Animation is king this week in Rock Band, with releases from Jeff Williams ft. Casey Lee Williams and Stan Bush!
From Rooster Teeth’s hit animated web series RWBY comes “This Will Be The Day”, the Volume 1 OP created by Jeff Williams ft. Casey Lee Williams. The father/daughter duo have performed together throughout the RWBY series and other Rooster Teeth series such as Red vs. Blue. RWBY is a series taking place in the fantasy world of Remnant, where Ruby and her friends meet in a school that teaches you how to hunt shadowy beasts called Grimm. With Volume 6 premiering this fall, RWBY has solidified itself as one of Rooster Teeth’s biggest hits and definitely has one of the studio’s best soundtracks. In Rock Band 4, “This Will Be The Day” drums are gonna bring you a straight hard rock chart. It’s gonna stay heavy, there’s gonna be some tough fills that bring up the difficulty. Vocals in RWBY songs are looped into the lore of the universe, and there’s some nuanced harmonies to work on as you sing it. Guitar has a rapid riff throughout that tests your anchoring and brings in a hard solo that’ll surprise first-timers. Sounds pretty great, right? It’s free for Rivals owners, so you get a super fun track just for being you! Be sure to check out RWBY on roosterteeth.com and also ask Rooster Teeth what the deal is with the moon in it.
Stan Bush was a go-to for ‘80s soundtracks, and re-recorded “The Touch” for In This Life, his 2007 studio album. The original was featured in movies ranging in subject matter from vehicles with a penchant for walking all the way to highlights of living in the swingin' 1970s, so odds are good you know it from somewhere. A downright anthemic song, everyone will play a powerful role in the song. Guitar is full of chords, big drums hold it down alongside chugging bass, and vocals will take all your heart. There’s even a pair of quick guitar solos that’ll take some practice to nail. You’ve got the touch!
“This Will Be The Day” is free to all owners of the Rock Band Rivals expansion. “The Touch (2007)" can be purchased individually for $1.99.
* Please note that this week’s DLC tracks will be available for purchase on Thursday, August 9th.
