:::The History Of Tiberius:::
Originally founded in 1996 by Rick McCarty, Mike Montgomery, and Toby
Weiss to release recordings by their band, thistle, TIBERIUS has continued
growing to encompass and support their various other musical interests. With a heightened
emphasis on songcraft and melody, the label is heading wherever engaging, expressive music
will take it.
With the addition of the hulking, guitar-driven rock band, El Gigante, and the
subsequent release of their critically acclaimed, The Official Guide to Loss, along
with the release of thistle's stunning releases, Sea Legs, &
The Oxygen EP, TIBERIUS is slated to ring in the new year with a slate-full
of great new music. Beginning in mid-2002 with the release of the first full-length from
instrumental rockers, Ampline, the future looks indeed very bright.
While they don't eschew any notions of becoming the next label de Moment, or cultural hub for Indie Rock's disposessed, label founders McCarty, Montgomery, and Weiss will assuredly continue using their anonymity within the industry to navigate through the established framework, seeking out the great bands that fall through the cracks.
