Harmonix adds songs from Five Finger Death Punch, Motorhead, Royal Blood to Rock Band 4 Music Store

More heavy metal is coming to the Rock Band 4 Music Store. Harmonix has announced that new songs from Five Finger Death Punch (“Got Your Six”), Motorhead (“Thunder & Lightning”), and Royal Blood (“Figure It Out”) are now available to download for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The developer is also offering a quick primer, and the preview video embedded above, for fans who might be unfamiliar with these three bands:

Heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch joins the Rock Band Music Library with the title track from their latest album Got Your Six. The legendary Motorhead returns to Rock Band DLC this week with “Thunder & Lightning.” We’re honored to add a track from the last album recorded by the band with band founder and metal legend Lemmy Kilmister. Finally, British rockers Royal Blood come to Rock Band for the first time with “Figure It Out” from their self-titled debut album.

All three songs are now available to download from the Rock Band 4 Music Store for $1.99 apiece.

“Get Lucky” today with a trio of new songs on the Rock Band 4 Music Store

I won’t be able to hear Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” ever again without first thinking of Stephen Colbert and his celebrity-packed dance party set to the song. And can you blame me? When you watch Jeff Bridges boogie down the stairs, or Henry Kissinger get testy in his office, or Bryan Cranston put on a disco roller skating showcase, it tends to stick with you. So that’s why I’m thrilled that Harmonix has added “Get Lucky” to the Rock Band 4 Music Store this week… though sadly it won’t include any celebrity cameos.

Two additional songs are available to download today: Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat Song” and Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” All three tracks can be purchased for $1.99 apiece.

Harmonix also revealed ten artists who will contribute songs to the Rock Band 4 Music Store in February including Bruno Mars, Five Finger Death Punch, Generation X, J. Geils Band, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Masaya Matsuura, Motorhead, Orleans, Royal Blood, and Zac Brown Band.

Harmonix adds more grunge to Rock Band 4 Music Store with new songs from Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots

Head back to the 90s with a trio of grunge classics… now available to download through the Rock Band 4 Music Store for $1.99 apiece.

Temple of the Dog, the grunge supergroup featuring members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, kick things off with their 1991 anthem, “Hunger Strike.” Speaking of Soundgarden, Harmonix also tapped Chris Cornell’s former band for a new track this week with “My Wave” from 1994’s Superunknown. Finally this week, Scott Weiland and the rest of Stone Temple Pilots will rock out to “Wicked Garden,” which still found success on the radio dial even though it was never officially released as a single.

A new trailer previewing all three songs has been embedded above.

Harmonix adds three “intense” metal tunes to Rock Band 4 Music Store in today’s DLC Update; Brutal Mode added in a free update

Harmonix is getting loud in this week’s Rock Band 4 DLC Update as they’ve added new music from a trio of progressive metal bands to the Music Store. Priced at $1.99 apiece, Between the Buried and Me’s “The Coma Machine,” Opeth’s “Heir Apparent,” and Symphony X’s “Nevermore” can be downloaded now.

The hits keep on coming as the developer also added a brand new gameplay mode to Rock Band 4 today in a special free update. Brutal Mode will “put even the most hardcore players’ skills to the test” as it modifies the note highway to react to how well you’re playing. As your playing improves, Brutal Mode will push the target line further up the note highway until most of it is hidden. Players who complete this ridiculous challenge, which you can see in the trailer embedded above, will earn the coveted Crimson Star.

A preview trailer for this week’s new tracks can be found after the break. (more…)
