Linkin Park ‘New Divide’ — Video
One of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer is the sequel to Transformers, ‘Revenge Of The Fallen.’ Based on the toy line that was widely popular in the 1980s, Transformers’ latest installment has returned with one of the most badass trailers of the year. Every big movie needs a big soundtrack, and Linkin Park have the lead track on the film’s album, which also include tracks by Green Day, Hoobastank and Avenged Sevenfold.
The video for “New Divide,” Linkin Park’s contribution and the album’s official single, features varying clips from the film interspersed with scenes of the band performing. Filtered with visual effects, the video was directed by Mr. Hahn, turntablist and DJ for Linkin Park. With ample amounts of data-moshing paired with explosive scenes from the movie, it accompanies the score, which was arranged by Steve Jablonsky (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Island and the first Transformers) and master composer Hans Zimmer. Linkin Park are also busy at work on their new album, set for 2010, and Chester Bennington is moving forward on his solo project, Dead By Sunrise.
