Linkin Park are back again with a brand new song for a brand new Transformers movie! Not only that, but MTV and it’s partners (MTV2, mtvU, VH1 Classic and Palladia) have been broadcasting a special performance of Linkin Park’s new single, “Iridescent” since Friday. It was shot during a special performance in Moscow’s Red Square – with the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Basilica as the backdrop. Pretty sweet!
Missed it? That’s OK. Watch it HERE right now!

One of the most successful collaborations between music and film, the previous Linkin Park singles to appear in the first two Transformers films, “What I’ve Done” from the first Transformers film, has sold over 4 million downloads worldwide.
“New Divide” from 2009′s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, crossed the 3 million mark. Both songs were top selling singles for the band, and went to #1 on the modern rock radio charts (with “New Divide” spending 14 weeks there).
TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON is the third film in the Transformers franchise and the first to be shot in 3D. It is directed by Michael Bay (again) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.
TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON opens nationwide on Wednesday, June 29th.
