PULSE Music Group has signed hardcore punk band Turnstile to a worldwide publishing deal via a creative joint venture with American Songs (the publishing entity founded by legendary music producer Rick Rubin) as announced today by Scott Cutler and Josh Abraham, co-CEO’s of PULSE Music Group; and Michael Goldberg and Isaac Heymann, A&R, American Songs. The deal with PULSE Music Group/American Songs encompasses Turnstile’s entire song catalog.

Turnstile—comprised by Brendan Yates, Franz Lyons, Daniel Fang, and Pat McCrory—have become one of the biggest, most uniformly beloved bands in the hardcore genre, earning them nominations in three different categories at this year’s GRAMMY Awards: Best Rock Song (“Blackout”), Best Metal Performance (“Blackout”) and Best Rock Performance (“Holiday”). The Baltimore-based unit’s star continues to rise thanks to 2021’s stellar Glow On album and the rave reviews they have been receiving for their highly regarded live performances. Glow On, the band’s third studio album and breakout LP produced by Mike Elizondo (whose credits range from Dr. Dre and Eminem to Mastodon), debuted at #30 on Billboard 200 and was named by RollingStone as #8 on its list of the Best 50 Albums of 2021. The band are currently on tour and are also tapped to support Blink-182 on the North American leg of their arena tour throughout May, June and July of this year. Turnstile have over 1.4 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

Scott Cutler commented: “We have been waiting a very long time for the next great rock band to emerge and feel very fortunate that we will get to work with Brendan and the band. Welcoming Turnstile to our PULSE Music Group roster is a great example of what we set out to do creatively when we formed our joint venture with Rick Rubin. We’re proud to welcome Turnstile to our roster and to partner with American Songs to publish culturally impactful talent.”

“We are beyond excited to welcome Turnstile to our American Songs family,” said Isaac Heymann and Michael Goldberg of American Songs. “We look forward to helping their limitless expansion.”

Formed in 2015, the American Songs joint venture with PULSE Music Group established an initial music publishing client roster for music industry icon Rick Rubin. Clients include GRAMMY® winning producer and artist Kaytranda (Mary J. Blige, H.E.R.), GRAMMY® nominee El-P (Run the Jewels), multi-platinum producers Chad Hugo (the Neptunes) and Romil Hemnani (Brockhampton), and critically acclaimed artists including Kevin Abstract, Jean Dawson, Charley Crockett, Colter Wall, Marcus King and Freddie Gibbs.
