Lancashire indie band The Lottery Winners have signed to Warner’s Sire label, snapped up by Sire chief Seymour Stein himself.

“For us to be added to Seymour’s star-studded list of artists is an absolute honour”, says guitarist Rob Lally. “He has signed many of our influences over the years. We are very excited to continue our hard work along side him”.

Frontman Thom Rylance adds: “It’s hard for me to get my head around how much of a big deal this actually is. I’ve barely had time to process it. It’s such a privilege to sign with a company as prestigious as Warner, and I’m very excited about our music being released in the States, as well as here. I’ve always wanted to go to New York!”

Meanwhile, Stein himself says: “It’s so refreshing to see a band that have both truly amazing songwriting AND a unique and exceptional live show. I expect great things from this very special bunch of musicians”. Time for one quick pun, Seymour? “I feel like it’s Sire that’s won the lottery with this great signing”. Perfect.

The band will be heading out on a UK tour in September and October. Here’s the video for new single ‘Young Love’:
