Texas-based independent record label Affiant Records has just announced signing a global distribution deal with FUGA, the leading technology, and services company for rightsholders. FUGA is the distributor to other major independent labels such as Epitaph Records and Better Noise Music. Affiant Records will greatly broaden its worldwide footprint in the music industry stemming from this alliance with FUGA.
Affiant Records, an independent label focused on artist development, was founded by entertainment attorney William J. Metzger, whose experience representing clients in the music industry has led him to find a passion for releasing music and media that is powerful and purposeful. Releasing rock and all subgenres of rock, the label is continually growing its roster with new signings and releases planned for 2023.
When asked about the new partnership, William J. Metzger said, “We are excited to be partnering with FUGA. FUGA’s stellar reputation with DSPs and hands-on worldwide marketing team will bring our current and future artists’ careers to new heights. Their team has been warm, welcoming, and exceptional. We are looking forward to a bright future with FUGA.”
