​Following a successful launch in New York, Rough Trade have now announced plans to expand further throughout the UK.

​As Music Week note, the music outlet has bought a controlling stake in rival indie chain Rise, subsequently making Rise’s Lawrence Montgomery the manager of Rough Trade’s regional UK store operations.

“Rough Trade defines the past, present and future of music retail like no other brand, so I’m delighted to be joining Rough Trade during this incredibly exciting period, helping bring their much loved and respected form of music retail to cities across the UK, starting with Nottingham,” Montgomery says of the news.

It’s not yet known when the Nottingham store will launch, but more store announcements are also expected in the future.

Rise currently holds stores in Bristol, Worcester and Cheltenham.
