Victory Records has re-upped with Australian distributor Stomp, which also handles Sup Pop, Saddle Creek, Rykodisc and Metal Blade, among other indies. “Stomp is an aggressive, vibrant and entrepreneurial company built on the same ideals and no-nonsense values as Victory,” says Victory’s Tony Brummel, who’s never at a loss for words. “Our businesses have grown together over the years through hard work, passion, an ear to the street and the courage to challenge the old entertainment business rules. Both of our companies are poised for explosive growth in 2006. We are men at work burning the midnight oil.”
