June 3, 2008 was a day that went down in Rock Band infamy. That was the day we released both Disturbed and Jimmy Buffett packages as DLC, offering you a choice of perfect insanity or a cheeseburger in paradise. We thought that was the most extreme double-bill ever and we figured we’d never be able to get more perversely diverse than that.
It’s taken some time, but we just may have topped it. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present the simultaneous release of Slipknot and Simon & Garfunkel. For the first time in a music game, ‘60s folk-rock meets nu-metal, and only you can decide: Do you want to thoughtfully contemplate the ways of the world, or do you want to go out and blow it all up?
We’re not even stopping there, since we’re also releasing a single by Lights Resolve - a buzzed-about NYC band that’s been getting thousands of hits per day on your favorite networking sites. “Dreaming of Love” is a model modern-rock track, with a grand shimmering sound and massive soft-to-loud shifts. See if you can match the workout that lead singer/guitarist Matt Reich gives to his vocal cords.
These tracks will be available for purchase as “Slipknot Pack 01” as well as individual tracks on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system, and as individual tracks on Wii. Individual tracks are $2.00 on Wii and $1.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The pack is $5.49 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
