DLC Week of 8/31: Catfish And The Bottlemen and Ted Nugent!
At Harmonix we believe that variety is the spice of life, so this week we’re offering up some extra spicy DLC. We’re featuring tracks from hot UK rockers Catfish And The Bottlemen and legendary guitar icon Ted Nugent, with songs from both acts joining the platform.
Featured in Rock Band VR, “Postpone” is a strong track from Catfish And The Bottlemen’s latest album The Ride. Topping the UK Albums chart and reaching 28 on the Billboard 200, The Ride surpassed their debut album’s performances on both sides of the ocean. We chose “Postpone” off the album because it sounded great in Rock Band VR and is tons of fun. It’s a well-rounded song with vocals pulling a bit ahead in terms of challenge. Pounding drums and pulsing bass hold up a chordy guitar line that travels around during the verses. When the song transitions to the chorus, the instruments begin a gallop, before opening up for the second half of the chorus.
The lead single and first track on Ted Nugent’s debut solo album, “Stranglehold” is every inch the perfect introduction to his career, a veritable guitar gauntlet end-to-end. Within 8 minutes, the song has three guitar solos, with one of them being several minutes long, often considered one of the best guitar solos of all time. But there’s no worries about the other instruments being left out, as bass even has its own solo featured. Drums ride the hi-hat through the whole song, but there’s scattered tough drum fills everywhere. The vocals largely aren’t sang by Ted Nugent, instead being predominantly Derek St. Holmes. That being said, Ted Nugent still sings a verse in the track.
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each. The Rock Band Rivals Season 2 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $13.49.
