Victory Records has signed an exclusive North American distribution deal with new L.A.-based DVD imprint XDOANEX.

The distribution deal marks the formal launch of the company, started by videographer and filmmaker Darren Doane. Though Doane has worked mostly with underground hardcore and punk acts -- he has more than 200 videos to his credit -- he has also collaborated with more mainstream bands, such as Blink-182, Unwritten Law and Jimmy Eat World.

XDOANEX will release "The Shape of Videos to Come" -- featuring acts like the Juliana Theory and Spitalfield -- in November. Four additional DVD titles are expected for the first quarter of 2005.

Victory is distributed by RED.
