  • (1888PressRelease) July 17, 2020 - Toronto, Canada - Less than one month after their contract expired with an indie label powerhouse, New Jersey based rockers Promised Land have signed a new worldwide recording, distribution and promotion pact with Toronto's AMG. As part of a new multi-year deal, Promised Land has teamed up with AMG/SONY as their new label home.

    "I'm ecstatic to announce that our new musical home will be AMG with affiliated SONY Music Group Distribution," Lead vocalist Kenny Munson wrote. "Over the years, Mark Berry, who produced, engineered & mixed several of our earlier recordings, has been an incredible partner and friend. It's so thrilling for Promised Land that Mark, and the entire worldwide AMG team, will be our new label family moving forward for our music catalogue, including the Arthur Kill recordings."

    While specific terms of Promised Lands’ new deal were not made public, there are a few important takeaways. Firstly, they will continue to own all of their master recordings moving forward, something Munson says is "incredibly exciting." Munson further states, "It's an honor to be associated with Mark Berry, a seasoned veteran of the music business. Mark produced the "Closer to Free" album which yielded the Number 1 College Rock Radio charter, "Closer To Free" & the Depeche Mode remake of the classic "It's No Good". AMG has a terrific group of talented writers, recording artists and promotional staff internationally. Over the past few years we have been recording great, well written songs and it is going to be a thrill to see the response from the listeners on Spotify, the biggest radio station in the history of music. This will be a whole new opportunity to reach out to new fans all over the world."

    AMG Chairman Mark S. Berry said, “Few artists approach Promised Land’s combination of success and creative brilliance and I am excited to be working with Kenny again. They are multi-talented individuals and the team of Ken Munson Mike and Rob Petillo can achieve anything especially with their outstanding songwriting capabilities. I have enormous respect for Kenny,in particular for his use of his hard-earned influence to promote positive change. Because of their commitment to fellow artists, not only did he want to partner with a company that understood his creative vision and had the resources and expertise to execute globally on his behalf, he also sought a partner whose approach to artists was aligned with his. With these shared beliefs all of us here at AMG are enormously proud to be embarking on the next chapter of Promised Land’s career.”

    Munson closed his note with a "heartfelt thanks" to AMG’s Berry. "We are extremely grateful to get to do what we love, especially with the people we’ve been fortunate enough to work with," he shared. "In closing, we feel very blessed to have the opportunity to be part of the AMG family and again working with Mark. We will enjoy the ride."
