Sure was a big week for Skillet… fresh off their Billboard Music Award win this past Sunday night for “Top Christian Album,” it was announced that the band landed a coveted spot on the upcoming TRANSFORMERS 3: DARK OF THE MOON Soundtrack.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon is 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 them their first #1 Mainstream Active Rock hit and a #1 at CHR and Christian Rock radio. The track was also the first #1 Mainstream Active Rock hit to feature female vocals in the chart’s nearly 14-year history, and made Skillet the only Christian act to have crossed over to the Active Rock format with a #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 frontman John Cooper. “I’ll be one of the first in line to see the film when it hits theaters this summer!”
