Tyler Bates is a Los Angeles-born composer who has scored more than sixty feature films, hundreds of episodes of television, major studio video games and artist records. Bates has more than twenty commercially released film soundtrack albums, several of which debuted number one at the box-office. Bates' recent work includes Marvel's 2014 smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy as well as co-writing and producing iconic shock-rocker Marilyn Manson's critically acclaimed album THE PALE EMPEROR. Tyler Bates co-wrote the score for Keanu Reeves 2014 hit John Wick, directed by David Letch and Chad Stihelski, which also features the song Killing Strangers written by Bates and Manson.

Tyler Bates' bold and emotional score for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy is an integral component to one of the highest grossing films of all time. Bates' authentic approach to Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead drew the attention of the Guardians director and led to scores for both Gunn's horror-comedy Slither as well as his comically tragic superhero classic Super before the two began their effort to bring Guardians of the Galaxy to the big screen.
