Fans of Rock Band 4 from Harmonix and Permaband, the CCP Games in-house band, will be over the moon to discover that to celebrate twenty-years of CCP they’ve both come together to release several of the bands classic tracks – for free – on Rock Band 4.
It was back in June 1997 that CCP was officially founded, and it’s thanks to this date, true fan favourites such as “Killing is Just a Means” and “Wrecking Machine” both from EVE Online, will be arriving on Rock Band 4 – completely free – for both the Xbox One and PS4 come the summer.
Permaband was founded in 2009 by CCP employees CCP ArnarV, CCP Guard, CCP Nova and CCP Arkanon, and their songs, videos, and live performances have become a staple of EVE Online fan events like Fanfest and EVE Vegas.
