New Road Crew program now open.
'Rock Band''s been away a while, and there's probably a lot of folks who'd love to know they're putting the band back together who don't realize the golden opportunity is about a month away. Which is why Harmonix is putting together what appears to be a badass online street team made up of the most hyped members of their community.
Dubbed the Road Crew, 500 intrepid individuals will be chosen on September 13th to go forth and start spreading the news that the rock is returning however they can: actively promoting the game, playing to their heart's content, joining in Battles of the Bands against other members, inviting friends and family to come share the love, and participating in Harmonix's semi-regular polls, which typically involve voting on DLC.
What do you get for all your hard work? For starters, accepted members get the full-on Band-In-A-Box package for 'Rock Band 4', for free, ahead of the game's October 6th release date. Then, by completing the gigs and objectives Harmonix will send out on the regular, the crew will get points which can be redeemed for 'Rock Band 4' DLC, gaming and music magazine subscriptions, various gift cards, and Harmonix-signed swag. Not bad for wailing on a plastic guitar all over again.
To apply, you'll need to send in a video to Harmonix, between 1 and 3 1/2 minutes, that shows you and your friends playing any version of Rock Band, explaining why you belong on the crew. Oh, and the words "impressive solo" need to be included. For reasons. Head over to their official site for more details, and to apply.
