For this week's lineup of newly added tracks on the Rock Band Network, metal and rock fans can look forward to new tracks from Halcyon Way, Rotting Christ, and Devin Towsend, with PS3 players getting more After the Burial and Soilwork in early October. The Rock Band Network website was updated with the following statement about the delay in PS3 songs and the lower number of PS3 tracks versus Xbox 360 songs:

"There will be no North America PS3 RBN release on Tuesday, 9/27/2011. Instead, we will release the songs listed above on 10/4/2011 along with the 5 songs regularly scheduled for that day (so 10 songs total will be released to North America PS3 RBN on 10/4/2011).

"We've got something extra-special planned on PS3 RBN for the release on Tuesday, October 11. Look for our upcoming announcement in the 'New to RBN' on Thursday, October 6!

"The Rock Band Network was developed upon Microsoft's XNA technology, and all RBN songs have 30-day exclusivity on the Xbox 360. However, select RBN 2.0 songs are submitted to the PS3 by Sony and Harmonix at the rate of 5 songs a week, as determined by factors such as popularity and community interest. To request future songs for the PS3, go to the forum thread here. We're always interested in hearing what songs our PS3 customers would enjoy!"

The following songs are now available on the Xbox 360:

Black Veil Brides - "Children Surrender" (160 MSP)
Black Veil Brides - "Heaven's Calling" (160 MSP)
Black Veil Brides - "Perfect Weapon" (160 MSP)
Devin Townsend - "Solar Winds" (160 MSP)
Halcyon Way - "Mouth Without a Head" (80 MSP)
Rotting Christ - "Fire Death and Fear" (160 MSP)
Verah Falls - "A Family Affair" (160 MSP)

The following songs are coming to the PS3 edition on Tuesday, 10/4/2011 (North America) and Wednesday, 9/28/2011 (Europe):

After the Burial - "Pendulum" ($1.99)
Soilwork - "Stabbing the Drama" ($1.99)
