ANTI- is an American record label founded in 1999 as a sister label of Epitaph Records.
While Epitaph’s focus has shifted over the last decade[clarification needed] from mostly punk rock, nowadays ANTI- has a more diverse roster, ranging from country (Merle Haggard), hip hop (Sage Francis, The Coup), reggae (Michael Franti), Soul (Bettye LaVette), folk (The Swell Season), rap-rock (One Day as a Lion), indie rock (Islands) and Tom Waits.
