After we announced last month that Beats Music acquired Topspin, we started looking for a partner to continue operating the Topspin Platform. One partner quickly emerged as a leading candidate given their strong vision and commitment to maintaining and investing in our ecommerce and marketing capabilities. Today, we are happy to announce that the platform has been acquired by Cinder Block/BandMerch, an industry leading entertainment licensing and merchandising company. We are excited to be partnering with Cinder Block/BandMerch given their deep resources and experience in the music industry.
The collective roster of the companies comprise leading sports and music entertainment artists including The Who, Manchester United, Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, Kid Rock, Rise Against, All Time Low, Coheed and Cambria, Death Cab for Cutie, Misfits, Postal Service, The National, Flogging Molly and many others. The combined companies will operate out of BandMerch’s headquarters in Burbank, CA.
For Topspin Platform customers there will not be any changes or interrupted service. You can continue using the Topspin Platform for selling, emailing, and fan-base management. In the coming months, we expect to add several new features and services to the platform to make it even more powerful for connecting artists with their fans.
