Fall Out Boy Returns to Rock Band

All it took was a Fall Out Boy breakup to get them back on Rock Band. We may not be able to see Fall Out Boy on the stage, but at least we can see them on our gaming consoles now that Harmonix announced that a 3-pack of hits from Fall Out Boy and a single from classic rockers Deep Purple will be available beginning August 16th in the Rock Band 3 Music Store for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and Wii.

Fall Out Boy make their triumphant return to Rock Band this week, dropping an amazing 3-pack of some of their biggest hits. The pack leads off with 2 tracks from Fall Out Boy’s 2005 major label debut, From Under the Cork Tree, “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and “Dance, Dance”. The pack is rounded out by “Thnks fr th Mmrs” the smash hit from the band’s platinum follow-up, Infinity on High.

Joining this Fall Out Boy 3-pack is an amazing single from Deep Purple, “Child in Time”. The hard rock pioneers are best known to Rock Band fans as the band behind “Highway Star”, the standout Rock Band track that also underscored the first Rock Band disc’s cinematic. Child in Time is an unbelievable riff driven anthem, from the 1970 Deep Purple release Deep Purple in Rock, and clocks in at an impressive 10 minutes and 18 seconds.

Those only interested in Fall Out Boy will be able to purchase the 3-pack of songs for $5.49 (440 Microsoft Points, 550 Wii Points) or the individual songs for $1.99 each.
