Quick label overview...

The first project to be released on the Twin/Tone label was a nine song 7" EP (on red vinyl) by The Suburbs in April of 1978. Before 2017, the last project to be released on the Twin/Tone label was a live Suburbs CD released in November of 1994. Between 1977 and 1994, Twin/Tone Records released over 300 records. During those years we worked with over 100 bands and 11 indie labels. We helped over 25 of the bands go on to major labels.

We have licensed some of our bigger projects (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Ween, The Jayhawks...) to Restless Records which is owned by Ryko/ Warner Brothers. Many of our titles are available via the iTunes store or as custom burned CDs. .
