Victory Records has announced that it has entered into am exclusive, worldwide music merchandise distribution deal with Lafayette, LA-based Wilhelm Records.
Founded in mid-2015 by Dylan Frederick, it's a huge step forward for the label. Frederick commented: "Playing in bands over the years, I never thought I’d get too much into this side of the industry. Having Victory onboard with our future plans is exciting and very surreal. We plan to make our mark by putting out great music by hard working bands with the same vision."
Thus-far confirmed 2017 Wilhelm Records releases include: Hopes On Hold, Postcards From Jane, Mallory Run, American Pastime and Skylines.
Victory Records' founder Tony Brummel commented: "Dylan has a fantastic work ethic and reminds me of when I started Victory out of my closet in 1989. He is building his label and has a solid roster of developing bands. As so many labels in the independent community continue to get acquired it is important that we help develop and support those with the courage and passion to start new homes for artists. We have had the pleasure of helping labels like Rise Records, Standby Records and Sumerian get established from their beginnings along with many labels that we currently distribute. The independent fire still burns in many of us and I am glad to have another label join our family."
Other labels currently distrusted by Victory Records include: GMM, ISCREAM, Luxor, Mutant League, Standby, WAT and more.
