Death Cab for Cutie's "Meet Me on the Equinox" will be the first single from the New Moon soundtrack and will premier on MTV September 13. I never read any of the Twilight books, never saw the movie, and I find Kristen Stewart to be exceptionally boring, but still, it's pretty cool that the series keeps up its Northwest pride by showcasing a Northwest band on the movie's soundtrack.
The band's bassist, Nick Harmer, tells MTV about writing the song: "Basically the 'Twilight' series is about love, and that's a major theme for us. So, it wasn't difficult for us at all."
(Sidenote: I think it's hilarious that, in the comment thread of this article on MTV.com, "real" DCFC fans are boasting about being a fan for "about five years" and getting all riled up about how this will bring new attention to "their" band and result in a lot of "fake" fans. I SAW THEM OPEN FOR JUNO IN 2000 AT THE KIRKLAND SENIOR CENTER. FUCK OFF N00BS. Ahem. Congrats, boys!)
