4AD, Play Louder, Sub Pop, Beggars Banquet, Rough Trade, Wiiija, XL, Warp, Wall Of Sound and Chemical Underground are just a small fraction of the labels affected in the UK, by the SonyDADC Warehouse fire. 165 labels in al have been affected, it also effects the majority of independent bands and artists.
Latest update – Sony DADC have actioned their Business Continuity Plan and are back up and running from a new control room in Enfield. PIAS continue to work with them to minimise the impact on the business, a number one priority for all labels and clients. SonyDADC have identified a temporary distribution partner and it is envisaged that they will be in a position to pick, pack and ship orders in the course of next week.
This follows an earlier statement regarding a fire last night at the Sony DADC warehouse, which services the physical distribution for PIAS in the UK and Ireland. PIAS’s UK offices in London and all other areas of our business are unaffected. More information will be communicated shortly to all our labels and partners
We wish to thank everyone for the overwhelming messages of support.
