death-cab new moon

More Twilight news has reared its ugly head, but this time the focus is on music. The New Moon soundtrack is the topic of discussion, and Death Cab For Cutie is the band of choice. Last year Paramore led the way on the number one soundtrack of the first film. According to Yahoo, Death Cab has been given the honor to do the same for New Moon.

The name of the lead single off the album is called “Meet Me On the Equinox.” It was specifically written for the film by the indie-rock band. The video for the song will be revealed on September 13th on the MTV website, during their annual broadcast of the Video Music Awards. The complete New Moon soundtrack will be released in stores on October 20th.

It looks like Paramore couldn’t keep their position as Twilight’s number one music companions. The re-teaming of the same film and band doesn’t always work. Look at what happened with Transformers and Linkin Park. I’m a fan of both, but I hated the film and the song produced as follow ups to their 2007 originals.

To my understanding, the vibe for New Moon is supposed to be a lot darker than the first film. From a production standpoint, It looks like they’ve made the switch from blue camera filters to orange. As for music, that’s up for debate.

What do you think of Death Cab For Cutie leading the New Moon soundtrack?
