Rock out this week with new DLC from Coheed and Cambria and Greta Van Fleet!
Coheed and Cambria is continuing the story of the Amory Wars with their upcoming album, Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. It will be the band’s ninth album and takes place the furthest along the Amory Wars timeline. The band’s last six albums have hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, and, based on the currently released songs from Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, we’re sure this album is going to be a hit as well. This week, expect to see the title track of the album, “Unheavenly Creatures”, in Rock Band Music Stores near you. Singing to Claudio Sanchez’s vocals has always been a challenge in Rock Band, and it’s the same in “Unheavenly Creatures”, with quite a range to be found between the chorus and verses. Drums and guitar keep the energy, with drums pounding along to vocals in the chorus. Be sure to check out this latest Amory Wars entry later this week!
Before then, it’s a perfect day to head to http://www.coheedandcambria.com/ With a new album out next week, you can use the time to pick up the deluxe edition, which nets you early tour ticket access and a bunch of art and story around this chapter of the Amory Wars.
Greta Van Fleet made a splash last year as they began topping charts with a throwback rock sound. With their debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army soon to be released, Rock Band is proud to feature current single “When The Curtain Falls” in the Rock Band store this week. Fun fact: “When The Curtain Falls” is also the first song that Greta Van Fleet played on television. “When The Curtain Falls” jumps from the word go, with a sweet guitar riff and some intricate drumming immediately following a count-in. It’ll take some skill to match the highs of Josh Kiszka’s voice, but it feels good to hit. Unsurprisingly, you can expect to pull out a gnarly guitar solo near the end of the song, so don’t get tripped up.
Heading to http://www.gretavanfleet.com/ now can get you a head start on the rest of the year. it’s a great place for impending news about Anthem of the Peaceful Army and, in the meantime, you can stream or buy their prior releases, including “When The Curtain Falls”. Check out the tour page to see when they’ll be stopping by and buy a shirt to wear when you see them (it’s NOT a faux pas). Before you know it, their album will be out and you can loop it to your heart’s content.
For the first two weeks of release, songs can be purchased individually for $1.49. Following that two week period, songs can be purchased individually for $1.99. The Rock Band Rivals Season 8 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $16.49.
