Trinity Street, ecommerce supplier to the Ministry of Sound and bands including Oasis and Razorlight, has gone out of business — bringing the ecommerce sites of its clients down with it.
According to a report in New Media Age on Monday:
Ministry of Sound has been forced to shut its website while a raft of other sites have shut their online music stores after ecommerce provider Trinity Street ceased trading.
A source at Trinity Street confirmed the music marketing agency ceased trading on Friday afternoon.
Trinity Street clients have been hit by the closure. These include bands Oasis and Razorlight, which have both closed their online music stores; Orson, which has closed its website; and The London Bridge Experience, which has disabled its online ticketing system.
