"We’re so excited to be on the same label as artists like Frank Turner and Beans On Toast. I’ve always really admired the work they have done over the years as an independent" - Ralph Pelleymounter, TKAK
Charlie Caplowe from Xtra Mile has added: “We are chuffed to bits to be working with TKAK. To see what they have achieved on their own is incredible and we are delighted to be working together with them to step things up even further and welcoming them into the XM clan.”
