Critically acclaimed rock group Mudvayne, whose hit single â€œDeterminedâ€ is featured on EAâ€™s Need For Speed Underground 2 soundtrack, is calling on all XboxÂ® gamers to challenge them as part of Xbox Liveâ€™sâ„¢ â€œGame With Fameâ€ program on April 20.
Players interested in challenging the band must sign up by April 13 and can do so by logging onto http://www.mudvayne.com/xboxgamewithfame/.
Recently named to this yearâ€™s list of Ozzfest main stage performers, Mudvayne currently holds the #2 slot on Billboardâ€™s Active Rock Chart with their new hit single â€œHappy?â€ As they gear up for the April 12 release of their highly anticipated new album, Lost and Found, the group is looking forward to some intense wheel-to-wheel action against gamers in one of Electronic Artsâ€™ most successful racing games to date.
â€œBeing able to tie the blistering passion of Mudvayne and their fans with the aggression and obsession of the Xbox Live audience is a recipe for virtual mayhem. We couldn't be happier to see these two worlds collideâ€ said Vice President of Epic Records Online Cory Llewellyn.
The extreme game world in Need For Speed Underground 2 gives gamers the ability to explore the world of street racing while other racers attempt to school you in the ways of the underground racing world.
