First update for the month of October.

This week’s downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 comprises two songs by a couple of American rock bands: one by Clutch and another by The Protomen.

The following tracks will be available from 3rd October:

  • Clutch – “The Mob Goes Wild”
  • The Protomen – “This City Made Us” *

*Part of the Rock Band Rivals Season 13 Spotlight Pass.

Songs can be bought individually.

The following descriptions are taken from this week’s release notes:

“The Mob Goes Wild” is the Clutch song of choice this week. From Blast Tyrant Atlas of the Invisible World with Illustrations of Strange Beasts and Phantoms, “The Mob Goes Wild” continued riding the success of the band’s prior singles, with a ton of radio play for the track. Blast Tyrant even got a reissue seven years later! Riff-heavy, the guitar will hold it down for most of the song, barring the quick solo that appears before the last chorus. Swung drums will test your sticking transitioning into fills.

Fan-favorites The Protomen return to Rock Band with “This City Made Us”. Released in 2015 as a lead-in to the upcoming Act III, the concept album trilogy finale, “This City Made Us” and joins “Light Up the Night” from the Rock Band 4 disc. A bombastic song about futility and giving up, get ready for over 6 minutes of hard rock, with some synthy bookends to ramp you up and back down. Galloping guitar and kick-fueled drums lead the charge for most of the song, but it’s more than willing to back off and give room to extravagant harmonies.

To get a better understanding of the songs’ pacing and structure, watch the latest DLC trailer (embedded below).

Developed and published by Harmonix, Rock Band 4 is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
