A group of former Caroline, Fontana, and Lumberjack distribution employees announced the launch of the Independent Label Collective (ILC).

COO Tracy Wilson describes the ILC as a "collaborative effort between a number of independent music's greatest labels and musicians combining resources and experience to deliver new and DIY-minded solutions to distribution (physical & digital music sales), merchandising, marketing, licensing and PR worldwide."

Labels represented by the ILC include Asian Man, Gravity, Red Scare, and Cavity Records.
