Probably selling better than classic media, Guitar Hero will see rockers Rise Against releasing some songs created exclusively for Activision’s title, with the debut of “Death Blossoms” as DLC for Guitar Hero World Tour.
The Guitar Hero alums, with “Prayer of the Refuge” and “Re-Education (Through Labor)” appearing in previous versions of Guitar Hero, complete the Rise Against Track Pack with “Audience of One,” the hit single off the band’s new album Appeal to Reason and “Ready to Fall,” from their 2006 album The Sufferer & The Witness.
“Guitar Hero continues to be a platform for artists to deliver new music while gaining invaluable exposure,” says Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Activision Blizzard. “We are thrilled that Rise Against was willing to compose and record ‘Death Blossoms’ exclusively for our audience offering fans an opportunity to download music heard nowhere else.”
The Rise Against Track Pack will be available March 12th on Xbox 360 for 440 Microsoft Points and on the PlayStationStore for 5.49 euros / £3.99. “Death Blossoms,” “Audience of One” and “Ready to Fall” will be released individually as downloadable singles for 160 MS Points, PS3 system for 1.99 euros / £1.59 and Wii for 200 Wii Points each.
