Music Industry Moves: WZRD BLD Joins Artist Publishing Group Roster; Limp Bizkit Signs With AGI

Artist Publishing Group (APG) has recently signed writer-producer WZRD BLD to a publishing deal, announcing with it the company's efforts to expand into the alternative and rock genres. Since its founding in 2004, APG has seen major success in the pop and hip-hop lanes with such artists and writers as Amy Allen, Taz Taylor, Don Toliver, Madison Love, Ava Max, Charlie Puth and YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

WZRD BLD (real name: Drew Fulk) is a L.A. transplant from North Carolina who works across multiple genres and has already seen five songs hit No. 1 at mainstream rock radio. His credits include multiple cuts on Lil Peep's "Come Over When You're Sober Pt. 2" as well as work with 347aidan, Kim Dracula, Bankrol Hayden, carolesdaughter, half alive and POORSTACY, among other acts. He also founded a rock-focused publishing company, In The Cut, in 2019, notching several chart-toppers as a publisher.

"I'm thrilled to welcome WZRD BLD into the APG family," said APG A&R Andre Herd. "He is a very accomplished producer in the rock world as well as is one of the most versatile producers I know, having worked with artists ranging from Lil Peep to Lil Wayne. His hunger and determination to make cultural and impactful records is unparalleled and we couldn't be more excited to help him execute and build towards all his goals."

 APG's Mike Caren added: "WZRD BLD is an incredible forward thinking talent and we are honored to be on board his team."

"I couldn't be more excited to jump into the next chapter of my career with APG," said WZRD BLD. "In getting to know Mike, Andre, and everyone at the company, I've learned how high APG sets the bar for excellence and it's truly inspiring. Mike's a leader I've admired for many years so getting to work with him and his team is really incredible and I can't wait to take on the world together!"

 Veteran nu-metal outfit Limp Bizkit has signed with Artist Group International for North American representation. AGI's Dennis Arfa, Mike Arfin, and Nick Storch will be the responsible agents along with their team of agents. The group performed at the Lollapalooza festival in August but postponed a following tour due to COVID-19 concerts; they plan to tour in the summer of 2022.

"We are honored to welcome Limp Bizkit to AGI," said Arfa. "They are one of music's most energetic headliners and we can't wait to bring the guys back to audiences around the country next summer."

Fred Durst, lead vocalist and band manager commented, "I'm very excited to be teaming up with AGI for this next exciting chapter in Limp Bizkit's journey. It's been a long time since I've felt this confident about our team on the field.
