DOWNTOWN MUSIC PUBLISHING have entered into a worldwide administration deal with current chart-topping alternative rock band, NEEDTOBREATHE. The announcement comes with their recently released sixth studio album "H A R D L O V E," entering the BILLBOARD 200 at #2.
DOWNTOWN will administer the GRAMMY-nominated band's six studio albums to date and all future works.
Said the band's lead vocalist BEAR: "We're really excited to be teaming up with DOWNTOWN as we release this new album. They've built a great, forward-thinking company and we're proud to join their roster."
"H A R D L O V E" has enjoyed a steady climb at multiple radio formats and was recently featured in MICROSOFT's new ad campaign. The track's success follows the band's highest charting single to date -- "Brother (feat. GAVIN DEGRAW)" - which was recently certified gold.
FOUNDATIONS ARTIST MANAGEMENT's STEVE BURSKY added: "I've long-admired the team at DOWNTOWN and the work they do on behalf of their writers. I couldn't be happier to be in business with such a talented group of people."
DOWNTOWN EVP JEDD KARANCHA commented on the deal "We're thrilled to partner with such a creative and hard-working band and their impressive team. With each release, they take their music to new heights and we feel fortunate to join them as they share this great album with the world."
