[UKPRwire, Thu Jul 20 2006] As hero Alex Rider (Alex Pettyfer) strives to derail the evil plan of Darrius Sayle (Mickey Rourke) in this summer’s biggest action packed adventure STORMBREAKER, one of the secret gadgets that has been at the fingertips of the film makers has been independent music site Arkade.com (www.arkade.com).
Launched in October 2005, Arkade.com is a leading music site featuring original music from over 1000 unsigned bands.
Associate Producer, Jessica Parker, said:
“We wanted to find a strong and original track to complement the theme of Stormbreaker. Arkade.com allowed us to experience cutting edge music across a broad range of genres. When we heard the Transluzent track featuring Carla Vallet, ‘Blame’, it blew us away.”
Stormbreaker follows in the path of two recent commercials that also sourced music from Arkade.com artists; the recent Vodafone 3G advertisement featuring the Rebus track ‘Work Song’, and the Audi Q7 SUV ad that featured Carla Vallet’s song ‘Streets of Tomorrow’.
Greg Walsh, CEO and founder of Arkade.com, added,
“When we launched the site last year we saw it simply as a way for unsigned bands to distribute music to the public at the costs they wanted and in a way where the artist got to keep 100% of the sale price. It is fantastic to see Arkade now evolving in this broader way to a wider audience.”
Stormbreaker is released in UK cinemas on 21 July 2006.
