Day 8’s song is from drummerockband!
Here’s what drummerockband has to say:
Hey guys, I’m the one they call drummerockband, but you may also call me Brendan. The track I have brought you today is from my favorite band Tegan and Sara (I still haven’t seen them live. COME NEAR MY TOWN AT LEAST YOU QUIN SISTERS!). Their new album “Heartthrob” was released in January of this (soon to be last) year. After listening to it multiple times, I fell in love with it. It is my favorite album of 2013. So that’s why I’ve brought their radio hit “Closer”. Now that I got that out of the way, I’d like you to get to know me a bit.
I started to play rhythm games when the first Guitar Hero game came out. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I’ve loved rhythm games ever since. When I found out about RBN, my first thought was “I NEED XNA RIGHT NOW SO I CAN PLAY SONGS I CHARTED!” My first ever chart “Barbie Girl” by Aqua was the result (you can find it somewhere on the forums, if you’d like). I look back on it now and then I look at this track released today, and this shows how far along I’ve gotten with my charting.
The genres I most enjoy are Indie Rock, New Wave (Synthpop), Classic Rock, and some Jazz (think Steely Dan, Brian Setzer, or Norah Jones) AND DON’T FORGET WEIRD AL YANKOVIC! (I was one of the masterminds behind that ginormous pack ). I also tend to enjoy female singers over male singers. It’s just something about the sound that I really enjoy. Oh, and I love Canadian artists (except the Biebs and Nickelback, sorry fans of these artists ) because I’m Canadian too!
When I author songs, I usually go for the drums or vocals first (after the tempo map of course!). I feel I’m better at charting them over guitar and bass. I usually play Rock Band by myself, except for every Christmas Eve when I have the family over and we play all night! But I still enjoy playing them by myself.
One more thing you should know. I’m a gigantic gamer and am very sarcastic, so please don’t take things seriously from me if I seem to have a silly comment every once in a while! See you in 2014 when I attempt to release more quality Rock Band songs! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
(Remember, this is just a reveal; all of the songs will be released together on December 25. Check back tomorrow for another awesome song!)
