Hey gang,

California-based rock group Incubus had been making music for nearly ten years before it hit the mainstream with their chart-topping third album, 1999’s Make Yourself. “Drive,” the third single from the record and the track that earned the band Billboard’s Modern Rock Single of the Year award, comes to the Rock Band Music Store on June 12th!

The addition of “Drive” grows the library of Incubus tracks playable in Rock Band, which includes “Adolescents,” “Dig,” and “Wish You Were Here,” all available now on the Rock Band Music Store.

Available on Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation®3 system (June 12th, 2012):

• Incubus – “Drive”

(This track will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system June 13th)

Price:

$1.99 USD (160 Microsoft Points ™, 200 Wii Points™) per song

** Dates for Rock Band game tracks are tentative and subject to change. **

Don't panic. From HMXHenry via Twitter yesterday: "Preemptive level setting that won't be mentioned in the press release tomorrow: last min drama leaves us w/ 1 RB song to announce tomorrow. Just wanted to clarify it's not deliberate or a DLC trend. "Licensing is hard". We'll announce a few upcoming bands as a make good. Enjoy!"

So, just FYI - it's not intentionally one single this week, and this isn't setting a precedent.

Fans can expect even more great music this summer, as the number of available songs on the Music Store continues to grow, with tracks from Queens of the Stone Age, Daughtry, the B-52s, and more available in the coming months!

To answer a few questions:
Q. Why didn't we add the licensing hiccup info from HMXHenry's tweet to the OP?
A. Because HMXHenry is in LA and I am not as good at the forums as he is.

Q. Will we ever find out who the singles were that got pulled?
A. No. Everyone has it spot on. If they're never released, we can't risk hurting the relationship with artist(s)/label(s). And if they are released, well then you guys might hate them for this week. HOWEVER, we CAN tell you that they were NOT Incubus songs. So don't get mad at them. It wasn't supposed to be an Incubus 3-pack; it was three singles, including "Drive." Just wanted to make that clear.

Q. Don't you guys have backups for this kind of situation?
A. Yes. We do. But the issues that arose came up so late that it was too late to send our backups into the release cycle with Xbox, PSN, & Wii.
