/8, Tulsa, OK (Cain's Ballroom)
