So Recordings have today (January 29) announced the signing of multi-platinum alt.rock group Placebo for the band’s next studio album.
Speaking about the signing of Placebo, Alex Weston at Riverman Management – who have managed the group for their entire careers – said: “After many years of searching for our soulmates, we found them in So Recordings. A surprise perhaps but we couldn’t be happier to start the next phase in Placebo’s career with this team led by Adam Greenup and Reynold D’Silva. Good, honest, creative and inspiring people who we know are 100% committed to the band and this new album. It feels like home.”
Reynold D’Silva, CEO of Silva Screen Music Group added: “The band and their management could have signed with at least ten other labels and indeed they were pursued aggressively by all of them. To say we are over the moon is an understatement. Having heard the new tracks, this eighth album sees the band at their creative peak and cement their standing as a seminal band in the rock world.”
Last year, Enter Shikari announced they had entered into partnership with So Recordings. Part of the newly formed Silva Screen Label Group, So Recordings has achieved four Top 10 records and several Top 40 albums with a roster that includes Shikari as well as Deaf Havana, Band Of Skulls, The Lafontaines, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Demob Happy and Turbowolf.
