Umphrey’s McGee will be among the first group of bands to offer songs at the just-launched (beta testing period) Rock Band Network.
The much buzzed-about video game platform works with Xbox video game systems to allow bands to Xbox users, and to offer fans a way dig into their favorite band’s music in ways they have never been able to before.
Umphrey’s McGee has been working with former Harmonix Music Systems employee — and now “Rock Band” freelancer – Andrew Buch. An alumn of Berklee College of Music, Buch has author several Umphrey’s McGee songs for the new program, including “1348” and “Miss Tinkles Overture.” These songs and others will be made available within the next few months – when the first wave of the Rock Band Network releases are scheduled to hit upon the release of the new Xbox 360 system.
