The Bangups Sign With Atlas Music Publishing

NEW YORK, NY (February 4, 2015) – American rock band The Bangups have signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with Atlas Music Publishing, it was announced today by Richard Stumpf, CEO.

“Bangups rock. Simple as that,” Said said Kristen Bushnell, Senior Manager of Synchronization, Atlas Music Publishing. “Brent and Joey have a raw talent that's evident in their music. I couldn't be happier that they've chosen Atlas as their publishing partners. Let's do this!”

Hailing from Grand Rapids, MI, The Bangups are a two-piece band comprised of Joey Dornbos (vocals, guitar) and Brent French (background vocals, drums). Their electrifying fusion of punk, rock and roll, and blues has grabbed the attention of music supervisors and garnered them placements on television’s Bates Motel and the Discovery Channel.
