The Dirty Youth unveiled as Marshall Records' first signing

Last year Marshall Amplification announced plans to launch its very own record label, now its first signing has been revealed.

Welsh rock band The Dirty Youth are the first group to join Marshall on its adventure into the world of music labels.

The band expressed their excitement at the news on their Facebook page yesterday, revealing that they’ll be heading to the iconic Abbey Road Studios to record an album: “We would like to thank everyone for standing by us over the years. This is a dream come true and we can't wait to show you guys what we've been working on!”

Speaking exclusively to MI Pro sister title Music Week, the band’s manager, Rob Ferguson, said: “This is a milestone for them and a milestone for us. We spoke to various major labels, but it’s a very cagey world out there with majors and they don’t take risks like they did in the old days.

“Marshall seemed to have a very different approach. They are a global brand as a result of their core business, so their reach is phenomenal and their motive for being involved in music is championing new talent.”

Record producer Rob Cass and former IRS Records man Steven Tannett are heading up Marshall Records.

“When we met the band we really liked their energy,” said Tannett. “We thought they’d be a great fit for us. Now we’re about to go into Abbey Road and put some of this magic down.”
