Victory Records Joins A2IM
Tony Brummel, founder of one of the country's top independent record companies, Victory Records, has announced that Victory will join the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM).
The American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) is comprised of a broad coalition of music labels that promotes the interests and goals of the independent music community. Formed in 2005, the A2IM now boasts over 200 member labels, working together to support fair trade practices, including equal access to the media and the marketplace, that would put it on a level playing field with the largest companies in the industry. A2IM is also actively involved in the exploration of new and innovative forms of music exposure and distribution.
Victory has accomplished something independents rarely, if ever do: selling six figures of a new release out of the box, which it has done twice in the last two years with Taking Back Sunday and Hawthorne Heights. Victory is also the only pure independent label to have had two, back-to-back, top-10 albums on the Billboard Top 200 in 2006.
Victory's roster has grown to represent all of rock's varied and eclectic sub-genres, with the goal of being the best rock record label on the planet. Victory is also the only label with its own social networking community, VictorME.com, and its own bi-monthly television program, VicTorV (also available as a free podcast at VicTorV.tv).
"I hope that by joining I can help be a catalyst for some kind of change. I am looking forward to getting in the trenches with my indie comrades," Victory Records Founder Tony Brummel states. "There is a lot of work to do."
"Victory Records is fueled by passion and commitment, the very embodiment of the independent spirit," states Acting President Peter Gordon. "We are pleased to welcome them into the A2IM community."
