Another larger-than-usual downloadable content update is headed to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Rock Band next week, with three tracks each from singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and hard rock band Disturbed.

Three master tracks from Buffett — “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Margaritaville,” and “Volcano” — were re-recorded specifically for the game, and will be available for $1.99 (160 Microsoft points) each or $5.49 (440 Microsoft points) for the set. According to the announcement on the official Rock Band forum, Buffett is a fan of the game, thus explaining why he chose to re-record the songs for release as downloadable content.

All three of the Disturbed tracks — “Indestructible,” “Inside the Fire,” and “Perfect Insanity” — are included on the band’s forthcoming fourth album, Indestructible, which will be released on Tuesday, June 3. Two of the tracks (“Indestructible” and “Inside the Fire”) can be obtained for free by pre-ordering the album from, but those looking to purchase any of the songs can do so for $0.99 (80 Microsoft points) each or $2.99 (240 Microsoft points) for the pack.

As usual, the new content will be available on Tuesday, June 3 on the Xbox Live Marketplace, with the PlayStation Store content expected to go live on Thursday, June 5.
