Five-member rock band Mister have proved themselves to be a great investment since they joined Universal Music Group's Cinepoly Records three years ago. Now they've earned themselves a new contract.

The rockers ditched their signature all-black look and came out in outfits patterned with gold sequins to the signing ceremony on Wednesday at Spasso restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. The venue was also decorated to match the golden theme.

Duncan Wong, Universal's local managing director, gave them a pyramid-shaped decoration to wish them luck.

Asked whether they were happy with the new pay cheque, bassist Desmond Tam said: 'It's more than just a great offer. We've been happy working with everyone at the company. The staff have been like family to us.'

The band now have five studio albums, one EP and two concerts at the Coliseum under their belt, and are planning another concert next year. Their rising status has even started to arouse fans' interests in their private lives, but the boys want to keep things low-key.

Singer Alan Po, who recently started dating, said he did not want to discuss his girlfriend, who is not in show business.
