UPDATE - 8/27@4:19PM: It looks like the release of Moving Pictures for Rock Band will not occur this week and may be delayed as much as a couple of weeks. Here's the official announcement:

... Unfortunately, due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we won't be able to release Rush's "Moving Pictures" this week. We'll be working on it as hard as we can, but it looks like it could be a couple of weeks to fix. In the meantime we will be moving around our schedule so we still have DLC coming out each week (including this week, info to follow in another announcement). ...

Thanks to Danny for the heads up.

UPDATE - 8/26@3:37PM: Still no update from Harmonix. However, the original thread where they announced the delay has finally been shut down after reaching over 1300 posts! Crazy Rush fans ... :)

Today Harmonix Music Systems released Rush's Moving Pictures album for download for the Rock Band video game ... or ... it was supposed to have released it for download today. Apparently there are some technical difficulties having to do with the vocal track on YYZ ... the problem being that there is no vocal track on YYZ. :) YYZ happens to be the first instrumental track to be released for Rock Band. As of this post there still is no word on when the issue will be resolved. Last week Harmonix announced that Moving Pictures would be the 4th full album to be released as downloadable content for the popular game. All tracks are original master track recordings. The plan was to release the album for the XBox today and PlayStation on Thursday. Hopefully they'll work things out soon. Thanks to Justin for the heads up.
