TBD Records (previously Side One Recordings) is an American record label co-founded by Coran Capshaw and Phil Costello, and is a sublabel of ATO Records, distributed by RED Distribution. The label was founded in August 2007 and quickly announced its first release, the band Underworld's first studio album in five years, Oblivion with Bells. Side One Recordings gained attention when it was connected with the CD release of Radiohead's 2007 album In Rainbows in the United States and Canada. In 2008 they signed the British band Hatcham Social, releasing their debut album You Dig The Tunnel I'll Hide The Soil in June 2009.

Name change from Side One Recordings

Due to legal issues with a similarly named operator in the U.S., Side One Recordings was forced to change its name. This brought Underworld and Radiohead under the same newly named label.[1] According to the TBD Records website, "The original name for this record company was Side One Recordings. But some potential issues caused us to figure out a new name, and quick. We came up with TBD as it seemed appropriate for the situation, but we like it."[2]
