Active Knowledge Bringing Awesome Chiptune Instrumentals to Rock Band Network
Rock Band Network has seen some awesome chiptune releases. The first chiptune song to ever hit Rock Band, “Creatures ov Deception” by Rainbowdragoneyes, has seen great success since the moment it launched. Other artists have continued the chiptune invasion; RockGamer Studios released Ananmanaguchi’s “Airbrushed” as the first chiptune song to feature keyboard authoring, Fairwood Studios brought us the VVVVVV madness of Magnus “Souleye” Pålsson, and other chiptune artists have announced and/or released tracks for RBN. Rainbowdragoneyes is also bringing something new to take advantage of RBN2’s new features. We at Chart Toppers are proud to continue the chiptune invasion by bringing Active Knowledge to the Rock Band Network!

Active Knowledge mixes vintage video game sounds with synchronized glitchy, spastic visuals.
