MADDEN ’08 SOUNDTRACK REVEALED

Playlist Ranges From Atreyu and The Bravery to Earl Greyhound and Zion I and the Grouch
Are you ready for some football...video game music?

Electronic Arts today unveiled the highly anticipated music track listing for Madden NFL 08 set to release August 14.

The in-game soundtrack boasts 27 songs from some of the most influential artists in music today including The Bravery and Daddy Yankee to MIMS and Queens of the Stone Age, as well as explosive debuts from red-hot newcomers Earl Greyhound, Atreyu and Datarock.

The Madden NFL soundtrack has become one of the industry's most important showcases for superstars as well as a launching pad for new artists.

Over the past five years, the Madden NFL franchise has been instrumental in the introduction of such bands such as Good Charlotte, OK GO, Fall Out Boy, Chamillionaire, Franz Ferdinand, Ozomatli and 30 Seconds to Mars.

EA Worldwide Executive of Music, Marketing and Hoarding  Paper Clips Steve Schnur boasted: "The annual goal of the Madden NFL soundtrack is to give unprecedented exposure to new artists, bring established stars to a whole new level, and single-handedly define the sound of the coming year via the biggest sports franchise in video game history. Radio is adding songs based on a band's inclusion in the game. Video channels are creating their playlists based on the soundtrack. Simply put, Madden moves music forward. And this year's soundtrack is perhaps our most daring and effective mix of artists ever."

Among the highlights of Madden NFL 08 are songs by debut artists Airbourne, Datarock, Operator and Enter Shikari, and such platinum stars as The Bravery, Swizz Beats, Sum 41, Timbaland featuring Justin Timberlake, The Hives and Yellowcard. Last month's official announcement of Ozzy Osborne's "I Don't Wanna Stop" resulted in Active Rock airplay and downloads for the legendary rocker's first-ever Madden NFL track.
