Crank it up, gamers! The football pre-season kicks off with a bang as Electronic Arts reveals the 35 songs that will be featured in Madden NFL 07, becoming the de facto soundtrack of the 2007 football season. The bone-crunching action and heart-pounding adrenaline of the grid iron is intensified by the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one-of-a-kind mix of rock and hip hop. Madden NFL 07 will be available in August on Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, PC, PSP and GBA.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Year after year, the music selected for inclusion in EAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s smash hit football series invariably becomes the soundtrack of the football season, moving beyond the game to turn up in football stadiums and on live TV broadcasts,Ã¢â‚¬? said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing at EA. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Madden NFL Football franchise is recognized across North America as a driving force behind break-out bandsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ this year EA does it again.Ã¢â‚¬?
Players step onto the field in Madden NFL 07 with the thundering roar of the crowd in the background and the air filled with pounding rock anthems and energizing hip hop beats. These hot tracks are included alongside new releases from fan favorites AFI, Audioslave, Dashboard Confessional and Taking Back Sunday. Also this year, game fans will be spellbound by new music debuts from Jared LetoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 30 Seconds to Mars, Dave NavarroÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s band The Panic Channel, and Rise Against whose sophomore record is anticipated to be one of the biggest rock albums of the year.
