The Belle Brigade are currently on tour promoting their self-titled debut album, but Barbara and Ethan Gruska have much more to be psyched about. Their song, 'I Didn't Mean It' is featured on 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' soundtrack.

While the brother-sister duo have already charmed music critics and fans alike, being a part of the 'Breaking Dawn' soundtrack is extra exciting, as it will expose the band to a whole new group, namely Twi-hards.
Here, we talked to Barbara and Ethan about their latest song, the forthcoming 'Twilight' film and which "team" they're on. 'The Belle Brigade' is available on iTunes now, while 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' soundtrack arrives on November 8.

The Belle Brigade, 'I Didn't Mean It'

JSYK: How did you become involved with the 'Breaking Dawn' soundtrack?

The Belle Brigade: Around the time our record was released, Alex Patsavas (the music supervisor for 'Twilight') asked us if we had any additional material that could be used for possible placement ... We gave her our song 'I Didn't Mean It' and were lucky enough to have it chosen ... pretty cool!

JSYK: Do you think fans will be surprised by your new song? It seems to show a different side of you than what's on your debut album.

TBB: Yes, this song is definitely different from anything else we've put out and people might be surprised that this is one of our songs, but we have a lot of different musical styles and influences lurking within us.

JSYK: What inspired 'I Didn't Mean It'?

TBB: We were housesitting for someone who had a piano and were making some demos in the process, and somewhere in the night we came up with the piano riff for the song. The rest of the song couldn't have taken more than 30 minutes to finish ... those songs are always the most fun! The song is about a raging and jealous person who feels ashamed about acting out of his/her jealousy ...

JSYK: Are you on Team Edward or Team Jacob?

TBB: We are on Team Bella because we are the Bella Brigade, duh!

JSYK: Where will you be when 'Breaking Dawn' is released on November 18?

TBB: That's actually our first day back home after our current tour! So we'll be at the Vista Theater in Silver Lake, California, praying that our song made it into the battle scene!
