Harmonix will introduce two new artists to Rock Band on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 when 80´s New Wave Band Flock of Seagulls bring their biggest hit “I Ran” from their eponymous 1982 debut album (also famous for being one of the theme songs in Grand Theft Auto Vice City) to Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz. Also joining from the 80´s is one of the greatest singer/songwriters to ever exist in Billy Squier. Two of his greatest hits join the platform with “Everybody Wants You” from his 1982 album Emotions in Motion and “Stroke” from his 1981 debut Album Don´t Say No (let the innuendos begin now.)
