U.K. buzz act and modern girl group the Pipettes have linked with Interscope Records imprint Cherrytree in the United States. The act released its debut, "We Are the Pipettes," in July of last year on London-based indie Memphis Industries.
Cherrytree, which is also home to Canadian singer/songwriter Feist, is planning to re-release "We Are the Pipettes" this summer, according to label sources. It is not yet known if the U.S. edition will contain extra tracks not available on the U.K. version.
The Pipettes will play their first major North American shows in March. The act has a sold-out date March 13 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, and then will play multiple showcases at the South by Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas, which runs March 14-18. The Pipettes are also expected to announce a Los Angeles date.
