New Rock Band 3 DLC Releases Tomorrow, First Content Update In Nearly Two Years!
Guys. Rock Band 3 is back with its first update in nearly two years.
Yes, that Rock Band 3. The very game you and your friends played at every party from the mid-to-late 2000s has returned. Harmonix announced that three new tracks will be coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the music rhythm game tomorrow, January 13, from the bands Foo Fighters, Avenged Sevenfold and Arctic Monkeys.
The songs join the impressive roster of over 4,000 songs from roughly 1,200 different artists from across all genres of music and the three entries into the series.
There was a time after the demise of MTV as a music distributor that Rock Band was poised to carry the torch and give great guitar music to the masses. Alas, the dream was unsustainable and the game has limped along ever since. The Cambridge based Harmonix moved on to different things, like the recently released Disney Fantasia Music Evolved.
But Rock Band will always be their masterwork. So, what new songs are coming from these great artists?
'R U Mine?' marks the first appearance of Arctic Monkeys onto any Rock Band title, though here's hoping it won't be the last.
Perennial Rock Band alums Foo Fighters are releasing 'Something For Nothing' from the band's album/tv series Sonic Highways (which you really should see on HBO if you haven't done so already). The song hit the top of the charts last October, and the Foos remains one of the last rock bands that can put out commercially successful songs.
And finally, Avenged Sevenfold also returns with Shepherd of Fire from their sixth studio album, Hail to the King.
Each song will be priced at $1.99. So dust off those guitars and drumsets. Rock Band 3, it's been a long time, never shoulda left you...
