Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), the US-based division of Universal Music Group, and Round Hill Records have signed a deal for UMe to become the global distributor of US punk outfit The Offspring’s catalogue, effective immediately.
The multi-year agreement includes six studio albums and the band’s Greatest Hits package: Ixnay on the Hombre (1997); Americana (1998); Conspiracy of One (2000); Splinter (2003); Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace (2008); Days Go By (2012); and Greatest Hits.
In most territories outside the US, UMe will distribute The Offspring’s catalogue through UMG’s Caroline International.
Bruce Resnikoff, president and CEO of UMe, said “We look forward to working closely with Round Hill Records and The Offspring to introduce new audiences to their music while maintaining the integrity of their indie punk rock spirit.”
“We’re really happy to have Bruce Resnikoff and the team at UME work with Round Hill Records on these classic Offspring recordings,” added Josh Gruss, CEO, Round Hill Music.
The Offspring’s catalogue has sold more than 40 million records worldwide to date.
