Constellation Records is an independent record label based in Montreal, Quebec that is known for its contributions to experimental genres of music. It is most famous for releasing the albums of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band, and Do Make Say Think.

The label was founded in 1997, operating out of a loft in Montreal’s inner city. Its founders had intended to begin by providing a live performance space for the musicians of Montreal’s thriving underground music world, with the label to follow, but bureaucratic difficulties put an end to this plan, and the stage was skipped. Instead, the label and the live performance series—entitled Musique fragile—began simultaneously. In 2004, the label relocated to larger quarters in Montreal’s Mile End district, where it currently resides.
