Imagine Dragons Record Original Song for Transformers Movie

Imagine Dragons  has recorded a new song for the upcoming  Transformers  movie,  Age of Extinction . The tune is strong and anthemic, just how you'd expect a tune called "Battle Cry" to sound. Besides the standalone song, Imagine Dragons also contributed original music to the film's score which, according to a Paramount press release, "added depth to the sound of the film."

The Dragons' song plays over a new  Transformers  trailer, which also announces that the band will play live at the world premiere in Hong Kong on June 19. Fans have a shot at winning a trip for two to see the exclusive show -- just tweet using #TransformersPremiere for your chance.

"We’re incredibly lucky that [Imagine Dragons was] available to work with us,” says  Transformers  director  Michael Bay  in a statement. "I remember being drawn to the emotion of 'Demons' and 'Radioactive' the first time I heard those songs, and I knew I wanted that same energy and heart for this movie. They’ve created a really epic, otherworldly sound for 'Battle Cry.'"

This is likely going to be all the new music we hear from the Dragons for a while -- back in March frontman  Dan Reynolds  told  Billboard  that although the band has around 50 demos done towards a new album, the band's schedule is so busy that he's not sure when they'll be able to hit the studio.

One of the things keeping the band so busy are awards shows. Along with  Lorde , Imagine Dragons were the  first performers announced  for Canada's MuchMusic Video Awards, which will be held in Toronto on Sunday, June 15. 

Lorde and Imagine Dragons have something else in common: they're both nominated for a leading 12 trophies at the  Billboard  Music Awards, which air live from Las Vegas on ABC this Sunday, May 18.
