The update includes a song previously available from the Rock Band Network.

The downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 this week comprises two songs: one by American punk rock band Anti-Flag and the other by Canadian rock band Theory of a Deadman.

The following songs will be available from 3rd September:

  • Anti-Flag – “We Are the One”
  • Theory of a Deadman – “History of Violence”

Tracks can be purchased individually. “We Are the One” was previously available from the Rock Band Network.

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

Anti-Flag’s “We Are The One” is coming back to Rock Band! Anti-Flag is very well known for their activism and politically charged songs, they truly aren’t afraid to come out swinging and speak out on what’s right. “We Are The One” hails from their eighth studio album, The People or the Gun. Anti-Flag is still going strong, having released their newest album 20/20 Vision earlier this year. If you’re looking for a song to play that’s both challenging and empowering, give “We Are The One” a try starting this Thursday.

Theory of a Deadman is a Canadian band that packs a lot of punch. They were the first to sign to Chad Kroeger’s (of Nickelback fame) label 604 Records. Over the last 19 years, the band has released seven full-length studio albums, their most recent being Say Nothing from earlier this year. Theory of a Deadman is no stranger to important, heavy topics and songs on Say Nothing speak to issues of racism and domestic violence. “History of Violence” was written by the band’s vocalist, Tyler Connolly, and his ex-wife Christine and became their fourth single to top the Billboard Mainstream Rock. This track features powerful lyrics about the horrors of domestic violence, and the band has encouraged fans to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline if they or someone they know is being affected. Connolly’s punchy vocals pair well with the important message, as well as a bold rhythm section to tie it all together.
