Independiente is a record label formed in 1997 after Andy MacDonald sold Go! Discs Records to PolyGram in 1996 for a reported £30 million. In the UK, the label is distributed Vital PIAS.

Most of the label's roster including Travis, David Ford, Gomez, Martina Topley Bird, Howling Bells have left the label in recent years, going on to release further records on other labels. It is currently unknown if Embrace, who have been on hiatus since 2007, are still under contract to the label.

Label success

The label saw a considerable amount of success in the late 1990s and early 2000s with Travis's album The Man Who being cited as the 25th biggest selling album in the UK,[1] and their follow up The Invisible Band in 2001, along with Out of Nothing, Embrace's UK number one comeback album released in September, 2004. Embrace's follow-up album This New Day also debuted at number one, becoming the band's third number one album .
