IMAGEM MUSIC UK ANNOUNCES NEW GLOBAL PUBLISHING DEAL WITH KAISER CHIEFS

 

London 6 November 2015 | Imagem, the world’s leading independent music publishing company, today announces a new global publishing deal with multi-Brit award winning band, Kaiser Chiefs.

 

The news coincides with the announcement that the band has also renewed their record deal with Fiction Records/Caroline, as they return to the studio to record their sixth studio album with Brian Higgins (Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue).

 

Imagem Music has a long-standing history of working with the band via their original publishing agreement when they acquired Rondor Music. The new deal effective immediately will see Imagem publish the band globally, representing all future copyrights in addition to existing copyrights in the UK and Europe.

 

Having sold 6 million records over the last 10 years, enjoyed countless Top 10 hits, the band have remained as one of the UK’s premier rock bands and continue to be a significant force – earlier this year they played a sold out UK arena tour including The O2 Arena in London, and their current album, Education, Education, Education & War debuted at No.1 in the UK Album Chart.

 

Kim Frankiewicz, Managing Director of Imagem Music UK commented, “Our history with the Kaisers goes back to the very beginning at Imagem. As a band they have evolved and the spirit of their songwriting has an unbound energy. I’m delighted to be working with them once more, this time on a global basis, working alongside our offices in Europe, North America, as well as our partners throughout the world”

 

James Sandom of Redlight Management commented, "We're delighted to sign a direct deal for Kaiser Chiefs with Imagem Music. Imagem has proven a dedicated and creative home for the band since the acquisition of Rondor Music in 2008‎, helping secure a number of substantial licenses and showing the attention to detail any artist would wish for from their publisher".
