Evanescence’s label before they signed to Wind-up Records. Bigwig mostly featured punk bands. Brad Caviness worked in this label.

Under this label Evanescence published Sound Asleep EP (1999) and Origin (2000). Evanescence first appeared in the label in 1998, in the RIM v.beta compilation.

"Bigwig Enterprises" published the first merchandise of the band after Origin was released: a shirt and a poster; both sold during the Little Rock concerts back in 2000.

In the official label's website Origin was available for purchase at the price of 15$[1]. The album could be reserved both online via PayPal.com or via mail. Shipping were available for USA, and after some time also for Canada (at the price of 16$) and even for Europe (at the price of 17$)[2]. Origin got out of print in February 2003, during the same month of the Daredevil Soundtrack's release[3]. The label manufactered only 2,500 copies of Origin, with the first pressing of 1,000 copies delivered in October 2000 and the final pressing of 1,500 copies in January 2001. When the final batch was delivered, Evanescence had just signed to a major label and they were released from their agreement with Bigwig who relinquished their license to manufacture or distribute any additional copies of Origin.
