Press Release

HOLLYWOOD, CA (May 13, 2014) – Director Michael Bay, film composer Steve Jablonsky and Paramount Pictures are collaborating with the Grammy Award-winning band IMAGINE DRAGONS to feature the band's original music in the upcoming film "TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION," one of the most anticipated movies of the summer.

Following an early footage screening of the film, IMAGINE DRAGONS wrote the original song "BATTLE CRY," which Bay used in critical points in the film. Additionally, the band contributed original music during the scoring process by recording cues with Jablonsky, the film's composer, and Hans Zimmer, who assisted in the process. The collaboration resulted in added depth to the sound of the film.

"We're incredibly lucky that Dan, Wayne, Ben and Daniel were available to work with us," says director Bay. "I remember being drawn to the emotion of 'Demons' and 'Radioactive' the first time I heard those songs, and I knew I wanted that same energy and heart for this movie. They've created a really epic, otherworldly sound for 'Battle Cry.'"

"The TRANSFORMER franchise has set the bar for cinematic innovation over the years," says Alex Da Kid, label head at KIDinaKORNER records. "We are excited to collaborate with Michael Bay and Paramount Pictures and view this as an incredible global platform."

IMAGINE DRAGONS will perform its new single live at the film's worldwide premiere in Hong Kong, one of the locations in the film, on June 19th
