As we approach the five-year anniversary of the ROCK BAND platform this November, the folks at Harmonix just keep rolling out the new DLC to bring some fresh rock to both ROCK BAND 3, and the newly-released ROCK BAND BLITZ. Next week, 311 makes their Rock Band debut with a trio of tracks destined to be rocked by family and friends worldwide. The Rock Father has all the details below...

Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii

Known for their tight sound that seamlessly blends rock, funk, rap, reggae, and more, 311 has long been requested by Rock Band fans. On October 2nd, the band makes their debut on the Rock Band Music Store with three of its biggest tracks!

The chart-topping track that pushed the band into the mainstream spotlight in the mid-90s, “Down,” kicks off the three-pack. “Beautiful Disaster” from 1997’s Transistor and the reggae-tinged “Amber” from 2002’s From Chaos flesh out “311 Pack 01”! All of the tracks can be purchased as part of the pack, or individually; an optional Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade will also be available for “Down.”

Additionally, during the week of the release of “311 Pack 01,” Rock Band Blitz players will earn double Coins any time they play any of the three tracks from the pack!



Available on Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation®3 system (October 2nd, 2012):
  • 311 – “Down” X
  • 311 – “Beautiful Disaster” O
