Warner Chappell Music has entered into an exclusive worldwide publishing deal for the administration of the catalogue for Stone Temple Pilots members Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo, and Eric Kretz.
The group have sold 40 million records worldwide.
“Stone Temple Pilots helped to define a distinct rock sound of a decade through their incredible songwriting and eclectic performances, and we’re thrilled to be bringing their catalogue back to Warner Chappell Music,” said Greg Sowders, SVP, A&R, US, Warner Chappell Music. “Their work has left an impact on American culture that continues to resonate today.”
Ryan Press, WCM president of A&R, US, said: “There’s no overstating the role Stone Temple Pilots played in developing the landmark sound of their era. But it’s the quality of their songwriting perhaps more than anything that has stood the test of time.”
“The support of Greg, Ryan and the whole team at Warner Chappell means so much to us,” said the three members of Stone Temple Pilots. “We’re very excited about the future of this creative collaboration.”
The band previously signed with Universal Music Publishing Group in 2010. Frontman Scott Weiland died in 2015.
Jeff Gutt, who became the group’s singer in 2017, signed a publishing deal with Reservoir last year.
