FM Management and Hard Impact Artist Management have added another act to their rosters.

The companies announced through a news release sent Wednesday that they have come to terms with hard rock band Colt48.  The London-based duo originally formed in 2017 and released its third EP Negatives on March 29.  The record, which was co-produced by Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Trivium) and Chris Clancy (Mutiny Within, Wearing Scars), was preceded by two other EPs, I and II.

Hard Impact Artist Management Co-Founder Maurizio Iacono (who is also a former member of famed hard rock band Kataklysm) talked about hearing Negatives in a brief statement, noting the EP had an immediate impact on him.

“Colt48 landed on my desk via newnowned UK producers Chris Clancy and Colin Richardson,” Iacono said.  “the moment i listened to their music, I was immediately hooked by the catchy riffs and vocal harmonies.  I’m excited to begin work with Colt48 alongside our partners at FM Management. Good vibes all around.”

The band debuted the the latest single from Negatives, ‘Out Of Habit‘ on March 22.  Its debut came a little more than a month after the band debuted the video for the EP’s lead single, ‘Disconnected.’  Both songs’ arrangements will appeal to fans of Breaking Benjamin, while the songs’ lyrical themes will have a wider appeal.

The act’s members — Adam Jerome (vocals, guitar) and Matt Savini (programming, drums) — were upbeat as they talked in the news release, about joining both companies’ rosters.

“Colt48 are super excited to be working alongside FMM and Hard Impact!,” the pair said in the statement.  “We’re a fan of how they work and the artists on their rosters, and are looking forward to taking Colt48 to a truly worldwide audience.”

FM Management Manager/Partner Dino Kourelis was just as upbeat as the members of Colt48 in talking about the band’s addition to the company’s artist roster in a statement released through a separate statement.

“We are excited to partner with good friends Hard Impact again to help Colt48 continue to grow and become an international force,” Kourelis said.  “At first listen, we knew there was something special about Colt48.  Their unique, contemporary, melodic sound will be a breath of fresh air in the rock world.”
