Primary Wave Music has announced a partnership with alternative rock band Spin Doctors. The partnership will see Primary Wave partner with the band on their music publishing and artist royalties, as well as administering their upcoming album.

Through the partnership, the Spin Doctors will also have access to Primary Wave’s marketing team and publishing infrastructure, which includes digital strategy, licensing, sync opportunities, as well as film & TV production. The Grammy-nominated band has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide and performed more than 2,000 live shows.

Spin Doctors have toured with some of the biggest names in music including The Rolling Stones, Blues Traveler, and Phish. They’ve also performed at major music festivals including Woodstock, Glastonbury, and more over their 30-year history. Included in this deal are some of the band’s biggest hits across six studio albums such as “Two Princes,” “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues,” “What Time Is It?,” “Cleopatra’s Cat,” “You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast,” and more.

“Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” was the band’s debut single and reached the Top 20 upon release. The follow-up single “Two Princes” is the band’s most well-known track, soaring to the Top 10 after its release. It received a Grammy nomination for “Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group” in 1992. Propelled by the success of those two singles, their album Pocket Full of Kryptonite sold five million copies in the United States alone and landing at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

Spin Doctors have labored our entire career to create a catalog of super high caliber songs and we are absolutely certain it’s found the perfect partner to represent our catalog and continue to get our music out to the next generation and beyond,” says the band about the partnership with Primary Wave. “Thanks to everyone who has been involved along the way.”

“In the early 90s, during my law school days, I saw Spin Doctors at Nightingales multiple times,” adds Samantha Rhulen, Senior Vice President of Business & Legal Affairs at Primary Wave. “Never could I have imagined that 30 years later, I would be overseeing our partnership with the band here at Primary Wave. It has brought back a ton of memories for me, and I am thrilled they are now part of the PW family.”
