Bruno Mars and Rise Against will contribute three tracks apiece to the next Rock Band Music Store update.
Bruno Mars makes his Rock Band debut next week with a three pack of songs from his platinum debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans. The pack will feature "Grenade", "Marry You" and the GRAMMY Award-winning "Just the Way You Are".
Next week also marks the return of Rise Against to the Rock Band catalog, bringing a three pack featuring "Audience of One", "Help Is on the Way" and "The Good Left Undone". Pro Upgrades are available for both "Audience of One" and "The Good Left Undone". Rise Against released their sixth studio album Endgame earlier this year. The band just got off a six week headlining tour and this fall will support the Foo Fighters for part of their US Tour. For more information and dates visit www.riseagainst.com
In addition, Harmonix is also releasing Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for two back-catalog songs - "Kickstart My Heart" from Mötley Crüe and "Even Flow" from Pearl Jam. Fans who have already downloaded those songs will be able to purchase a simple upgrade that will allow them to play Pro Guitar and Pro Bass on those songs in Rock Band 3. For fans that haven't yet purchased those songs - this is a great opportunity to do so!
