EMI takes on physical and digital distribution for Century Media’s newly affiliated label PeopleLikeYouRecords
COLOGNE, 3 DECEMBER 2009 – EMI Music’s Label Services division and Century Media Records, one of the world’s most renowned and successful heavy metal labels, have further expanded their relationship around the world.
In October 2009, it was announced that EMI will assume physical and digital distribution of Century Media’s roster of artists in Australia and New Zealand, in addition to the North American, UK and Continental European, South African and Middle East territories where EMI already distributes Century Media Records. Century Media’s artists include Lacuna Coil, Paradise Lost, Suicide Silence, In This Moment and Winds of Plague. In addition to physical distribution, it was also announced that EMI will take on digital distribution for Century Media in the UK, Continental Europe, South Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. EMI will also handle digital distribution for Japan (iTunes) and Korea (EMI Label Services added digital distribution services for Century in North America in January 2009).
As of January 2010, in addition to taking on physical and digital distribution for Century Media’s two newly-affiliated labels InsideOutMusic and SuperballMusic, EMI Label Services will also provide these services to Century Media’s most recent addition, PeopleLikeYouRecords, a PunkRock/Psychobilly label that is home to the Broilers, Toxpac, and the Adicts, among others. EMI will distribute the rosters for all three of these prominent labels for Century Media in the UK, Continental Europe, the Middle East,
Australia, New Zealand, Korea, and for Itunes in Japan.
