Independent music investment firm Exceleration Music has announced a “strategic financial alliance” with indie label Mom+Pop Music, which will allow the record company to expand and sign new artists. “We chose this path because it provides financial tools enabling us to maintain our self-sufficiency”, says label co-owner Thaddeus Rudd. “We’ve created a hybrid in today’s market, offering artistic controls and a boutique service, pairing it with the power and reach of a larger system. This expansion is a bet on our artists, our staff and our collective future”.



Warner Music China has signed one of the country’s biggest stars, Miriam Yeung. “I’m super excited for this episode in my life”, she says. “I look forward to partnering with Warner Music in this new chapter of my musical journey, bringing my work to new places and even more people around Asia. I am more than ready than I have ever been”.



Party Dozen have teamed up with Nick Cave for new single ‘Macca The Mutt’. Party Dozen’s new album, ‘The Real Work’, is out on 8 Jul.



Deftones have announced that they will play The Kentish Town Forum in London on 13 Jun. Tickets go on general sale on 20 May.
