More British India More British India

Melbourne band British India have signed recording and publishing deals with Liberation and Mushroom this morning, signing off on the contract with Mushroom Group Chairman Michael Gudinski.

The deal, which comes as the indie rock band look to their fourth album, has been described as "long term".

“We've never been opposed to signing with the right label, but in the past we did what we did out of necessity”, manager Glenn Goldsmith said today. “British India have been in discussions with Liberation and Mushroom for some time refining a deal that works for all parties and now we have one that we believe will create a very strong platform for us”.

Gudinski added, "I'm very proud of our track record of finding and developing new bands but British India are in the unique position of having released three very successful albums but they are still young enough and hungry enough to take it to the next level. This deal took some time to come together, but I am very happy with this signing. We all are because good things are worth waiting for."
