June 17 2016 (New York, NY) Atlantic Records has announced the release of “SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM,” the musical companion to the eagerly awaited film from Warner Bros. Pictures. The album arrives in stores and at all online retailers on Friday, August 5th; SUICIDE SQUAD opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters that same day.

“SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM” is available for pre-order beginning today. All pre-orders will receive an instant grat download of the album’s first single, “Heathens,” by Fueled By Ramen recording duo Twenty One Pilots. “Heathens” is also available to stream and download everywhere. The track’s official companion video – which holds never-before-released film footage – will make its debut soon. Twenty One Pilots – who are currently traveling the planet on their hugely popular “EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW” world tour – recently ruled over the rock categories at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, taking home “Top Rock Artist” honors, with the #1 smash “BLURRYFACE” named “Top Rock Album,” based in part on the chart-topping success of such singles as “Ride” and “Stressed Out.”

The second instant grat single, dubbed the Squad Anthem, “Sucker For Pain” by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons with Logic and Ty Dolla $ign (Feat. X Ambassadors), will see the release of its companion video – which also holds never-before-released film footage – this month.

“SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM” is as wildly diverse as the Suicide Squad itself, showcasing new and previously unreleased material from some of the most commendable artists in contemporary music (see attached tracklisting). Other highlights include tracks from such unprecedented assemblages as Action Bronson & Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) [Feat. Mark Ronson], and Skrillex & Rick Ross. What’s more, “SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM” also features new songs from Kevin Gates, Kehlani, Skylar Grey, Grimes and Panic! At The Disco (who offer up an astounding rendition of Queen’s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody”). In addition to these new tracks, the album features musical classics from War and Creedence Clearwater Revival, as well as Eminem’s timeless anthem “Without Me” and a modern rendition of Leslie Gore’s classic “You Don’t Own Me” by Grace and contemporary superstar G-Eazy. The album also features the first full-length version of the ConfidentialMX (Feat. Becky Hanson) cover of “I Started A Joke,” which was featured in the Suicide Squad Comic-Con trailer, named one of the most-watched trailers of 2015 with over 136 million views since its release.

“SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM” will be celebrated in the coming weeks with the continued release of several additional instant grat tracks, including “Standing In The Rain,” by Action Bronson & Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) [Feat. Mark Ronson] and “Purple Lamborghini” by Skrillex & Rick Ross’ – which will be accompanied by an official music video featuring a special cameo performance by Jared Leto as The Joker. Kehlani’s “Gangsta” will also be released as an instant grat along with its official companion video. For regularly updated news and information, please see www.suicidesquad.com.

ABOUT SUICIDE SQUAD
From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes SUICIDE SQUAD, starring Oscar-nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar-winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt).

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity.  U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do.  However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, SUICIDE SQUAD also stars Jai Courtney (Insurgent), Jay Hernandez (Takers), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors), Scott Eastwood (Fury), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns), Adam Beach (Cowboys & Aliens), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. SUICIDE SQUAD is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Ayer’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Roman Vasyanov (Fury, End of Watch), production designer Oliver Scholl (Edge of Tomorrow), editor John Gilroy (Pacific Rim), costume designer Kate Hawley (The Hobbit Trilogy) and Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Jerome Chen (Stuart Little, Fury, The Amazing Spider-Man films). The music is by Oscar-winning composer Steven Price (Gravity).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment production, a film by David Ayer, SUICIDE SQUAD. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters beginning August 5th, 2016.
