Northern Irish three-piece General Fiasco has become the second signing to Infectious Records, the London-based independent recently re-launched by Warner Music U.K. managing director, Korda Marshall.

The band formed in early 2007 and has since scored support slots with the Wombats, the Pigeon Detectives and the Enemy plus U.K. festival appearances including Reading and Leeds. Its debut single, "Rebel Get By" was released in the U.K. last November as a seven-inch single through London independent Another Music = Another Kitchen.

According to the band's co-manager Jamie Oborne of All On Red Management, the Infectious deal "felt like a natural step following the last 12 months of groundwork my co-manager Jimmy Devlin and I have undertaken with the boys. Korda's reputation speaks for itself and needless to say we are all very much looking forward to working with him and his team."

General Fiasco is currently finishing its debut album in Northern Ireland. The band plays Glastonbury Festival in June 2009 as part of a summer tour that stretches through to September.

Marshall founded Infectious Records, in 1994. The label produced names like Muse, Ash, Garbage and Paul Oakenfold and became a Warner imprint in 2003 when Warner Music U.K. acquired Infectious' parent Mushroom Records U.K., where Marshall was managing director.

Marshall re-launched the dormant label as an independent in Feb. 2009 and subsequently announced Melbourne, Australia outfit the Temper Trap as the label's first signing.
