The Syndicate Makes a Major Splash on CMJ’s 2012 Overall Charts

As we look back on 2012 and prepare for The Syndicate’s 15th year in business, we’re really proud of the clients, artists and labels we’ve been fortunate to work with.  CMJ’s year-end charts have just been published, and it’s wonderful to see so many artists we’ve promoted on them!  This also comes hot on the heels of a great year for The Syndicate at the alternative specialty format.  We’re proud of our accomplishments across the board, but even more importantly, we’re proud to continue bringing this kind of high-caliber new music to forward-thinking radio stations throughout North America in the new year.

Our full rundown of highlights at college alternative, metal and everything in between follows below.  The number of weeks shows how long each record was on its respective chart; from this information, it’s clear that many of our biggest albums made a tremendous lasting impression at radio.

Congratulations to everyone who made CMJ’s overall charts for 2012!
