Singles taken from upcoming albums.
The downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 this week includes a single taken from progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria‘s upcoming album Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, and one from rock quartet Greta Van Fleet‘s Anthem of the Peaceful Army.
This week’s DLC tracks are:
- Coheed and Cambria – “Unheavenly Creatures”
- Greta Van Fleet – “When the Curtain Falls”
Both tracks are part of the Rock Band Rivals Season 8 Spotlight Pass and will be available from 27th September.
The following descriptions are taken from the release notes:
Coheed and Cambria is continuing the story of the Amory Wars with their upcoming album, Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. It will be the band’s ninth album and takes place the furthest along the Amory Wars timeline. The band’s last six albums have hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, and, based on the currently released songs from Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, we’re sure this album is going to be a hit as well. This week, expect to see the title track of the album, “Unheavenly Creatures”, in Rock Band Music Stores near you. Singing to Claudio Sanchez’s vocals has always been a challenge in Rock Band, and it’s the same in “Unheavenly Creatures”, with quite a range to be found between the chorus and verses. Drums and guitar keep the energy, with drums pounding along to vocals in the chorus. Be sure to check out this latest Amory Wars entry later this week!
Greta Van Fleet made a splash last year as they began topping charts with a throwback rock sound. With their debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army soon to be released, Rock Band is proud to feature current single “When The Curtain Falls” in the Rock Band Music Store this week. Fun fact: “When The Curtain Falls” is also the first song that Greta Van Fleet played on television. “When The Curtain Falls” jumps from the word go, with a sweet guitar riff and some intricate drumming immediately following a count-in. It’ll take some skill to match the highs of Josh Kiszka’s voice, but it feels good to hit. Unsurprisingly, you can expect to pull out a gnarly guitar solo near the end of the song, so don’t get tripped up.
Tracks can be purchased individually.
