The Vines burst onto the international rock scene with great critical acclaim for their 2002 debut album, Highly Evolved. They appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone, received a 2002 ARIA for Breathrough Artist in Australia and were called by some media â€œthe saviors of rock.â€ Next week, they will debut in the Rock Band Music Store with a five pack of songs.
â€œThe Vines Pack 01â€ will include â€œGet Out,â€ â€œHeâ€™s a Rockerâ€ and â€œOrange Amberâ€ from 2008â€™s Melodia, which debuted at No. 12 on the Australian ARIA charts; â€œRideâ€ from 2004â€™s Winning Days and â€œOuttathawayâ€ from 2006â€™s Vision Valley. The band is currently working on its fifth studio album, with a release date yet to be announced.
Sweet Billy Pilgrim, an English atmospheric pop-rock band, will also debut next week in the Rock Band Music Store with a track taken from their album, Twice Born Men, which is the finest album ever recorded in a shed. Massive critical acclaim has followed the band since the albumâ€™s release, and they have won over fans at their beautiful live shows as they tour Europe supporting artists such as Jamie Cullum and The Who. Fans can play their single, â€œFuture Perfect Tense,â€ in Rock Band beginning next week.
