Left 4 dead 2 dlc ?

I found this story on  http://www.destructoid.com/ 

 Those who have played Left 4 Dead 2's "Dark Carnival" campaign will likely know of The Midnight Riders. They are a fictional rock band that Ellis seems to be rather fond of, and the campaign's finale involves the Survivors fighting on a stage set up for a Riders concert. It's an incredible moment, and we've just discovered a brand new Web site all about the band!

Here is the teaser site

 So what do you think about this ?

Why are they doing this only for L4D2? What happened to the promised DLC for L4D?

Dood, I've gotta get one of those Midnight Riders Tour t-shirts!!! 
 
Also...I will say it as well:  Left 4 Dead 2 trumps the FUCK out of Left 4 Dead, solely because of the Scavenge mode.

You're still going to have people that still resent Valve for releasing another L4D game, a year after the original one was released.

Well the game isn't a Giant leap forward. A way you do a sequel is What half-life 2 did for the original Half-life.

True, but at least HL2 was released a few years after the original HL.

Not only that, but it updated the graphics by far, added physics, and basically took a giant leap forward for the entire franchise. I have L4D2 and it is better, but not by as much as HL2 - HL1.

Yep, cant really compare them.  One was made with a brand new engine, physics, etc - the other made within a year of the other one.  You can argue it should have been an expansion, fine, but you still can't compare them.

1) Hl2 was 10 years after HL1. In those days of sparse good games it was possible, not today.
2) God of war 1 and 2 are so so similiar. Same gameplay, similiar graphics , only different levels and some different monsters. Same as l4d1 - > l4d2. Did any1 complain then? No, because people didnt expect quantom leaps that valve usually gives.
3) gears of war 1 and 2 are so similiar its scary. One is a sequal to the other in plot and some monsters and a few weapons. But a non gear head cant tell the difference.
4)  as I was writing this I found this :

It sums up my idea in a much more refined manner.

@Snail: I think he's referring to Crash Course, which is DLC on the Xbox. Don't be mean before you get your facts straight.

Actually it did. There where new survivor maps and a new campaign added. The campaign wasn't very good but it was still DLC.

@Three0neFive:

None of you are witty, sorry. 
 
That was an update by the way, hardly DLC. I see Valve is doing to L4D2 what they were supposed to have done with the first one from start, as a matter of fact, the whole sequelcould nearly have been achieved through a year or so of DLC's (weapons, maps, etc. are characteristics of DLC).
