Today Jan. 28, 2014 Realta Entertainment Group released a new music store and the first installment of download content for their recent music video game "BandFuse: Rock Legends" (you can read our review here). Each DLC track features support for guitar, bass, and vocals with a video and integration in all the software's modes, most importantly Lick Lab and Practice Mode.
Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” and “Love or Confusion” from the album "Are You Experienced" are the two "headliners" in this first wave of DLC, and are just two of 15 Hendrix songs headed to the game. Other artists being offered include The Offspring, Incubus, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Boston, Yes, Blues Traveler, Filter, and Pantera.
Check out the full list of new "BandFuse: Rock Legend" DLC songs:
- Jimi Hendrix - “Fire”
- Jimi Hendrix - “Love or Confusion”
- Blues Traveler - “Run-Around”
- Boston - “Foreplay/Long Time”
- Filter - “Hey Man, Nice Shot”

The first "BandFuse: Rock Legends" backing tracks are:
Marcus Henderson -“Funky Canon”

Marcus Henderson - “Backing Beats Pack 1” (Three looping drum tracks)
In addition to new songs the "BandFuse: Rock Legends Music Store" boasts additional backing tracks so players can create and record their own music. Each downloadable song comes with a music video, multi-instrument support and Lick Lab learning modules for $2.99, and each backing track is $1.99.
We're looking forward to playing "Pardon Me" by Incubus the most. How about you?
The new songs add diversity and new life to the 55 on-disc track library of "massive genre-jumping songs ranging from rock to metal and punk to funk."
Later this year Jimi Hendrix will be integrated into the game as a rock legend, with interviews from present day guitarists discusssing his technique and experimental style along with archival video footage.
You can demo the game at Guitar Center, which is offering a "BandFuse: Rock Legends Guitar Bundle," that includes a specially-priced Fender Squier Bullet guitar, copy of "BandFuse: Rock Legends" video game for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, and a "BandFuse" guitar cable for $179.99.
