Imagem signs new global publishing deal with Kaiser Chiefs

Independent publisher Imagem has inked a new global publishing deal with multi-Brit award winning band, Kaiser Chiefs.

The news coincides with the announcement that the band has also renewed their record deal with Fiction Records/Caroline, as they return to the studio to record their sixth studio album with Brian Higgins (Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue).

Imagem Music’s original agreement with the band began when the publisher acquired Rondor Music in 2008.

The new deal, effective immediately, will see Imagem publish the band globally, representing all future copyrights in addition to existing copyrights in the UK and Europe.

Having sold 6 million records over the last 10 years, the Kaiser Chiefs recently played a sold out UK arena tour including The O2 Arena in London.

Their latest album, Education, Education, Education & War, was a UK No.1 last year.
