May DLC Artists, Double Kick Support, and Battleborn® Characters heading to Rock Band 4

Hey gang,

It’s May? It can’t be May. Is it seriously May?

It’s seriously May. Warm weather is imminent (folks in the North East of the US are rejoicing) and we’ve got our next lineup of DLC artists for the month! This month, you can expect to see tracks from the following artists:

  • Deep Blue Something
  • Gin Blossoms
  • Hozier
  • Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
  • Twisted Sister
  • Warrant

Weekly DLC starts up next Monday, May 9th, when we’ll announce our first new DLC for the month!

Tomorrow, the May Update for Rock Band 4 will be available! New playable characters from Battleborn®, Thorn and Miko, will be included with this free update. You’ll also have double kick pedal support for those drummers with fancy feet, and a whole bunch of bug fixes. Keep an eye out for the full list of patch notes coming soon!
