by Rainier on July 10, 2009 @ 9:29 a.m. PDT

With simple directional and space bar keystrokes, Audition, a free-to-play online dance sensation, players perform hip-hop style dance steps and choreographed routines which require precise timing and rhythm.

Redbana knows Audition is ready to rock with the addition of popular trio Lifehouse and the lead track, Disarray, from its album Who We Are. Lifehouse is bound to earn heavy requests from the 200,000+ dancers in the game.

Throughout July, users can create and submit 90 second videos showcasing their personal brand of creativity and uniqueness by dressing the part, demonstrating “mad skillz” and – most importantly – having fun!

Video submissions will be accepted until July 31st at midnight, with winners announced the following week. In addition to Redbana Cash that can be used to buy virtual items like clothes and accessories, the first place winner will receive an iPod Shuffle engraved with their in-game moniker.

The addition of Lifehouse ushers in several new sounds in Audition, including those from Swedish rock band The Sounds, whose definitive New Wave appeal manifested in Tony the Beat and Dance with Me, a perfect fit for the game’s dancing environment.

Jennifer Lopez is also expecting players to Do it Well, the aptly named title of her prominently featured new single in Audition. And you can expect Audition to keep Poppin off with Chris Brown lending his mega-hit single with the same name. Yellowcard also makes a highly anticipated debut in Audition.

The diverse range of songs recently added to Audition include:

  • Armin Van Buuren – Communication
  • Billie Holiday – Spreadin’ Rhythm Around
  • Chris Brown – Poppin
  • Earth, Wind & Fire – Boogie Wonderland
  • Fantasia – When I See U

With simple directional and space bar keystrokes, Audition players perform hip-hop style dance steps and choreographed routines which require precise timing and rhythm. Players compete in various dance modes, each with its own distinctive features and objectives. Audition’s in-game reward system gives dancers, ‘Beats,’ or currency used to purchase a variety of items from the cash shop.
