The expanded setlist features a number of artists returning from previous games in the Rock Band series, including Aerosmith with “Toys in the Attic,” The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love,” Dream Theater’s “Metropolis, Pt. 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper,” Foo Fighters with “The Feast and the Famine,” Judas Priest’s “Halls of Valhalla,” Live’s “All Over You,” Ozzy Osbourne’s “Miracle Man,” and Paramore’s “Still Into You.”

Musical acts making their series debut in Rock Band 4 include The Outfield with their hit single “Your Love,” St. Vincent with “Birth in Reverse,” and Van Morrison with his 1967 track “Brown Eyed Girl.”

Harmonix announced the return of its peripheral-driven Rock Band series earlier this year, ending the franchise’s years-long hiatus. The series will make its debut for current-generation consoles with support for legacy instrument controllers, though Rock Band 3‘s keyboard peripheral won’t return for an encore.

Previously revealed tracks for Rock Band 4 include “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold, “Lazaretto” from Jack White, Spin Doctors’ “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” “My God Is the Sun” from Queens of the Stone Age, The Who’s “The Seeker,” The Killers’ “Somebody Told Me,” Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds,” Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” “Violent Shiver” from Benjamin Booker, “The Warrior” by Scandal, and Fleetwood Mac’s “You Make Loving Fun.” The sequel will additionally import DLC songs users purchased within previous Rock Band series games for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Rock Band 4 will launch for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 6 as both a standalone release and in a bundle including microphone, guitar, and drumkit peripherals.
