MTV even did an article about them vying for a spot on the New Moon soundtrack.
FORKS, Washington — He's arguably the most talented and popular of a collection of musicians who compose songs about Stephenie Meyer's vivid "Twilight" universe. Yet, if you've only seen the "Twilight" movie, you may not be aware of Mitch Hansen. He's hoping all that will soon change.
"It's called 'By You,' " the affable frontman of the Mitch Hansen Band told MTV News of his latest song and video, which he's premiering with us and hoping to get onto the upcoming "New Moon" soundtrack. "It's essentially from Bella's perspective, and it's kind of a very edgy rock-type song. It's about 'New Moon' through her eyes, all that pain she felt. Then at the end it resolves — in a more happy place, I should say. It's a very emotional song."
Although "Twilight"-themed bands like the Bella Cullen Project, the Twilight Music Girls and the Mitch Hansen Band have become enormously popular with the fanbase since the saga's pop-culture explosion — and improved dramatically as musicians while playing songs to ever-increasing crowds — the folks behind the "Twilight" movies have continued to largely ignore them. As impressive as arena-rockers like Paramore, Linkin Park and Thom Yorke may be, a vocal segment of the fanbase is hoping Summit will finally give a big break to a Twi-band and incorporate a song with lyrics about the tale of Edward and Bella into "New Moon."
