Work will continue with these acts as well as Trans-Siberian Orchestra and pop singer Katy Tiz.
Republic C.E.O. and Co-President Monte Lipman said: "LAVA is an incredible partner for us. Jason [Flom’s] commitment to finding and developing talent remains paramount to the label’s success. We've always shared passion for breaking new acts, and working together has been immensely rewarding."
