Notting Hill Music Group has signed Philadelphia rockers Silvertide to a worldwide publishing deal. The pact covers future works and catalog, including the band's debut 2004 album, "Show & Tell" (J/BMG), and latest single "Blue Jeans," which is No. 23 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Silvertide will open for Mötley Crüe on some dates of the "Carnival of Sins" tour and will support 3 Doors Down on their U.S tour starting in April.

Silvertide, fronted by Walt Lafty, plays the Curtain Club tonight (March 10) in Dallas and Tiffany's tomorrow in San Antonio.

London-based Notting Hill was formed in 1990 as the international-repertoire division of Japan's Nippon Television Music. The unit became Notting Hill Music after a management buyout in 1993 by current president Peter Chalcraft, Andy McQueen (now chairman) and David Loader (managing director).

In recent months, the publishing firm has ramped up its presence in the rock arena, striking agreements with Funeral For A Friend, Motorhead, Sepultura, Killswitch and Engage, among others.
