K2 Agency has acquired UK rival Eccentric Gent Organisation (EGO), bringing over company founder Jim Morewood and agent Yerry Stetter and EGO’s largely heavy metal-focused roster.

The acquisition of EGO follows last year’s buy-out of Factory Music, and sees the company’s roster of artists, which includes HIM, Fear Factory, Devin Townsend and the Rasmus, also move to London-based K2.

Morewood says: “Yerry and I are delighted to be joining the formidable team at K2 and we look forward to an exciting future with John, having previously worked with him at the now legendary Helter Skelter Agency.”

K2 founder John Jackson adds: “I am delighted to be working with Jim again and we all look forward to welcoming Yerry to K2. Their combined skills will further enhance the strengths of K2 as the leading international hard-rock booking agency.”

Jackson, formerly of Helter Skelter Agency, formed K2 in 2002. He was also the co-founder with Kili’s Stuart Galbraith of the now-defunct Sonosphere festivals.

K2’s roster includes Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Mastodon and Gojira.
