I can only assume this is the first high profile group to contribute to the upcoming soundtrack as the first film had the likes of Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, Kid Cudi and Maroon 5. However, any additional artists have yet to be announced so this is what you get for now.
In addition to the announcement, the band also released the song’s lyrics, which I included just below the video. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters on November 22.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobsonâ€™s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
