Welcome to Season 22: Lunar New Year

Let’s Go Back in Time.

We hope you enjoyed Season 21’s fantastical quest through Rockbandlandia – it was a season that we had a lot of fun designing. For Season 22 we’re excited to start a new journey with you.

The Lunar New Year

For season 22 we’ll be exploring the animals and years of the Chinese Zodiac. For more than 2000 years, the Chinese Zodiac has paired important animals with years in a 12-year cycle. Each week we’ll explore a different animal or two and the music released during that animal’s year. For example, Year of the Ox includes 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973 and 1961 so the setlist during that week will feature all of the songs in the catalog released in those years. The spotlight tracks for that week will also either include the animal or match with the traits of the particular Zodiac.

Year of the Ox Set

We hope you got the track skins you were aiming for in Season 21. Coming up we’ve got some awesome new Tops for you to unlock. These are the first in our Year of the Ox set.

We’ve got some fantastic DLC coming up tomorrow and we’ll be announcing the first Zodiac animal(s) featured for Week One.

Also, if you’re interested in getting a lot of the DLC for this coming season, you can pick up the Season 22 Season Pass, save big and have the entire season’s worth of DLC at your fingertips as soon as it releases. You can grab it starting this Thursday and get straight to rocking. 

Thank you to every single one of our players whether you’re new to Rock Band or have been with us from the beginning. Stay cool and safe this summer.
