ProgRock Records and Progress Records are proud to announce their new strategic partnership where ProgRock Records will distribute various Progress Records titles beginning in summer 2008 starting with the Magic Pie releases Motions Of Desire and Circus Of Life (www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=98) followed quickly by the long awaited self-titled release from Unifaun (www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=99). ProgRock Records has commissioned the acclaimed distributor Ryko to extend its reach into all of the major chains and online shops in North America.

Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records had this to say: "Hansi and I have been friends since my early days of founding ProgRock Records and he has been a great partner for selling our music in Scandinavia, it seemed time to return the favor and help his label get a broader North American audience, and I?m very happy to be doing this now with him.?

Hansi Cross, President of Progress Records adds, "Here at Progress Records we highly value partners who have integrity and the ability to make things happen. During the years we have been working with Shawn there has been no problems. Integrity and an ability to make things happen is what Shawn stands for. We are happy about this next step in our partnership."
