A few months ago, I got on the phone with Michael Bay, who wanted to discuss the possibility of our band continuing our run with songs paired with the Transformers films. We (he, his team, and our band) all have enjoyed working together on the past two, and he wanted to discuss the ideas we might have for Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon. In particular, one song came up immediately. Ever since we started playing Iridescent live, the song has been a fan favorite at the show.Apparently the chosen version of the song can be heard here. I assume the video will likely involve the band on the moon or something near or on the Ark or some variation of that with scenes from the movie playing everywhere much like their two previous Transformers music videos. Thanks to NHLfan and Sahara for the heads-up.
For the film, there’s a new, slightly shorter version of the song, which is floating around the internet now. We’ll be shooting a video for the song tomorrow, directed by Joe Hahn.
