Punk rock legends SEX PISTOLS have signed with Universal. The back-catalog deal will cover the world excluding North America. An “expanded and repackaged edition” of the band’s “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols” album will be released later this year as the band and their new label mark the 35th anniversary of the landmark LP. There will also be other releases throughout 2012 and beyond.
“To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the SEX PISTOLS catalogue is every music lover’s dream,” said Universal‘s Karen Simmonds.”We’re looking forward to working with the band and celebrating their impact on worldwide culture.”
Famous for inspiring a generation to rise against the musical establishment in the late 1970s, the SEX PISTOLS changed the face of music and popular culture overnight with one of the most influential and controversial records in British music history. 35 years after its release, “Never Mind The Bollocks” and the SEX PISTOLS‘ legacy continues to grow as new generations discover its powerful message and still relevant, seminal songs.
