A Rock Band Rewind classic to complement a new track.
This week’s Rock Band 4 downloadable content includes a couple of rock songs, one from the early 2000s and the other – more contemporary one – from last year.
The two DLC tracks this week are:
- The Strokes – “Reptilia” (Rewind)
- The Warning – “Survive” (Free for owners of Rock Band Rivals only)
Tracks can be bought individually; “Survive” is a free song for Rock Band Rivals owners.
Taken from the release notes:
The Strokes first appeared in Rock Band with their single “Reptilia”. A hit on the Modern Rock Tracks in America and the UK Singles Chart, the song has become one of the band’s best known tracks thanks to a strong guitar line and pop culture appearances throughout the 2000s. This week, we’re releasing the track for anyone to purchase, not just those who already had the Rock Band 1 export prior to Rock Band 4’s release. The drums are fast and dense, as you’d expect from the garage punk sound. There’s a ton of kicks all over, including when the song comes down in the prechorus, so don’t think your feet will get a break.
The Warning are a special band to us here at Harmonix. Originally sisters that played Rock Band together, they’re now sisters that play in a real band together. That’s super cool! We included a song from their first EP on the Rock Band 4 disc (“Free Falling”, go check it out again) and now we’ve got a song from The Warning’s debut album last year just for Rivals owners. “Survive” features some good harmonies from the members of the band and a fun drum part, changing up a few times. The guitar’s got a chugging chord pattern throughout, and plays a quick repeating riff through the outro. Be sure to pick it up and check out the rest of XXI Century Blood.
Both tracks will be available from Thursday, 17th May.
