Unreleased Artist Overview

Several amazing music acts generously donated their music to support the American Red Cross through RockBandRelief.org. Unfortunately, the Rock Band track authoring and testing process is quite long and involved. While this helps ensure that the quality of downloadable tracks published through Rock Band Network (RBN) are of comparable quality with those released directly by Harmonix, it also led to several great tracks being partially completed, but not successfully released prior to Harmonix discontinuing RBN releases in 2013.

We are so grateful to the artists in this section for their willingness to participate in this unique fundraiser and hope you will explore and support their music. You can check out the gameplay preview videos for those tracks that were partially completed. We will be storing the working files for all of these tracks so that we can revisit them if Harmonix revisits a 3rd party publishing model like RBN in support of future generations of music gaming!
