Wind-up Records recently completed a deal to sell its legacy master recordings to The Bicycle Music Company, the Concord Music Group and their affiliates. The library includes master recordings, albums and multimedia produced by Wind-up and its artists over a 16-year period, including seventy-six RIAA gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond award certifications from artists that include Creed, Drowning Pool, Evanescence, Finger Eleven, Seether and many more.
"Today is a great day for Wind-up and our amazing group of artists,” said Wind-Up CEO & President Ed Vetri about the move. “Our roster of platinum, multi-platinum and diamond artists will now be able to call Concord and Bicycle their new home. I am confident with the experience of their staffs and scale of the combined companies our artists will find continued growth and achieve even greater levels of success. The future of Wind-up is diverse, exciting and strong. We continue to build our strength as an artist-driven independent label with our growing roster of amazing new talent with the goal of developing career artists."
Wind-up Records currently has a roster of over fifteen acts including Civil Twilight, Jillette Johnson, The Griswolds, The Virginmarys, Young Guns, Strange Talk, The Revivalists, James Durbin, Five for Fighting, Scott Stapp, The Darkness, Crobot, Filter, Genevieve and Aranda. The company now owns countless masters copyrights; it also includes a management company with a dozen clients, a publishing operation and a merchandising company.
