Reverbose Records launched in 2003 with the release of The Stepford Five 6 EP, but it really started years earlier. When Miranda Sound put out their first album, Baby Inertia, in 2001, the created a fictional record label – Reverbose. The band would eventually sign to the midwest indie label Standard Recording Company and the name was retired. However, the Reverbose name was used again in the Fall of 2001 when TS5 and MS started planning a spring 2002 tour together of the east coast. Reverbose became the phony home of the two bands in order to provide more weight when calling venues in Washington DC, New York City, etc.
The tour happened (with mixed results) and the Reverbose name was retired again when the TS5 and MS hive mind decided to take the plunge and make Reverbose Records a real entity, officially incorporating, building a website and planning releases.
