Artist Alert: Skillet Featured in Transformers Soundtrack Official Announcement

A couple days ago, I let you all know that Skillet will be featured in the soundtrack of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Today, Skillet released the official announcement as well as information for exactly what song will be in the soundtrack. Here is an excerpt from it:

May 27, 2011 — (Nashville, Tenn.) —  On June 14th, 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 29th. The album will feature the rock radio mix of "Awake & Alive" from Skillet, which earned Ski llet 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 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. A pre-order for the exclusive iTunes Deluxe edition begins May 31st at http://wbr.fm/t3preorder.  

"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 his theaters this summer."
