Song Speculation: Alabama Shakes close off June Rocksmith DLC

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Today’s clue was posted and solved pretty fast and we have a brand new artist headed to Rocksmith! 

Let’s check out RollingStone222’s clue!

Good eye!

What about the numbers?

What song?

I’m thinking you’re right…

Well done, and a FOUR pack? Awesome!

@Alabama_Shakes is a relatively new woman-led band (2009) that plays Blues rock, Southern rock, and soul. They have only appeared once before in music games via Rock Band 4

You may have also heard them from one of our more controversial articles…

What other songs do we expect to see in this four pack? Here’s some safe bets…

What follows is speculation

Being on an Oscar nominated movie soundtrack doesn’t hurt

Based on the Rock Band 4 licensing

Really hoping for this one!

Are you excited for this brand new addition to Rocksmith? Or is this not your cuppa tea… Let us know!

Never heard of them, but WOW. Her voice gives me goose bumps. Buying the pack for sure, no matter what’s in it. Also buying all of their albums right now…

Gimme All Your Love has the tempo change and isn’t too fast so I’m hoping for it.

Here go my 3 cents into the wishing well:

Future People (oh god please) the bass and guitars in this one is powefull!
Gimme All your Love
Hold On
Rise To The Sun (it’s a single so…)

I forgot who all is in that club. I know Amy, Janis, Jimi, Kurt--and Pac missed it by a year.

“Blues rock, Southern rock, and soul.” Meh. Doesn’t sound interesting to me. I guess I’ll listen to Hold On though.

I went back an re-read that post as well. Guess we can now cross Alabama Shakes and Jefferson Airplane off that list.

Hope to see the Dixie Chicks and Lauryn Hill make it some day.

I miss when Guitar World/Guitar One would do a summer Blues issue. To counter that, I’ve noticed a pleasant trend in the DLC released around this time over the past few years. Somewhere in the May-July time frame we tend to get some nice soulful music. (Bill Withers, Blues Pack, James Brown, Hall n Oates, etc).

I first heard Alabama Shakes while accidentally flipping past Austin City Limits. I saw this lady with a white Gibson SG and thought, Whoa, is she going to sing some Sister Rosetta Tharpe? Was pleasantly surprised by what came out. Heard them again at the Grammy Awards and then went to get Sound & Color (A very nice CD).

As this year has shown, Ubisoft is really adding some interesting flavors to the gumbo.

….so now uh… since we’re on the subject of Alabama, can we get some Alabama, or (again) Brad Paisley.

I haven’t listened to these guys before, but I think they may become a new favorite.
