Texas Flood Hits Rock Band

Rock Band adds the electric sound of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble with the full Texas Flood album

Harmonix and MTV Games announced today that the debut album from late electric blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble will be added to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content. The weekly Rock Band music catalogue update also includes “New” from alternative rockers No Doubt.

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s debut album Texas Flood (1983) sold more than 500,000 copies and cracked the top 40 of the Billboard 200 charts within a year of its release. All ten songs featured on the album, including the popular studio cuts “Pride and Joy” and “Rude Mood,” will be available as downloadable Rock Band tracks individually or as a full album.
