Ladies and gentlemen, we are extremely pleased to announce that DON BROCO have been signed to Search and Destroy Records, a new venture between Raw Power Management and Sony Music. The first single from Don Broco’s debut album will be released May 20th. This is such exciting times! Congratulations to the boys!
The article below comes from Music Weekly:
“Sony Music and management group Raw Power have announced a new rock-centric joint venture label, Search & Destroy.
The imprint is the creation of Raw Power CEO Craig Jennings and Sony Music UK Chairman Nick Gatfield, and will be headed up by ex-Sony A&R deputy Tristan Lillingston.
Search & Destroy will be geared to break new acts. In a statement to press, Sony said: “Raw Power Management’s expertise in the rock market coupled with Sony Music’s marketing, sales and distribution muscle will provide a solid platform to nurture and develop young songwriters, musicians and producers who are the lifeblood of our industry.”
The first two acts signed to the label are hotly-tipped Bedford based 4-piece Don Broco, and Sheffield’s While She Sleeps.
Craig Jennings said: “Having grown up listening to so many great Sony artists, it’s a great privilege to be starting a joint venture with Nick Gatfield and his team that I look forward to lasting for many years to come. Some of my favourite artists and releases have been with Sony, including the Clash and Iggy and the Stooges, from whom we have borrowed the ‘Search and Destroy’ moniker from, it being the opening song on the classic ‘Raw Power’ album.
“Our first signings to Search & Destroy have both made amazing albums and we look forward to building both them across all platforms, and rising to the challenges that are so prevalent in the modern music industry, whilst continuing to take care of the fundamental artist development areas that are so important to rock acts.“
Nick Gatfield added: “Craig Jennings is widely acknowledged as the industry’s leading rock management and artist development expert – no one understands the artists, music and global marketing of the genre better. The creation of the Search & Destroy label is the natural extension and outlet for his knowledge and expertise and will undoubtedly be the leading rock label in the market. I’m delighted Craig has chosen Sony to partner with on the venture and I look forward to global success with him in the near future”.
Not as exciting, but the label and management (as do the band) approve of F Yeah Don Broco and our work. This is such an awesome time to be a Broco fan and we hope you join us on this ride!
