On a personal level it is a huge thrill to have our new Australian company bring such an internationally relevant catalog to the incredible global BMG team.”

The band said in a statement: “We’re really happy to have struck a worldwide deal with BMG. Heath Johns backed us before we released our first album so it also feels great to be working with him again.”
