In addition to the previously reveled three-pack from THE KILLERS, Harmonix has announced several other artists that will make up next week's Rock Band DLC (Downloadable Content) update. Tracks from the Chris Cornell-fronted grunge trailblazers SOUNDGARDEN will accompany THE KILLERS, along with legendary Swedish guitarist YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and metal group LAMB OF GOD.

As usual, these downloads will arrive Tuesday on Xbox Live and Thursday on the PlayStation Store, and will be available individually for $1.99 (160 Microsoft points) and in bundled three-packs where applicable for $5.49 (440 Microsoft points).

The entire list of next week's offerings looks something like this:

* "Mr. Brightside" by THE KILLERS
* "Smile Like You Mean It" by THE KILLERS
* "Spaceman" by THE KILLERS
* "Caprici Di Diablo" by YNGWIE MALMSTEEN
* "Damnation Game" by YNGWIE MALMSTEEN
* "Jesus Christ Pose" by SOUNDGARDEN
* "Pretty Noose" by SOUNDGARDEN
* "Laid To Rest" by LAMB OF GOD

Yet another diverse batch of songs as the Rock Band platform marches ever closer to the year-end goal of 500 songs. Between the awesomely laid-back "Pretty Noose" and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN's trademark blistering solos, next week should be able to cater to a wide spectrum of tastes and skill levels.
