Tyler Bates regularly transitions from scoring some of the world’s biggest film and television franchises such as Guardians of the Galaxy and John Wick, to rocking massive audiences in the world of rock music, and back to the studio again writing and producing records with artists like HEALTH, Bush, Marilyn Manson, In This Moment, and Starcrawler, to name a few.

In 2004, he created the menacing audio backdrop for the popular Zack Snyder reboot of Dawn of the Dead, beginning a string of nearly a dozen box office number one’s that have contributed to well over 5 billion dollars cumulative worldwide box-office gross for his projects. Bates then teamed up with Snyder again for the films 300, Watchmen and Suckerpunch. His oeuvre expanded to include films like Atomic Blonde, The Devil’s Rejects, The Day the Earth Stood Still, William Friedkin’s Killer Joe, and TV shows like Californication, Punisher, The Purge, Kingdom, Salem, The Exorcist and more.

More recently, Bates scored the blockbuster Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, Deadpool 2, Jamie Foxx’s Dayshift, Ti West’s 2022 releases X and Pearl, The Spy Who Dumped Me, plus Genndy Tartakovsky’s acclaimed animated series Samurai Jack & Primal. After scoring Cirque du Soleil’s R.U.N, Bates embarked on a 2022/2023 world tour in support of Jerry Cantrell’s latest album Brighten, which he also co-produced. With more new projects on the horizon, Tyler Bates will undoubtedly continue to redefine what a composer is — a shapeshifting artist who has architected one of the most kaleidoscopic resumes in music.
