Ginger Gets Back A Round


Label moves to the next level

Round Records Records is the new record label from Ginger Wildheart – a home for Hey! Hello!, Mutation, live albums and DVDs from The Wildhearts and more. It’s arguably Ginger’s most ambitious project to date; moving from stand-alone individual releases to a fully-fledged record label. PledgeMusic is proud to be partnering with Ginger and Round Records Records for fans to pre-order new releases and access a host of extra and exclusive offers.

Ginger and PledgeMusic have history. In August 2011, Ginger launched his Triple Album Project via Pledgemusic. The pitch was to record a 30-song triple album and the campaign met with immediate success, hitting 100% of the funding target within six hours of launching. The resulting album released in 2012 in single and triple album format was a huge success for Ginger and won him the Classic Rock magazine ‘Event of the Year’ award. Subsequent projects with PledgeMusic have delivered equally stunning results; the last one being a book entitled ‘Songs & Words’, which featured archive photos and the stories behind Ginger‘s songs as only Ginger could tell them.

To start things, the Round Records Records launch includes the following;
  • Hey! Hello – Hey! Hello! Too! album (released 3rd June 2016)
  • The Wildhearts – PHUQ Live (released 1st July 2016)
  • Ginger Wildheart – Solo Album Boxset (released 5th August 2016)
  • Mutation – Mutation III album (released 2nd September 2016)


Round Records allows me to further explore what can be achieved using the direct-to-fan formula.

My last project was a fan club, something that I had always enjoyed as a kid. When I realised that a lot of people didn’t even know what a fan club was the logical next step was to introduce a record label whose logo was as iconic and the music it releases. 

Growing up with StiffSub Pop and Def Jam I always loved the idea of a ‘fair’ record company, but I’ve had precious little personal experience in record companies being anything more than a smokescreen run by corporate suits with very little understanding let alone love for the music.

This time around I’m the boss, and this boss is all about the music.”
