Oberhaching, Germany – Twelve notes. That’s all that it takes to create beautiful and diverse music across an eclectic mix of styles. Yet in the right hands they are the foundation for a wonderfully weird musical chaos. Developer Produktivkeller Studios and Publisher SunDust are proud to announce that the PC sleeper hit Disaster Band not only extends its touring run with an upgrade, available today, as well as a whopping 55% discount in the current Steam Summer Sale. The chaotic and highly entertaining rhythm game will be moving to more stages than ever, when the curtain lifts on the console versions on July 11, 2024.

Up to 4 players can pick up their instruments on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch and try to master the classical music tracks included, extend their library via Mod.io or try their best to play one of the songs supplied by the community. Disaster Band will allow full cross-platform multiplayer, so regardless of your preferred platform, band members are easy to find.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart mentioned that the music is not found in the notes, but in the silence between. Everybody who picks up Disaster Band and either plays solo, as part of a dynamic duo, a terrible trio or quirky quartet will agree, once they pick up classical instruments like the violin, flute, violoncello or trombone or even one of the more exotic contraptions and try to follow the notes in order to fight your way up the worldwide leaderboards.

There is nothing wrong with playing wrong – unless you want to crack that highscore. But with the creative freedom to play any given note at any given time, you can practice or improvise, while you discover the music. And don’t forget: Practice makes perfect! And perfection will eventually lead to higher scores. But where is the fun in that? With Disaster Band’s dynamic sound engine even playing the wrong notes leads to tremendous fun and endless entertainment for all ages and skill levels.
