Death Cab for Cutie Lands Lead Single for 'New Moon' Soundtrack


Death Cab for Cutie, an indie-rock from Bellingham, Wash., was awarded the lead single on the soundtrack for “New Moon”. In case you’ve been making camp under a rock lately, “New Moon” is the second component to the “Twilight Saga”.

According to, the band’s song, “Meet Me on the Equinox” was created exclusively for the soundtrack and will be revealed on MTV’s Video Music Awards Sept. 13.

It’s been my understanding the phenomena that is “Twilight” is gradually taking over the world- by “world” I mean hormonal teenage girls everywhere and one indie rock guitarist, Chris Walla.

In an interview with MTV News, Walla said he “loved” Jacob and said Edward was an “a-hole” for not being around when Bella needed him. (He’s totally team Jacob) He also wanted to remind fans he plans on completing the saga and not to telling him the ending anytime soon. Either this guy is trying to score points with chicks or he’s actually a “Twilight” fan. Either way, it’s pretty amusing.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, the first soundtrack for “Twilight” debuted at No.1 and has sold over 2 million copies. So, having the lead single for “New Moon” is not a bad business move and will no doubt bode well for the Grammy nominated rock band. The “New Moon” soundtrack is scheduled for release Oct. 20.
