The Press Release:
Concord is pleased to announce it has acquired renowned independent rock, metal, emo and hardcore punk music company Victory Records and Another Victory Publishing from Chicago-based founder and CEO Tony Brummel. The acquisition includes approximately 4,500 master recordings and 3,500 compositions. A true “indie-of-indies”, Victory was started by Brummel in 1989 in his hometown of Chicago with an initial investment of less than $1,000 and from the beginning of its days has been self-funded.
Victory’s master recording catalog includes A Day To Remember, Hawthorne Heights, Thursday and Silverstein. The completion of this deal also brings all of Victory’s incredible legacy catalog under one roof at Concord with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Atreyu, Bayside, Counterparts and Between the Buried and Me.
Victory has always been home to artists that define a segment of rock and roll culture. These artists, with the help of the Victory team and Brummel’s vision, have sold over 15,000,000 albums over the last 30 years and have garnered the catalog six RIAA certified Gold albums, six RIAA certified Gold singles, one RIAA certified platinum single, two BPI certified silver albums and one Canada Music Canada certified Gold album.

The morning coffee was interrupted by the sad news about the Swedish Hard Rock band Sister Sin who have decided to call it a day and disband. The official statement was found on their Facebook Page
“As of today, November 7th 2015, SISTER SIN is no more.
We know this may come as a surprise to many of you; honestly, it kinda took us by surprise too.
What was supposed to be a short eight weeks break, suddenly & unfortunately, turned in to the demise of the band.
– We have been touring and recording in a relentless schedule since 2008 and I guess we burned the candle in both ends and hit a wall. When we finally had the opportunity to step back and get some perspective, the motivation for some members in the band just wasn’t there any more… Continue reading Sweden’s Sister Sin Calls It A Day (2002-2015)→
Winter is sure going to get a lot hotter now that Sister Sin’s awesome lead singer Liv Jagrell will be gracing the pages of this months issue of Penthouse Magazine. Yep, you read that correctly….Liv Jagrell is going to be in Penthouse but please don’t lose your sh*t about it because its a part of their “Sirens” column and is a very tastefully done shoot with an article about the band. Check out more below.
As you can tell, Penthouse Magazine is very excited about getting Liv Jagrell into the issue. “Liv Jagrell of Sweden’s Sister Sin has powerful pipes, a hot body, and can definitely kick your ass,” Penthouse writes. “With the band’s fifth album, ‘Black Lotus,’ and a fall European tour under her belt, she’s poised to dominate the U.S. heavy-metal scene … Jagrell’s voice transcends most modern metal singers, invoking more the classic, soaring sound of Judas Priest’s Rob Halford or maybe even Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. When she’s not recording or on the road, her ‘day job’ is just as metal—she’s a personal trainer who can kick your ass and make you do squats till you puke.” Continue reading Rawr; Sister Sin’s Liv Jagrell Is In Penthouse Magazine→
