Gears of War 4 Advert Music – Soundtrack and singer details for the powerful GOW 4 Tomorrow YouTube and TV trailer.
Song Title: The Sound Of Silence.
Again beginning with the lyrics ‘Hello darkness my old friend’, this new version is performed by the American heavy metal band Disturbed and features a powerful vocal performance from lead singer David Draiman.
Whether you choose to download the track or just watch the official music video at the bottom of this page, this cover really needs to be heard in its entirety to be fully appreciated.
Released as a single in December, 2015, Disturbed’s cover of The Sound Of Silence reached number 1 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock countdown, but surprisingly only number 44 on the UK singles chart. Perhaps Microsoft’s use of the track in this new Gears of War 4 commercial can help give it the extra exposure it deserves.
Even though the third-person shooter game isn’t scheduled to be released until the 11th of October, the above trailer was posted to YouTube on the 10th of April and has already been viewed more than 11 million times.
