Full album downloads for Rock Band start next week

We’d heard rumors, but today it’s official: starting next week, players of Rock Band will be able to download full albums of additional songs for $15. The first out of the gate would be Judas Priest’s Screaming for Vengeance, followed the week after by The Cars, and then the Pixies’ Doolittle, and then Nevermind by Nirvana, one the fans have wanted for awhile.

Harmonix likely won’t be able to keep the pace of one a week as they do with song packs, as album take longer to mix and code than a handful of songs, but if they can find a way, the users will be very happy indeed.
