Dine Alone turns 10!
In celebration of our 10th Anniversary, we are promising a year full of surprises for discerning music fans. This year we will be launching a number of exciting, exclusive and limited edition releases featuring current artists and artist-alumni from our roster. We are also looking forward to holding multiple special events and rolling out many other rad surprises over the course of the year.
Dine Alone was born out of a bedroom in St. Catharines working with then relatively small post-hardcore act, Alexisonfire, and has grown into a hotbed of genre-spanning artists and releases. Our roster spans the early days of City and Colour, Arkells and Bedouin Soundclash, recent signings Monster Truck and Tokyo Police Club, to international award-winning artists The Lumineers, The Civil Wars, Jimmy Eat World and Marilyn Manson and vinyl re-issues from our own influencers At The Drive In and Quicksand. We have expanded into Nashville and Los Angeles, and launched companion labels New Damage, Haven and One Big Silence. We’ve remain on the forefront of digital media – partnering with Volu.me and being the first to employ iBeacon technology in a concert setting. To top it off, we’ve even started a specialty foods company, Dine Alone Foods. (mmmmm, BBQ.) Dine Alone has evolved into a multi-faceted company that, ten years later, still operates on the simple premise of friends helping friends.
The first DA10 Year special release is Collection from Helicon Blue; a St. Catharines three-piece featuring Dallas Green, Marce Lanteigne and Nick Osczypko. Click here for more information on the limited edition vinyl release.
We’ve also (evidently) launched our brand new website with a special page dedicated to all things 10 Year, along with a new DA10 webstore – which will be the only place to purchase DA10 Year limited edition colour-vinyl releases, rare test pressings and original Dine Alone merchandise. Click here to view the 10 Year Exclusive Vinyl Bundle – Pt. 1 – the first instalment of an ongoing vinyl series. New items will be added to the store throughout the year, so be sure to check back often!
For your nostalgic listening pleasure, we’ve put together a retrospective playlist, so you can reminisce on the roots of Dine Alone with us. Stream the DA10year: The Early Years (2005-2009) playlist here.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements that will be rolling out over the coming weeks!
