Working Man, Closer to the Heart master tracks for Rock Band

Thu, Jul 3, 2008@11:33PM | comments removed/disabled

Harmonix developer hmxsean announced earlier today on the Rock Band forums that next week would see the release of 2 master tracks from Rush for their popular Rock Band video game; Closer to the Heart and Working Man. A cover version of Working Man had already been released for the game early this year. But this version is a master track and - even better - it's an alternate-take master from the same session where they recorded the original but with an alternate solo! The tracks will be released Tuesday, July 8th for the XBox and on Thursday, July 10th for Playstation. Just a couple of weeks ago I let you know that Rush's Moving Pictures would be the next full album to be made available for download for Rock Band. So I would think that this makes it more likely that the album release will be master tracks as well. Thanks to Byrddogg for the heads up.
