Rogue Inks Deal With Century Media’s CM Distro
Indy metal imprint signs distribution deal with metal behemoth
New kid on the block independent metal label, Rogue Records America, has signed a distribution deal with industry giants Century Media Records’ CM Distro. The agreement sees the San Francisco based publisher adding to their global digital distribution network by expanding into physical CD mail order.
Speaking of the deal, Rogue Records Founder and CEO, Dean Martinetti said, “We have second to none global digital distribution but some fans want to hold a CD in their hands. Working with Century Media, the best in the industry in our opinion, allows us to give fans- and bands- music anyway they want it. It’s a real step forward for us.”
The first Rogue Records artist to benefit from the deal will be up and coming Australian industrial djent outfit, Synthetic Breed. Their album ‘Perpetual Motion Machine’, was previously available for download only.
“Rogue Records releases fit perfectly with Century Media’s metal and rock specialty. We’re stoked to be helping them make their music as widely available as possible to as many fans as possible,” said Jeff Wagner, Head Buyer at CM Distro, Century Media’s distribution arm.
‘Perpetual Motion Machine’ by Synthetic Breed is priced at $9.99 and will be available on Thursday March 22nd. Mail order at www.cmdistro.com.
