After over a decade with Dischord Records, the DC-based band Beauty Pill has signed with the new New York-based label Butterscotch Records.

Of the label switch, Beauty Pill’s Chad Clark says: “I will always feel love and gratitude toward Dischord. I don’t know where I’d be in my life if it weren’t for Ian MacKaye believing in me and choosing to amplify and distribute my work. But it goes beyond that. What you learn from Ian is how to address the world on your own terms.”

Clark, who is well-known for his work as a producer/engineer on albums by Fugazi, Mary Timony, Dismemberment Plan, Bob Mould, and Marc Ribot adds “Butterscotch was founded by a producer/engineer named Allen Farmelo, a guy I very much respect and admire. He’s full of integrity. In one early conversation, I said ‘I don’t know if Beauty Pill’s music fits in anywhere,’ he responded simply and flatly ‘I don’t care. It’s great art. That’s all that matters to me.’ In many respects, Allen reminds me of Ian.”

Farmelo is thrilled to add Beauty Pill to the roster, and says “It’s important that Butterscotch slowly builds a roster of artists who are breaking new musical turf, upholding really high standards of fidelity and also taking a daring approach to live performance. The stuff Beauty Pill has been up to in the past couple years embodies everything we value, and Chad and I are sympatico on a lot of levels, even our politics. And that matters to me.
