Download Foo pack
Gamers, there’s a new download pack for the game Rocksmith, and it has Foo Fighters’ stamp of approval. The band has offered up a few songs as part of a download pack for the Guitar Hero-type game that allows you to actually use a real guitar. The pack includes five songs that span the band’s career including “My Hero,” “Best of You,” and even “Walk.” You can download the pack now on the Playstation and Xbox platforms.
Tour to be filmed
Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor has revealed plans to record and release a live DVD around the House of Gold and Bones concept albums. Taylor says that when the band hits the road in 2014, they’ll bring cameras with them to capture all the craziness of their shows. The cool thing is, they plan on stopping in each market for two shows each. The first night they’ll play House of Gold and Bones Part 1 from top to bottom. The next night they’ll play Part 2.
Jesse Leach doing his thing
New Killswitch album out in April
Killswitch Engage will be releasing their new album in April 2013. That was the announcement at a show last week and the band says they’re blown away by front man Jesse Leach’s performance. Leach rejoined the band after years of being away—but things were not completely set in stone. Bassist Mike D’Antonio said that Leach wanted to record two songs, go on tour to see how the band worked together, and then started busting out all kinds of new and unique stuff for the new album. Leach was Killswitch’s original singer, but left the band only to come back after a nearly 10 year break.
