The cheekily-named Tiny Meat Gang — comprising creator duo Cody Ko and Noel Miller — have signed with illustrious record label Arista.
In addition to serving as a musical duo, Ko and Miller also host a podcast under the Tiny Meat Gang banner, and have also embarked on a nationwide comedy tour. Under Arista’s tutelage, however, the duo are set to release their third as-yet-unnamed EP later this year, Billboard reports. The group formed in 2017 and has dropped two EPs to date: Bangers & Ass (2017) and Locals Only (2018). The Gang has continued to release new music this year, including highly-viewed music videos for the singles “Walk Man” and “Short Kings Anthem.”
“We couldn’t be more pumped to join the Arista family,” Ko and Miller told Billboard in a statement. “David [Massey, president and CEO of Arista] and Matt [D’Arduini, SVP of A&R] and the rest of the team are the best in the biz and have launched careers for some of the most successful acts in the world. As we continue to grow, we wanted to find a home that is as dedicated to our music as we are, and we’re confident that they are the best people to help take us to the next level.”
Both Ko and Miller rose to fame on Vine, but have since established a formidable presence on YouTube, where Ko counts 4 million subscribers and Miller counts 1.6 million. They are repped by Fullscreen, UTA, and the law firm Morris Yorn.
Sony-owned Arista, founded by music mogul Clive Davis, was relaunched by Massey in 2018. The label has repped iconic artists like Whitney Houston, The Kinks, Patti Smith, and The Grateful Dead.
