WELL! We have had such a crazy, busy couple of months, we felt it right to combine them into one exciting bundle of information, cogitation and procrastination.
Firstly, we signed a super cool distribution deal, with Red Essential, here's some info about our awesome new buddies:
"Red Essential is the alliance of Sony Music RED and Essential Music and Marketing providing physical and digital product management, sales, marketing and label services for music artists and record labels based in Acton, West London.
The company brings together a formidable independent network and the scale of Sony Music’s truly global infrastructure. Headed up by Ian Dutt and Mike Chadwick Red Essential offers independent labels and artists a truly gold standard for worldwide access to market."
So that's pretty exciting news!
Secondly we saw our first label release, 'Past / Future' by Brightlight City, which you can purchase at all good digital outlets, and stream on Spotify / Soundcloud and so on.
We also held our first official UDCR night at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston (we've put on previous shows there, but this was the first of a new era for us!) It was an INCREDIBLE night of live music, where every band got paid and played to loads of lovely music fans! Props to Taikonaut, High Rise and Far Suns Fall for putting on an epic show!
SO, what have we got coming up? I hear you ask. Great question!
On April 7th we see the release of Brightlight City's new EP, which will be on all digital platforms and also will be in physical format (vinyl and CD) at selected record shops. We urge you to support new music, and a new label and buy as many copies as your bank balance can handle. It's an awesome EP, with a lot of heart, so do the right thing!
We are on the lookout to expand our roster and add to our family, so watch this space for new signings and music! ALSO, we have loads of merchandise going up soon, so keep those peepers peeled, innit.
LOCAL BANDS THAT YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT: Best of Enemies, Bellevue Days, Raggybones, High Rise, Chisel Beeches, Far Suns Fall, Taikonaut, Cute Cute Death, Versonic....The list is ENDLESS!
BIG love and zombie hugs xxx
