The Ministry Of Sound record company in Australia is rebranding as TMRW Music.

The label operated by Ministry Of Sound’s Australian business partners was not part of Sony Music’s acquisition of the UK-based Ministry label last year. Though the rebrand is as a result of that deal, which will also see the Ministry Of Sound compilations business in Australia now shift over to Sony Music.

The rest of what was Ministry Of Sound Recordings Australia will continue to operate as normal under the new TMRW Music name, and will still be headed up by Tim McGee, whose wider business – including Soapbox Events – will continue to run clubbing nights and events using the Ministry Of Sound brand.

Confirming this, McGee said yesterday: “We will continue to work with the Ministry Of Sound brand on the newly launched club at Ivy [in Sydney], which had a huge opening night with Peking Duk and Sandy Rivera, as well as other events such as the recently announced Ministry Of Sound Orchestrated shows in August”.

Meanwhile Jonathan Bevan, CEO of the Ministry Of Sound Group back in the UK, added, “Ministry Of Sound Group has had a long-standing relationship with Tim and Ministry Of Sound Australia and have always found them to be exceptional partners. We are excited about extending our partnership and about Soapbox Events’ plans for Ministry Of Sound branded events and the Ministry Of Sound Club at Ivy”.
