Deal Made For Shrapnel Records' Back Catalogue

(Classic Rock) The Orchard have snapped up the rights to Shrapnel Records' back catalogue, it's been announced. As part of the deal, The Orchard will oversee physical and digital distribution of Shrapnel's 322 album archive, which includes music by Marty Friedman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Richie Kotzen, Tony MacAlpine, Greg Howe, Jason Becker and Vinnie Moore.

Shrapnel Records' founder Mike Varney says: "The distribution landscape has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, requiring greater staffing with expertise in digital distribution.

"Although the Shrapnel Label Group will continue making new records, the expanded distribution and accompanying administration of the back catalog was something we felt could be best served by a larger company."

He continues: "As a pioneer in digital distribution with a tremendous track record of more than 15 years, The Orchard was in a stronger position to effectively realize this for our catalogue." Read more here.
