Hi everyone! I'm currently on a hiatus from my university studies, so I've got more time for customs again!  :)
 

NEW - 29th January

Hope of the States - 66 Sleepers to Summer

 

I'm in the process of charting this whole album, but thought I'd share what I've done so far. Hope of the States are a (sadly) defunct band from the UK, who released two albums. These are the first three tracks from their debut, which received a lot of attention on release for good and bad reasons. Good, because it was their first release after an intense bidding war from a range of major labels, and bad because founder-member Jimmi Lawrence tragically committed suicide just as the album was being finished.

 

The album gained a lot of critical acclaim, including a 9/10 rating from the NME, and generated three top-30 singles, but sales were lower than hoped. The band released a second album, Left, in 2006, but disbanded shortly afterwards.

 

The Lost Riots remains one of my favourite albums of all time, if not THE favourite. The band is somewhere between Godspeed-style post-rock and feel-good indie. A lot of their songs have a certain sombreness (although unrelated to Jimmi's death, as all the first album's lyrics were completed before he died) but nearly all have an element of hope. The band's message could best be summed up by the coda of Enemies/Friends: "Come on people, keep your friends close, your enemies won't matter in the end".

 

I'll be adding more from this album, and others from their discography, in due course, but I really hope you enjoy these for now.

First, welcome!!

excited to try the coldplay song.

Love the death cab choices, and think trail of dead is a great add for RB. Thought they'd be a good band to play for a while now.Looking forward to that as well!

I am so glad you are doing Death Cab! I really can't believe RB only got one song by them.

As far as I know, this is The Drums' debut in Rock Band, with probably their most famous song. It's pretty repetitive (sorry especially to bassists), but still good fun to play. I have charted the whistling onto Keys.

I will add Just A Day to the to-do list! :)

Super excited for Songs from Transatlanticism. I hope you will consider "The Sound of Settling."

And I know I said it before, but I can't wait for Mistakes & Regrets. I wonder if that will be the longest band name in the game? :)

Here it is - the long overdue (IMHO) Rock Band debut of Feeder! If you don't recognise the title, check out the video, and it may well sound familiar. I've really enjoyed making this custom and was very eager to share it so it hasn't been rigorously play-tested yet - if any issues come up, please let me know :)
