For the game Outsider Studios have boughten in a team of indie bands and various musicians, to create a unique and tight soundtrack.

Here’s an official story overview via the PlayStation Blog:

You start the game playing as Frances Finklestein, the one-time manager of the all-time greatest rock band that Great Britain ever produced: The Deadbeats. After being invited to a gig in a town no one’s ever heard of, Frances is trapped in a holding cell, charged with the crime of… being alive! A mysterious cellmate teaches you the power of possession. You learn to “body­-hop”, leaving your corpse in the holding cell and jumping from ghost to vampire to werewolf to zombie. Each creature’s skills and abilities bring you one step closer to getting your body out of lock-up and getting the hell out of Wailing Heights. But of course, it’s never that easy…

A release date was not provided, nor a price point. Below, you can check out the new trailer:
