Mac DeMarco announces new label and first ever solo tour
Mac DeMarco has announced the bold decision to launch his own record label which is set to be called Mac’s Record Label.
So far in his career, DeMarco has released his music through longtime record company Captured Tracks. It has been revealed, however, that his new label will be distributed through Universal Music Group’s Caroline.
“My friend Jen who plays the drums in The Courtneys gave me the name,” he said in a press release.
On top of the momentous label news, DeMarco has also announced his first-ever solo tour which has been named the ‘Purple Bobcat Next to River Tour’. Forever keeping busy, the new solo dates will get going straight after the U.S. and European shows alongside his band.
The Tropicalia Fest in Long Beach, California will be the start date for the solo shows. However, the first headlining solo gig will happen at Valley Bar in Phoenix, Arizona, in November. However, his first UK solo gig will happen Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse as part of the Now Wave 10th Birthday.
