Rock Bands gets new DLC after nearly two years

Rock Band developer Harmonix has not released a new DLC track in 21 months, but that’s about to change because Harmonix announced on Monday that new DLC music from Avenged Sevenfold, Arctic Monkeys, and Foo Fighters will be available tomorrow, January 13.

The new songs listed below can be purchased for $2 each from the Rock Band Music Store, and will be compatible with Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz. The tracks offered for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are:

  • Arctic Monkeys – “R U Mine?”
  • Avenged Sevenfold – “Shepherd Of Fire”
  • Foo Fighters – “Something From Nothing”

The Wii version of Rock Band won’t be receiving the new DLC. Additionally, players from Europe will have to wait longer to get the new DLC, as it won’t arrive there until January 21.

After 275 straight weeks of being bombarded by new DLC (with 130 million songs downloaded), Harmonix originally ended support for Rock Band DLC back in April 2013. So why did Harmonix revive DLC for the game now? Do they plan to offer more DLC tracks in the weeks and months to come? Unfortunately, Harmonix remains tight-lipped.
