For the first time in a long time, Harmonix weekly DLC for the Rock Band
Music Store consists of a single downloadable track. Next week, Incubus’ hit “Drive” will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii for $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts. It does not appear to have Pro Upgrades or keyboard support. The track will be (like all tracks) compatible with the upcoming Rock Band Blitz due out this Summer.
To help offset the disappointment of a single track, Harmonix also announced some of the DLC artists that will be appearing later this Summer, including Queens of the Stone Age, the B-52’s and Daughtry. So I guess that is something.
INCUBUS’ HIT SINGLE ”DRIVE” FROM THEIR DOUBLE PLATINUM SELLING ALBUM MAKE YOURSELF HEADED TO ROCK BAND!

Cambridge, Mass. – June 8th, 2012– Harmonix today announced that the hit track “Drive” from Incubus is headed to the Rock Band™ Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™.
