The band have contributed three songs – one for each of the flicks released so far.

Supermassive Black Hole was on the first soundtrack, I Belong To You on New Moon and Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) on Eclipse.

‘I’m not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you’ve just got to get your music out there in different ways,’ Chris told BBC Newsbeat.

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is said to be a big fan of the band.
