Rock Band 3 will be the recipient of three new tracks next week from Foreigner and Nightwish.
Sorry Tarja-era enthusiasts: it’s Amaranth from 2007′s Dark Passion Play with Anette Olzon on vocals. Still, any Nightwish is better than no Nightwish, even if it would have been hilarious hearing your friends try and hit three different octaves Tarja-style. However, if they can handle a Paramore tune without cracking too horribly, they can pull of Amaranth with ease.
The Foreigner tracks are the ballads I Want to Know What Love Is and Waiting for a Girl Like You. Might wanna turn the lights down low for those, and look deep into your lady’s eyes while singing it. Let us know if it works out for you.
Each track will run you the usual $1.99/160 MS Points/ 200 WiiP, and all feature keyboard support. Pro Guitar/Bass support is available for Amaranth, for the extra 99 cents.
All three tracks will arrive on PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 August 14, and in Europe on PSN the following day.
