Rock Band Blitz -- the new downloadable extension of the popular plastic instrument franchise -- will be released on PlayStation Network on August 28 and Xbox Live Arcade on August 29, developer Harmonix announced this week. Unlike the previous entries, Rock Band Blitz does not utilize instrument controllers, instead letting you use a standard controller to play through a more arcade-oriented experience with power-ups and bright, colorful visuals.

The $15 game will launch with more than 20 brand new built-in tracks, though it's only the tip of the iceberg as all previous available tracks from the Rock Band series can be imported into the game; and for those who want to check out these new songs in Rock Band 3, they're also freely importable to that game. In addition to previously announced songs, Harmonix revealed that Avenged Sevenfold's "So Far Away," Fun's "We Are Young (ft. Janelle Monae)", Kool & The Gang's "Jungle Boogie," and My Chemical Romance's "Sing" are all part of the game.

    If anything, Every Time I Die are a punctual band. You can expect a new album from them every other year, with several tours in between.

    Hands down, Twin Peaks has the best score - and intro song - in the history of television. The only non-download way for fans to listen to the OST is a CD from the early '90s when CD audio compression wasn't so hot. (Don't get me wrong.

    You've got to hand it to them. The boys in Every Time I Die are extremely reliable, having put out a new album every two years since 2001, save for a single three-year gap.
