|Sorry there hasn't been an announcement the last few weeks, I've just been way too busy. All the songs were added, I just wasn't able to build the announcements for each one.
|Our first new song this week, S.O.S., is courtesy of Canadian rockers The Glorious Sons. The quintet formed in 2011 and released their first EP in 2013. Their debut album The Union was a hit on the Canadian Rock charts, spawning a total of five Top 10 singles. Young Beauties and Fools followed in late 2017 and recently won the band a Juno Award for Rock Album of the Year. The second single from Young Beauties and Fools, S.O.S. broke the band on U.S. radio and, after six months on the charts, the song hit #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart (a position it held for 4 weeks!). The infectious energy of S.O.S. is translated into the gameplay, featuring a fun guitar solo midway through, 3-part vocal harmonies, and a catchy chorus.

Rival Sons current single Do Your Worst is our second new addition to the Rock Band 4 library. Currently celebrating their 10th anniversary together, Rival Sons formed in sunny Long Beach, California in 2009 and independently released their debut album the same year. Feral Roots, the bands sixth album, was released in January and was preceded by the single Do Your Worst. Do Your Worst struck a chord with listeners as it climbed to #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart last month. Regarding the song, singer Jay Buchanan stated, The song is a whiskey nightmare crawling with copperhead snakes to me. This one offers excitement for all instruments. Its soulful rock with a hard edge, ripping guitars, and challenging 2-part vocals.
