Hey gang,

We've hit 2 million likes on the Rock Band Facebook page! Not only is this an epic milestone for our community, it also marks the finish line for an early DLC reveal that we've been teasing for the last few weeks.

Though we had initially announced it as a tiered reveal (i.e. announcing 4 artists if we hit by 9/19, 3 artists if we hit by 9/26, etc), you were all so supportive of the drive to 2 million likes and you generated so much awesome discussion that we're just going to go ahead and announce 4 artists anyway!

In the coming weeks and months, you can look forward to seeing DLC packs from the following artists:

Coldplay, a highly requested community favorite, will join RB for the very first time!
Breaking Benjamin will add more tracks, including a few key requests after their last pack
Stevie Wonder, another newcomer to RB, will delight keyboardists and dazzle the rest of the band with funk


Rounding out the 4 artist announcement, there's also a single coming from:

Dream Theater, one of the most challenging bands featured in RB, and a favorite among the hardcore

With these artists (and many more!) in the pipeline, we hope you guys are as excited about the upcoming DLC as we are. With over 200 consecutive weeks of DLC under our belts, it's great to see the community conversations, song recommendations and play through discussions remain constant over the course of the last 4 years. This is an amazingly supportive community and all of us here at Harmonix genuinely appreciate all the love you continue to give the Rock Band franchise.

Rock on!
Discuss!

(Also, I'm super excited for Dream Theater)

    Stevie Wonder and Dream Theater are good. Don't care for the other two. Wait, just a single for Dream Theater? :(

    Welp. Radio Rock, Coldplay, Stevie Wonder, and Dream Theater. I think I'm taking a hiatus from the game. Although I do like Dream Theater.

    EDIT: I forgot Dance Gavin Dance and Between the Buried and me have songs in the RBN pipeline.. nevermind.

    Coldplay? Hehe. You still have those points saved up, GNF?

    Awesome for the other 3. Only a single from Dream Theater?

    Oh well. I assume it'll be an awesome one.

    PLEASE OH PLEASE GIVE US BREAKING BENJAMIN'S SIMPLE DESIGN!

    God I hope Coldplay gets more than a 4 pack. Been waiting for them forever!!!

    Also pretty excited for Stevie Wonder and Dream Theater. Not a fan of Breaking Benjamin so will likely pass on that, but the other three are good!

    coldplay is cool (depending on which songs). wonder is awesome.

    don't care about the other 2.

    I'll have to check out sales totals.

    I don't understand why Breaking Benjamin gets lumped into these "early announcement" types of deals. They are pretty average to me, and not worthy.

    The other artists are pretty close to "announcement" worthy, though. Stevie Wonder and Coldplay should be attractive to keys freaks. Both are good additions to the platform.

    Wish there was a guitar heavy mega-band sprinkled in here, though.

    Anyways, thanks to HMX for announcing early.

    Coldplay and Stevie Wonder = AWESOME

    Dream Theater and Breaking Benjamin = No thanks....

    Coldplay - always good to see the Brits get some DLC love and even Wet Blanket will probably be positive around that one. Something for everyone with DT for the challenge, Stevie Wonder for the Keys, Coldplay for the singers and Breaking Benjamin to upset everyone on the forums and their clear recent hate of anything metal and modern.

    Stevie Wonder is awesome. Looking forward to that.

    Don't really care for the other 3 artists, so likely passes there.

    Great announcement, I'll take all of the Coldplay songs and maybe the Stevie Wonder and Dream Theater songs. Pass on Breaking Benjamin though.

    COLDPLAY!!!!! OMGOMG!!!!

    I'll buy anything from Coldplay. Seriously. Although, "Fix You" is my most wanted track.

    I'm sure they're releasing Colplay in correspondence with their new album.

    Thanks HMX! Congrats to everyone else who likes the bands!

    Nice list of bands there. Excited for Coldplay, Stevie and BB to a lesser extent. Never been a Dream Theatre fan though.

    Re-posting here.

    Meh, maybe a few for my 'list'. That thing'll have a good selection of stuff if I get excited about a RB game again (looking at you future unknown).

    Did you see my post about you in the other thread? I think you'd laugh

    I'm... whelmed.

    Coldplay is the sort of group that I end up liking after hearing the songs, but not one I'm going to be super excited about.

    Stevie Wonder has hits I love, but he has so many hits that odds aren't strong that one of the ones I immediately would love.

    Dream Theater is just not my thing, and I'm unfamiliar with Breaking Benjamin one way or the other.

    This could be great, and it could suck. I'm... whelmed.

    Yes, I've been watching a lot of "Young Justice" lately.

    You don't get to look at the announcement until 2012.
