Warpaint sign artist services deal with Caroline International

Warpaint have announced a global artist services deal with Universal’s Caroline International. The company will provide marketing, promotional and distribution services to the band.

The outfit’s Theresa Wayman says in a statement: “[Caroline co-MDs] Jim Chancellor, Michael Roe and their team have long reputations for being great ‘record people’. We’re very excited to open new doors, make new sounds and pave new roads with Caroline International”.

Chancellor adds: “We here at Caroline International are beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with Warpaint, who are one of the finest bands in the world right now. We’re really looking forward to helping the rest of the world fall in love with them”.

You might argue that the world already fell in love with Warpaint through the three albums they’ve released to date through Rough Trade, and it’s that which has enabled them to go the artist services route on this record, rather than signing a more conventional record deal. But Chancellor isn’t entirely clear where he means by “the rest of the world”, so it’s hard to say.

The band’s most recent album, ‘Heads Up’, was released in 2016.
