Mudvayne "Determined" Against Xbox Gamers

Powerhouse Rock Group Set To Play Need For Speed Underground 2 In Latest Xbox Live “Game With Fame” Session

Critically acclaimed rock group Mudvayne, whose hit single “Determined” is featured on EA’s Need For Speed Underground 2 soundtrack, is calling on all Xbox® gamers to challenge them as part of Xbox Live’s™ “Game With Fame” program on April 20.

Players interested in challenging the band must sign up by April 13 and can do so by logging onto http://www.mudvayne.com/xboxgamewithfame/.

Recently named to this year’s list of Ozzfest main stage performers, Mudvayne currently holds the #2 slot on Billboard’s Active Rock Chart with their new hit single “Happy?” As they gear up for the April 12 release of their highly anticipated new album, Lost and Found, the group is looking forward to some intense wheel-to-wheel action against gamers in one of Electronic Arts’ most successful racing games to date.

“Being able to tie the blistering passion of Mudvayne and their fans with the aggression and obsession of the Xbox Live audience is a recipe for virtual mayhem. We couldn't be happier to see these two worlds collide” said Vice President of Epic Records Online Cory Llewellyn.

The extreme game world in Need For Speed Underground 2 gives gamers the ability to explore the world of street racing while other racers attempt to school you in the ways of the underground racing world.

Xbox Live's “Game with Fame” program gives Xbox Live subscribers the unique opportunity to play against some of today's hottest stars. Past “Game with Fame” celebrity players include The Strokes, Hoobastank, Three Doors Down, Incubus and Buffalo Bills' Running Back Willis McGahee.
