    As per mikeshinoda.com, Linkin Park will be working on the score for the film Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen.

    Mike also has been referencing a new track on his blog and finally revealed that it is also for the film, which is due out in theaters June 24th.

    From Mike's blog:

    "Although I wasn't at liberty to say it before, the song I've been referencing here on mikeshinoda.com in the past few weeks...is actually being done for Michael Bay's new Transformers film, due out June 24th.

    In addition--and probably ever cooler--we have been offered the unique opportunity to help score the film. The song we wrote is being used as one of the themes, and we will be writing various interpolations on that theme, and trying out some other thematic ideas as part of the (very large) team scoring the film.

    My bandmates and I are working with award-winning film composer (and resident ass-kicker) Hans Zimmer. We met with Hans last week, and heard some of the incredible things he and his guys have done with our new song. In the next few days, we'll be doing some work with Hans' amazing writing and recording crew.

    Michael Bay has shown us select scenes from the film, and it looks incredible. I can't wait for you to see it."

    Thanks to 1996_LP & Rawk.Star for the news!

    On a slightly different tangent, this probably means there'll be new Linkin Park released sooner than most probably expected.

    Not really. This is probably a one-off song that was done purely for the movie and has nothing to do with the new album.

    I was referring to new material in general, the probability of its inclusion on the album notwithstanding. ;)

    What, working with Hans Zimmer or helping score a movie?

    If it's the latter, then no, plenty have bands have scored whole movies. I can't think of any band's in the same vein as linkin park, but Pink Floyd and Explosions In The Sky are two bands i can think of right now who've scored whole movies. There are plenty more.

    I guess so. But the band's i picked just wrote the score for the movie, rather than being the subject and the stars of the movie as well. :p

    No, I was talking about working along side a composer, pretty renowned in this case, and integrating a song in unique ways into a movie. That has probably never been done before heh. LP deserves huge props for that!
