The first update for the month of April.

The downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 this week comprises two songs: one by singer-songwriters Machine Gun Kelly and blackbear and the other by metalcore band Norma Jean.

The following tracks will be available from 1st April:

  • Machine Gun Kelly – “my ex’s best friend (feat. blackbear)”
  • Norma Jean – “Leaderless and Self Enlisted”

Songs can be purchased individually from the Rock Band Music Store.

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

Machine Gun Kelly teamed up with blackbear to create “My Ex’s Best Friend”, which serves as the third single from Machine Gun Kelly’s chart-topping album, Tickets To My Downfall. The song charted high on the Billboard Hot 100 and exhibits a refreshing pop-punk sound heard throughout the album. Rock Band guitarists are going to have fun with this riffy, relatable anthem about breaking up and rebounding.

“Leaderless and Self Enlisted” appears as the first single and first track off Meridional, Norma Jean’s fifth studio album. Ahead of the album’s release, Norma Jean released “Leaderless and Self Enlisted” for free to folks on their mailing list as a sneak peek. Guitarists and drummers are in for a real challenge with this one.

Rock Band 4 is developed and published by Harmonix for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
