Black Kids have just announced that they are joining the Columbia Records family and will be releasing their album "Partie Traumatic" through the label. They join the Almost Gold family outside of North America too...so its one big Sony party!
Columbia has gotten a bit cooler over the years thanks to Almost Gold and a few key Columbia releases. Congrats to them...I guess they are the new home for bands that should have stayed indie.
