Rock Band DLC Coming For First Time In 21 Months


Despite previous thoughts that Rock Band series was dead, slowly but surely Harmonix has been working their way back. Last year they announced plans to revive the series in the upcoming “console cycle,” and today Harmonix did the unthinkable and announced a new slate of Rock Band DLC. That’s right, for the first time in 21 months, those who own Rock Band 3 will be treated to three brand new tracks as early as tomorrow.

More from News

Rock Band DLC staples Foo Fighters and Avenged Sevenfold will be providing tracks, with an additional track from DLC newcomer Arctic Monkeys. “Something From Nothing,” from Foo Fighters’ recent album Sonic Highways, “Shepherd of Fire” from Avenged Sevenfold’s 2013 album Hail to the King and “R U Mine?” from Arctic Monkeys’ 2013 album AM will be listed on January 13th, digitally, at $1.99 each on the PlayStation and Xbox Stores. PSN Europe users will have to wait until January 21st for them to be released.

Why Harmonix has decided to kickstart the Rock Band DLC train once again almost 2 years after the fact, and with DLC expiring due to licensing issues, is a mystery. Hopefully it means that they’re getting the gang back together to announce a new Rock Band game for PS4, Xbox One and Wii U in the future, but that’s just wish-casting at this point. Time to bring out the plastic drum sets and guitars, dudes and dudettes, ’cause it looks like it’s time to rock once again!
