TaP Music Publishing has signed Kathy Lee, better known as Yaeji. “Kathy is a most holistic of artists whose music and art transcends genres and cultures”, says TaP Head Of A&R Chris Woo. “We feel privileged that she’s chosen to call TaP her publishing home and are beyond excited to be working as a team with her, her management and her label XL Recordings over the next course of her career to evolve and expand on an already impressive catalogue of work”.



Universal’s Capitol Records UK has promoted Tom Paul to the role of General Manager. He was previously Marketing Director. “We have worked with Tom for over twelve years and in that time he has proved himself to be an exemplary marketing executive”, says co-President Jo Charrington. “He has proven himself to be more than ready for this GM role, and we are THRILLED to work with him in what promises to be an exciting 2021 for Capitol and its expanding roster”.



Lethal Bizzle has released new track ‘Daily Duppy’.

Korn guitarist Brian Welch’s other band Love & Death have released their first new track for eight years, ‘Down’. New album ‘Perfectly Preserved’ is set for release through Earache on 12 Feb. “I feel like what our world needs most in this very unique moment in time are real stories about overcoming struggle”, says Welch. “These are honest songs co-written by our group of friends targeting depression/mental health, challenging relationships, trauma, loneliness, and related issues”.

Jammer has released new track ‘Ain’t The Same’, featuring JME.

The Staves have released new single ‘Satisfied’. “This started out with an acoustic guitar”, they say. “The song asking its subject – will they ever be satisfied with what they have? Is it ever enough? But also urging them not to give up on themselves, and love. The song really came to life when we added the band, and gave strength and a backbone to the whole sentiment of the song (as well as a great groove!)”

Goat Girl have released new song ‘The Crack’. “‘The Crack’ emerged from an imagined post-apocalyptic world whereby people flee into space for a new life on an un-ruined planet, as the result of the pillaging of Planet Earth”, say the band.

Eyehategod have released new single ‘High Risk Trigger’. The track is taken from new album ‘A History Of Nomadic Behavior’, which is set for release on 12 Mar. “We’re not a political band, but it was hard not to be affected by the news from the past year”, says vocalist Mike IX Williams. “During this recording, I thought a lot about how stupid humanity has become and how America is now completely divided with these people who don’t believe in science and blindly follow liars and nonsensical ideologies. Some of those feelings may have found their way into these songs, but it is mostly subliminal”.
