Canadian singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Mac DeMarco has just announced his very own record label aptly dubbed, “Mac’s Record Label.”
Mac’s Record Label will be distributed globally by Caroline, a full service partner to the independent label and artist community, and more information about the label is slated to be revealed on the Mac’s Record Label website very soon.
Along with this reveal, Mac has also announced his first-ever solo tour, called the Purple Bobcat Next to River. The solo tour picks up directly after Mac’s current full-band tour across the U.K. and Europe, which finds him in North America and northern Europe throughout fall.
The solo dates kick off at California’s Tropicália Festival on November 4 where the other headliners are Cardi B, Morrissey, and Kali Uchis. You can check out the rest of the Purple Bobcat Next to River tour dates below.
