English, and Australian rock.

This week’s downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 features a new song from an upcoming album by The 1975 and the most recent single from 5 Seconds of Summer.

Available from Thursday, 2nd August, this week’s tracks are:

  • The 1975 – “Give Yourself A Try”
  • 5 Seconds of Summer – “Youngblood”

The following song descriptions are take from the release notes:

We’re kicking things off with “Give Yourself A Try”, the lead single from The 1975’s upcoming album A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships. The 1975 have been playing together since they were teenagers, leading to their self-titled debut album releasing at #1 on the UK Album Charts. Their next album also topped the UK Albums Chart AND the Billboard 200 in the US. If “Give Yourself A Try” is any indication of how their new album will sound, we can’t wait to hear it. Matty Healy’s vocals are the center, and to keep you on your toes, you’ll see a sudden quick pitch jumps through the song. The tempo makes for a stamina-testing drum chart, so be sure to warm up first and then hop into this one! You can check out new music and buy merch from The 1975 at https://the1975.com/ 

“Youngblood” is the title track and most recent single from 5 Seconds of Summer’s newest album. Already spending eight weeks at the very top of the charts in their homeland of Australia, the song has been climbing the American charts all summer as well. This was spurred along by the album debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200, making 5 Seconds of Summer the first band to have their first three albums debut at the top of the chart. The chorus thumps thanks to a 1-2 punch from the bass and drums, so be sure to work together to keep it sounding crisp. Guitarists will play an arpeggiated part throughout, where slip-ups will punish you more than you may expect. The Meet You There Tour starts up next month, so head over to https://www.5sos.com/ to see when 5 Seconds of Summer will stop by your town, and to learn more about the band!

DLC tracks can be purchased individually and for the first two weeks after release these two can be bought at a discount.
