Imagine Dragons discuss "Battle Cry" and Transformers: Age of Extinction

The Grammy Award-winning rock band Imagine was one of 2013's breakout artists, having played to sold-out audiences in North America, South America, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Night Visions, their debut full length album, reached #2 on  the Billboard Top 200 and had the best first-week sales for a full-length debut by a new rock band in over six years.
 
Selling over 4 million copies worldwide, the album's success was due in large part to the multi-platinum single "It's Time" and hit follow-up singles "Radioactive" and "Demons".

Paramount has released an exclusive Transformers: Age of Extinction featurette via iTunes Trailers which highlights the bands work on the film, including their song "Battle Cry", their thoughts on the film and what it was like to work with Michael Bay, Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer.



Transformers: Age of Extinction is the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise. Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Li Bingbing , Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, T. J. Miller, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver star. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is in theaters 06.27.14

You've gotta give some love to the local Utah band making it big :o)

Oh, and "First"!

I really love Demons, one of my favorite modern rock songs actually, and I think their new song for this movie (Battle Cry) is pretty decent, but all their other songs are pretty mediocre.

Nate, LMAO, must be your first, First ever, congratulations...you should just program every thread to have you "first", haha...may stop other morons from embarrassing themselves, especially when they don't get first...

These guys are awesome, and I'm definitely looking forward to hearing their stuff in this movie. WWE used "Monster" PERFECTLY in this promo:

@batz11 - That would get rid of all the "firsters" wouldn't it :o)
batz11 - 6/18/2014, 5:57 PM
Suppose then we'd just get "seconders" lol...no win situation...

Nice work, Nate. "Radioactive" always reminds me of the Pens even though they probably used this song for every team.

@batz
That was a shot at me, wasn't it?
batz11 - 6/18/2014, 6:01 PM
Weeeellll... ;)
batz11 - 6/18/2014, 6:05 PM
They are a talented group, no doubt, the radio and my kids [frick]ing wore all their songs out for me...big career ahead for "just a lil band outta Utah"...

How does the song remind you of the Pens, B&W? Just curious. I always think of the Hulk or the show Defiance.
BlindJustice - 6/18/2014, 6:07 PM
Oops B&Y... Phone autocorrected it.
blackandyellow - 6/18/2014, 6:14 PM
BlindJustice, because of the commercial I posted where they show Pens highlights with their song playing.

FightAs0ne - 6/18/2014, 6:57 PM
@ManOfSteel22 That's the worst AC game, but I like the song. Feels conflicted.

loki668 - 6/18/2014, 11:07 PM
I prefer their opening act "The Whiffin' Griffins".

IMagine dragons are douche bags and their music sucks. Kind of makes sense that they are involved with Michael Bay movies. Anyone remember Linkin Park? Haha.
