Podcast: NDR speak to The Boxer Rebellion drummer Piers Hewitt

No Distance Records has spoken to some people across the industry - record labels, journalists, musicians, record store owners - to get some tips on how to be successful in this competitive business, stories from the front line, and also hear their views on the state of the current scene.

This edition sees us chat to Piers Hewitt, drummer with internationally successful The Boxer Rebellion - a band that were signed, dropped, and then rewrote the rule book for how to have a career in music as an unsigned act.

Early pioneers of the digital-only release strategy, the group became the first musical act in history to break into the Billboard Album Chart on a digital-only release with their second album 'Union'.

Piers talks about breaking through at Glastonbury, being signed by Alan McGee, borrowing money to play America after unexpectedly becoming huge, and so much more.
