TALENTFILTER ARTIST MOVES FROM INDIE TO MAJOR LABEL! -- Los Angeles band The Airborne Toxic Event, first written about here back in January 2008, have been scooped up from Shout! Factory/Majordomo to Island/IDJMG. Singer Mikel Jollett tells L.A. blog Buzz Bands, "It's a great deal, we're pumped up." And what of the folks at Majordomo? "Majordomo has a really good stake in this thing — they were very much a partner," Jollett said. "It's a good situation for everyone involved."

Congrats to the band (and the folks at Shout! Factory, Majordomo, and HITS Magazine / The MGMT Company!)
