Idag har #Harmonix tillkännagivit att en av de mest klassiska rockgrupperna genom tiderna kommer att bidra med låtar till #Rock Band. Gruppen är ingen mindre än Grateful Dead och enligt dagens pressmeddelande kommer inte mindre än 18 av deras låtar kunna köpas via de onlinetjänster som Playstation 3 och Xbox 360 bjuder på. Bland spåren hittar vi bland annat "Truckin", "Uncle John's Band", "Touch of Grey", "Sugar Magnolia", och "Casey Jones".

Tyvärr nämns inte några priser, men förhoppningsvis ligger det en bit under vad du i nuläget får betala för nya låtar till Xbox 360-versionen av #Guitar Hero II.

Harmonix, the leading developer of music-based games, MTV Games, a division of MTV Networks within Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), and Rhino Entertainment, a division of Warner Music Group (NYSE:WMG), announced a deal that will bring the legendary band Grateful Dead to the highly anticipated music videogame Rock Band. The iconic group is making 18 master recordings from its diverse catalog available as digitally distributed game levels following Rock Band’s release this holiday season. Among the songs available will be the classic Dead tracks “Truckin’,” “Uncle John’s Band,” “Touch of Grey,” “Sugar Magnolia,” and “Casey Jones.”

“Grateful Dead’s unique fusion of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, and jazz challenged traditional musical boundaries and pushed the limits of creativity to produce a signature sound that is undeniably their own,” stated Paul DeGooyer, MTV's Senior Vice President of Audio, Home Video and Electronic Games. “With an enormous legion of fans all over the world, Rock Band will give players a chance to interact with the music of these beloved rock pioneers and experience what Grateful Dead did best - jam from the depths of their souls.”
