Rock Band Debuts from Tommy Tutone, Ohio Players & Relient K, plus Singles from Anberlin & Mastodon

Next week, we’re adding to the Anberlin Rock Band catalog with “Breaking” the second single from the alternative rock band’s 2008 album New Surrender. “Feel Good Drag,” from the same album, is already available for Rock Band play.

We’re bringing fans more from heavy metal outfit Mastodon as well, with “Blood and Thunder” from their 2004 album Leviathan. “Colony of Birchmen” from the band’s 2006 album, Blood Mountain, is also available in the Rock Band Music Store.

The Ohio Players will make their Rock Band debut next week with two of their classics, “Fire,” the title track from the band’s 1974 album of the same name, and “Love Rollercoaster,” which was released on the band’s 1975 album Honey and reached the top of both the R&B and pop charts.

American rockers Relient K will also make their Rock Band debut next week with “Must Have Done Something Right” from their 2007 album Five Score and Seven Years Ago, which debuted at No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard 200.

Finally, Tommy Tutone will also make their debut next week with the '80s classic “867-5309/Jenny.” The song was originally released on the 1981 album Tommy Tutone 2 and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. “867-5309/Jenny” was rerecorded and released on 2010’s Tutone-Ality, which is the version featured in Rock Band.

As always, songs available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3, feature five-button guitar and bass parts, drums, Pro Drums, and keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable. Some songs also feature Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available for an additional $0.99 upgrade download.
