Sex Pistols sign new record deal ahead of 'Never Mind The Bollocks' re-release

Sex Pistols have signed a new record deal ahead of releasing an expanded and repackaged version of 'Never Mind The Bollocks'.

The punk legends have inked a deal with Universal Music Catalogue UK to put out a 35th anniversary edition of their classic 1977 album. Other events and releases, currently under wraps, are being planned throughout the year.

Commenting, frontman Johnny Rotten said: "Music can be great, when done by the great. The Sex Pistols are the greatest. Universal now has a trophy room, music is the imitation of nature, the Sex Pistols are nature, so please give generously. Thank you."

Karen Simmonds from the label added: "To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the Sex Pistols catalogue is every music lover’s dream. We’re looking forward to working with the band and celebrating their impact on worldwide culture."
