Foster the People Making ‘Rock Band’ Debut Next Week
Foster the People make their ‘Rock Band’ debut next week when two tunes from their album ‘Torches’ get released for the rock-themed video game. ‘Helena Beat’ and ‘Don’t Stop (Color the Walls)’ both are out on Tuesday (July 24), and will be available for the Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation 3 gaming systems.
Foster fans wondering when they can get their video controller-pushing thumbs on the band’s biggest hit, ‘Pumped Up Kicks,’ your wait is over — kind of. While it’s not coming to ‘Rock Band’ any time soon (that we know of), that smash track will be out this summer for ‘Rock Band Blitz,’ a new game available this summer for the Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Meanwhile, New York rockers the Strokes will see their own ‘Under Cover of Darkness’ from their ‘Angles’ album also drop for ‘Rock Band’ on Tuesday. That cut will be available for the Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation 3 systems with Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades.
All three above mentioned ‘Rock Band’ tracks will set you back $1.99 each on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with an additional penny cost for the Wii, bringing its price to $2.00. For more information and a chance to listen to samples of all the songs, visit the ‘Rock Band’ website.
