Teaming up with the fantastic and like-minded people at Independent Label Group (ILG), Xtra Mile will now be able to release records by their amazing and ever expanding roster across America and Canada. It follows a recent deal the label did with Kartel for distribution across all of Europe.
Launching the new partnership with ILG will be the release of the incredible new album by Future Of The Left. These Welsh rockers became one of the most talked about bands of the recent SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, playing to packed out venues and recruiting a new army of fans. Their new album 'the plot against common sense' will hit the shops on 12th June 2012.
Managing Director of Xtra Mile, Charlie Caplowe says: "Xtra Mile has been looking for the right Distribution and Marketing deal in North America for a while; Kenny Weagly and the team over at ILG were exactly what we were looking for to launch the label and great artists into this key territory for us. We're over the moon about finalising the deal and can't wait to get cracking!
We are fully charged to continue growing the band on the American side of the pond."
Kenny Weagly from ILG adds: "Everyone here at ILG is excited to have Xtra Mile join our family of labels. We respect what Charlie Caplowe and Xtra Mile have been building in the UK, and are looking forward to helping them continue to grow the label and their associated artists in North America."
Born from a passion for music and a strong DIY ethic, Xtra Mile Recordings started in 2003 to release albums by post-hardcore band Million Dead and rock outfit Reuben. After receiving critical acclaim for both albums, the label slowly began to grow and year on year the roster expanded, playing host to an eclectic array of emerging and established acts, that include Frank Turner, The Xcerts, Crazy Arm, Far, I Am The Avalanche, Against Me!, Future Of The Left, Dave Hause, Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun, Fighting Fiction and Straight Lines plus many more.
Look out for new releases in North America by The Xcerts, Crazy Arm, Mull Historical Society and Sophie Madeleine in the coming months.
