On 13 June the hotly anticipated soundtrack to Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be released, and as expected, it's a hard rock release.
The Transformers: Dark of the Moon album features music from Linkin Park, including the first single Iridescent,, My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Art of Dying, Theory Of A Deadman, Black Veil Brides, Skillet, and Mastodon (who contribute a cover of ZZ Top’s Just Got Paid), as well as new music from Paramore and Goo Goo Dolls debuting exclusively on the album.
Contributing the song Iridescent (which also appears on Linkin Park’s 2010 album A Thousand Suns) to Transformers: Dark of the Moon is Linkin Park’s third time working with Transformers director Michael Bay. The first Transformers film featured the band’s smash hit single What I’ve Done, which rocketed to No. 1 on both Billboard’s Mainstream Rock and Modern Rock charts, while the second film featured the specially written New Divide, which topped the Rock, Modern, and Mainstream radio charts simultaneously.
Fueled By Ramen recording artists Paramore will also be releasing Monster, debuting exclusively on the album and marking Paramore's first new single since The Only Exception off their acclaimed third album brand new eyes. "We're back for the attack! And we are so excited to be a part of the Transformers album," says frontwoman Hayley Williams, "Tell your friends... Paramore is still a band."
John Rzeznik from Goo Goo Dolls adds: “It's always awesome to be part of a project of this scale.” Their TF3 exclusive debut track, “All That You Are,” is also their first new music since the release of their current Warner Bros. Records album, Something For The Rest Of Us. Goo Goo Dolls have been touring the world non-stop for the past several months and will perform “All That You Are” live on Good Morning America on July 22nd.
