DLC Week of 8/27: Sub Urban and The Weeknd!

Season 18 is here and we’re celebrating like movie stars.

This week, let’s jam out to Sub Urban and The Weeknd.

Sub Urban, or Daniel Virgil Maisonneuve, is a New Jersey singer, producer and songwriter. “Cradles” skyrocketed Maisonneuve to success in January 2019 by going viral on TikTok well before it hit radio stations. As of now, “Cradles” has over 200 million streams on Spotify. The song is about not wanting to grow up and the beat behind it, while complex and eerie, has some child-like charm to it. If you’re craving something truly unique with a relatable storyline, pick up that microphone and sing along to “Cradles” with Sub Urban.

Sub Urban also released his debut studio album, Thrill Seeker, in March 2020. Find out where to listen to Thrill Seeker, pick up some merch, and find links to Sub Urban’s social media channels on his website –

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” will be a thrilling new addition to your Song Library this week. “Blinding Lights” is the second single off of the Canadian singer’s fourth and most recent studio album, After Hours. The song peaked at number 1 in over 30 countries and served as The Weeknd’s fifth #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. This synthy, upbeat track has intense retro vibes that will be impossible not to dance around to. The Weeknd sings of his relationship with model Bella Hadid, wishing to rekindle and work on the love they once shared. Serenade someone special to you, or pick up your guitar or drum sticks and feel the serotonin rush through your body while playing “Blinding Lights” in Rock Band.

Sub Urban’s “Cradles” will be available for $1.49 for the first two weeks, and then $1.99 going forward. The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” will be available for $1.99 on the Rock Band Music Store.

Don’t forget about the brand-new Season Pass. It includes *all* of the new DLC that will be released over the course of Season 18, regardless of whether it’s in the spotlight or not.  It’s a big bundle with a big savings. The Season 18 Season Pass is available for purchase now.
