Platinum PR has issued the following announcement:
Independent Record Label Nominated for Record Label of the Year in the TBFM 2013 Industry Awards!
With its growing roster of internationally-hailed bands, Ripple Music has signed European press relations specialist, Platinum PR to handle its growing demand for European publicity and tour support.
Hamburg, Germany-based Platinum PR is an independent PR agency who specializes in European & UK publicity for bands with loud guitars! Founded in 2010 by former Tiefdruck-Musik publicity powerhouse Mona Miluski, Platinum PR boasts an intimate roster of well respected, underground artists and musically diverse talent with DIY ethics. With the prowess to represent high quality music – especially from the stoner, sludge, doom & heavy rock underground scene – Platinum PR’s passion, drive and love for heavy rock has been a driving force behind all their work.
To the current artist roster of Platinum PR belong bands such as Alunah (UK), Moonbow (US), Satellite Beaver (PL), Dad Maria (GER), & Lofft (GER), Platinum PR now also proudly represents the PR for US heavy rock label Ripple Music and its artists.
Ripple Music has been making a big splash in Europe and the U.K. The California-based heavy rock label has already been recognized as one of the world’s leading labels for 70s-tinged retro-heavy rock, and has garnered accolades and appreciation by rock fans for their quality of music and love of both vinyl and CD formats. The recent recipient of a nomination for Independent Record Label of the year in the prestigious TBFM 2013 Industry Awards, several Ripple artists have been making a huge splash in the European scene, touring regularly and playing all the major festivals. Bands like Mos Generator, Ape Machine, Stone Axe are no stranger to European shores (not to mention such 70s legends as Leaf Hound, Poobah and JPT Scare Band), and other Ripple artists like Trucker Diablo and Grifter are U.K. based and frequent performers on the U.K. and European Festival circuits. Add to that list, the smash success of Texan trio, Mothership, who’ll be hitting Europe this spring, and the need for a full-time press agent in Europe was apparent.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Mona and Platinum PR,” says Ripple Music´s CEO Todd Severin. “The high quality of the bands that choose to work with her speaks for itself, but most importantly – as a rocker herself – Mona really understand the needs of the heavy music community. She’s the best choice for us to spread the Ripple brand of heavy rock around the world.”
All Ripple Music releases are available at the Ripple Store and Ripple Music Bandcamp plus world-wide online and physical via Planetworks Entertainment (Europe), Nail Distribution (North America) and Code 7/Plastichead (U.K.).
