Fortuna POP logoIndiepop label Fortuna POP! has announced it will close its doors after trading as an independent imprint for twenty years. 

Launched in 1995 by Sean Price the label has been a flagship for indiepop and post-punk and a home for bands including Martha, The Spook School, Evans the Death, Chorusgirl, Allo Darlin’, Milky Wimpshake, Darren Hayman, and Pete Astor.

Announcing the closure with a full page statement in the programme for last weekend’s Indietracks Festival Price wrote, “…Nothing lasts forever. After 20 years, 200 releases, a mountain of debt and very little sleep, Fortuna Pop! is drawing to a close.”

Fans and bands of the label have taken to social media to express their sadness at its passing. It celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a three day festival in Ramsgate during July.
