In the wake of the massive success of Batman: Arkham Asylum, it’s one of the most anticipated video games
ever, period. And it looks like the soundtrack is going to be up to the task,
too.

 

Warner Bros.
Interactive Entertainment, WaterTower Music and DC Entertainment today
announced Batman:
Arkham City – The Album,
which will be released in conjunction with
the forthcoming gam. Featuring 12 new original tracks by Panic! At The Disco,
Coheed and Cambria, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and more (full track list
below), Batman:
Arkham City – The Album
will be released on October 4th, two weeks
prior to the game’s North American release on October 18th. Collector’s Edition
of the game will include a download code for the album along with additional
bonus content.

 

The artists
featured on Batman:
Arkham City – The Album
approached their contributions to the album
with their own unique interpretations of the stories surrounding Batman. The
result is an eclectic mix of dynamic, atmospheric songs for an album that will
appeal to fans of both the artists and the game. Coheed and Cambria frontman
Claudio Sanchez said, “I write in a very conceptual format with the
stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but
Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My
goal was to find universal themes from Batman’s existing history to help give
the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that
world.”
