Two songs from the Rock Band Network make their return.

The downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 this week includes a song by American progressive metal band Periphery and another by Canadian rock band Silverstein.

The following songs will be available from 20th August:

  • Periphery – “Butersnips”
  • Silverstein – “Burning Hearts”

Tracks can be purchased individually.

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

“Burning Hearts” is a high energy track that comes from the Ontario-based band Silverstein, whose name was inspired by famed children’s poet Shel Silverstein. Lead vocalist Shane Told delivers heartfelt lyrics accompanied by rhythmically challenging and locked drums and bass. The guitar and vocal range are equally demanding, and when it’s the guitar’s time to shine it’s explosive. “Burning Hearts” comes from their 5th studio album, Rescue, and it debuted on local Ontario radio station 89X Radio in February 2011. Craving more Silverstein? Check out their newest release from March 2020, A Beautiful Place to Drown.

Game faces on, because “Buttersnips” from Periphery’s 2010 self-titled debut album is strong straight out the gate. There’s barely any time to breathe, every instrument is highly engaged, which makes “Buttersnips” fun and challenging to play on every instrument. The intro flows perfectly into the first verse, and the arrangement allows everyone in the band to show off a bit.  If you’re on vocals remember to warm up, because these melodic lines are no joke. Washington D.C. based Periphery have released an impressive six studio albums and two EP’s, the entirety of which were self-produced.
