"Pop-punk" band Plain White T's included.
For Immediate Release
BURBANK, Calif. – (November 21, 2008) – Disney Interactive Studios has teamed up with pop-punk band Plain White T’s for content, videos and promotional efforts for its upcoming music video game Ultimate Band. Developed by Fall Line Studio in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ultimate Band takes gamers of all ages on a journey to achieve rock stardom starting as garage-band beginners and working toward the ultimate rock notoriety. With the Plain White T’s featured in Ultimate Band, fans can play their favorite band’s music in an accessible game with great value.
Two-time Grammy nominee Plain White T’s are featured in Ultimate Band for Wii™ with exclusive videos including an acoustic performance of the single “Natural Disaster.” A re-recorded version of the Plain White T’s “Our Time Now” is also featured in the game allowing players to use male or female voices for their own uniquely customized Frontman. As players progress through the game’s garage to stardom storyline, they unlock specially designed Plain White T’s band characters while performing “Our Time Now.” These characters can be then played during any song throughout the game.
“Our Time Now” is also featured in Ultimate Band for Nintendo DS™. Players increase their fans by strumming along to the chords on the lead, rhythm or bass guitars, as well as rocking out on the drums.
