Nickelback’s cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” features Dave Martone.
The downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 this week consists of two songs: one by American heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch and the other by Canadian rock band Nickelback.
The following songs will be available from 29th October:
- Five Finger Death Punch – “A Little Bit Off”
- Nickelback – “The Devil Went Down to Georgia (feat. Dave Martone)”
“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” is a cover of a song by the Charlie Daniels Band and features Canadian guitarist Dave Martone. All tracks can be purchased individually.
The descriptions below are taken from this week’s release notes:
Five Finger Death Punch’s “A Little Bit Off” is the second single from their eighth, and most recent, studio album F8. The last time we saw Five Finger Death Punch, we brought “Inside Out” into the mix right as F8 released. This time, we’re slowing it down while the bass still packs a punch. “A Little Bit Off” topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts in June of this year as they released a supporting music video. The minimalist video highlights how the pandemic threw a wrench into the production process which called for some creative work arounds. Rock Band players will enjoy the unique acoustic guitar riffs, emotional lyrics about fighting anxieties, and the iconic heavy Five Finger Death Punch bass lines.
Nickelback is a band that does not need introductions. Recently, the band released a cover of the Charlie Daniels Band’s “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” featuring Canadian guitarist Dave Martone. This is Nickelback’s first music released since their most recent album from 2017, Feed the Machine. The band is planning to record and release an upcoming tenth studio album, to sit alongside their extensive discography of commercially successful hits. Nickelback ft. Dave Martone’s cover of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” replaces the fiddle with an absolutely soaring guitar, and Rock Band diehards are going to love trying to master the intricacies involved. This song is much heavier than you may initially expect, and will prove to be a big challenge for guitarists especially.
