Skillet Featured on Transformer 3 Soundtrack

CBN.comOn June 14, Warner Bros. Records will release the album to the hotly anticipated motion picture Transformers: Dark of the Moon — the third film in the Oscar®-nominated summer blockbuster Transformers series, which hits theaters nationwide on June 29. The album features the rock radio mix of "Awake & Alive" from Skillet, which earned Skillet their first No. 1 Mainstream Active Rock hit and a No. 1 at CHR and Christian Rock radio. The track was also the first No. 1 Mainstream Active Rock hit to feature female vocals in the charts nearly 14-year history, and made Skillet the only Christian act to have crossed over to the Active Rock format with a No. 1 single.

"I am a junkie for these kind of movies so to have 'Awake & Alive' included on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon album is one of the coolest things that we could have happen," comments Skillet frontman John Cooper. "I'll be one of the first in line to see the film when it hits theaters this summer."

Released in Standard, iTunes Deluxe, and Game Stop configurations, The Transformers: Dark of the Moon album features music from Skillet, Linkin Park, including the first single “Iridescent,” My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Art of Dying, Theory of a Deadman, Black Veil Brides, 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.

Opening in theaters on June 29th, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, stars Shia LaBeouf, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Patrick Dempsey and Kevin Dunn, with John Malkovich and Frances McDormand. Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky. When a mysterious event from Earth’s past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.
