Babyshambles Signs £1 million Record Contract

Parlophone have aparently paid £1 million to sign former Libertines frontman Peter Doherty and his band Babyshambles.

Kevin McCabe (Parlophone) : "It's true that Pete and Babyshambles have been given the record deal - I can't confirm the specific details as to whether it's a three album deal, but he has signed."

Miles Leonard (Parlophone) : “We’re extremely pleased to be welcoming such a vibrant and talented band into the Parlophone label. Babyshambles, justifiably, have a great reputation for crafting some of the most exciting music around today, and in Peter Doherty they have one of the best songwriters of his generation. Parlophone have a long history of working with the best British bands, from Radiohead to Blur to Coldplay, and we see Babyshambles very much as continuing this tradition.”

Peter Doherty and Babyshambles celebrated by playing a festive gig in New York at the Rhythm Factory.
