The Dandy Warhols to release their own records

Band leave the world of major labels behind

The Dandy Warhols have left their major label, Capitol, and plan to release their next album on their own label, Beat The World.

The move has come after the band’s last album, 2005’s ‘Odditorium Or The Warlords Of Mars’, sold poorly compared to its predecessors.

Speaking to Billboard guitarist Peter Holmstrom said: “We had interest [from major labels], but I didn’t seek out any major label deals this time around.”

The band’s manager Lee Cohen added: “We were all totally done dealing with major label incompetence. The last record was literally just dumped in bins at stores and they walked away from it.”

The Dandy Warhols‘ as-yet-untitled new album is expected to be released later this year.
