Umphrey's McGee Join Rock Band

FIRST OF SEVERAL UMPH SONGS READIED FOR POPULAR VIDEO GAME

Umphrey's McGee will be launching their song "1348" on the Rock Band Network this week. This marks the first release by the band in any video game. Umphreys McGee has been working with former Harmonix Music Systems employee and current Rock Band Network freelancer Andrew Buch. Buch is working on several songs for the program, including "1348" and "Miss Tinkles Overture." "1348" is the first of these songs to be made available, with plans for others to follow shortly.

Buch, whose mind-numbingly difficult "Trippolette" is one the top-five best-selling launch songs on the Rock Band Network, has worked on several games in the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises. Samples of his work can be found on his website.

"1348" is scheduled to release sometime this week, and will be available to be purchased in Rock Band 2 on the XBOX 360 via the newly implemented Rock Band Network Store. It will additionally be available to purchase via the XBOX Live Marketplace.
