For those not in the know a group of authors have decided to do a once a month (final friday of every month) announcement thread. Highlighting new artists coming to the service, contests, video game play debuts, and who knows what else! So for the rest of the day this thread will be the home of the latest and greatest news concerning Rock Band Network! So keep checking back during the day because who knows what might be happening during the next 16 hours
So we're going to start things off with a new partnership we've entered into to fix a problem that a lot of people have with Rock Band Network :
Too much Metalz.
Don't get us wrong, we love metal. We love difficult charts that have been forged in the fires of 5 lane hell. Songs that test your mettle, and make you question your man (or woman) hood when they kick your teeth out the back of your butt.
However it can't be cranked up to eleven all the time. Otherwise it just becomes stale.
We've heard your cries of too much metal growly yell music, and we're doing something to help bring in more of the...well...not metal into Rock Band Network.
So we're pleased to announce a long term relationship with Swedish label A West Side Fabrication.
While you might not be familiar with the bands on this label, you can't deny the quality of music these artists are producing.
We're confident that the music we're bringing from West Side will help to balance out the seeming nonstop onslaught of metal recently.
The first two tracks we're currently working on for the game are :
We are the Storm - Galileo
Oh My! - Twenty One
There will be much more to come from West Side so stay tuned to future announcement threads for more details.
We'll continue to add more information throughout the day (as will other authoring groups) including a contest for some KILLER prizes later in the day and even more new band announcements so stay tuned!
