Kaiser Chiefs Sign Global Publishing Deal With Imagem Music

IMAGEM MUSIC has entered into a global publishing deal with multi-BRIT AWARD-winning band KAISER CHIEFS.
The news coincides with the announcement that the band has also renewed their record deal with FICTION RECORDS/CAROLINE, as they return to the studio to record their sixth studio album with producer BRIAN HIGGINS (PET SHOP BOYS, KYLIE MINOGUE).
IMAGEM MUSIC has a long-standing relationship with the band via their original publishing agreement when they acquired RONDOR MUSIC. Effective immediately, the new deal will see IMAGEM publish the band globally, representing all future copyrights in addition to existing copyrights in the UK and EUROPE.
Having sold 6 million records over the last 10 years, with countless Top 10 U.K. hits, the band has remained one of the U.K.'s premier rock bands and continue to be a significant force -- earlier this year they played a sold-out BRITISH arena tour including THE O2 ARENA in LONDON, and their current album, "Education, Education, Education & War," debuted at #1 in the U.K. Album Chart.
IMAGEM MUSIC U.K. Managing Director KIM FRANKIEWICZ commented, "Our history with the KAISERS goes back to the very beginning at IMAGEM. As a band, they have evolved and the spirit of their songwriting has an unbound energy. I'm delighted to be working with them once more, this time on a global basis, working alongside our offices in EUROPE and NORTH AMERICA, as well as our partners throughout the world."
REDLIGHT MANAGEMENT's JAMES SANDOM added: "We're delighted to sign a direct deal for KAISER CHIEFS. IMAGEM MUSIC has proven a dedicated and creative home for the band since the acquisition of RONDOR MUSIC in 2008, helping secure a number of substantial licenses and showing the attention to detail any artist would wish for from their publisher."
