SACRED OATH Frontman ROB THORNE Signs Worldwide Distribution Deal With ILS/Caroline/Universal For Vanity Label Angel Thorne Music

Heavy metal singer and guitarist Rob Thorne, of the band Sacred Oath, has just signed an exclusive 3-year worldwide distribution agreement with the Toronto-based ILS, making the entire catalog of his Angel Thorne Music record label available through Caroline/Universal.

This includes eight Sacred Oath albums, two albums recorded by Soundscape, three rock operas, and a brand new Sacred Oath album slated for 2015 release.

Angel Thorne Music plans to issue deluxe vinyl selections from the Sacred Oath catalog over the next three years in addition to two new Sacred Oath albums. They are also in the process of signing new up-and-coming artists, both in and out of the heavy metal genre.

“This is the deal I’ve been working toward for 20 years,” says Thorne, who started the label in 1994 as a means of acquiring more control over his recordings and copyrights.  “The promise of ‘do-it-yourself’ via the internet has been a tumultuous and often difficult ride, but I feel like I’m finally in a position to effectively market and distribute all of my recordings on a world market.”

ILS offers worldwide and/or by specific territory distribution via its sub distribution arrangements with Universal/Caroline. The role of ILS is to provide third party labels and significant self-represented artists a turnkey solution to the best possible distribution, marketing and promotion with optimum results. ILS is closely partnered with the top independent press, radio, and publicity agencies worldwide which can be tailored to augment our in-house services on a project-by-project basis.
