Rockers and/or rollers who purchase Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will receive a CD of Soundgarden's new album, Telephantasm: A Retrospective. In other news, they still make CDs. In other, other news, Soundgarden has re-formed.
Soundgarden's album is not slated to hit stores until October 5, and Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock comes out on September 28, so for that week, the only people who hear the new tunes will be Guitar Hero owners. And their friends. And people who know how Bittorrent works. Or anyone who has the older Soundgarden albums: 12 of Telephantasm's 13 tracks are from older releases.
Along with the free music, Guitar Hero owners will also be able to play Soundgarden track, "Black Rain" with the game.
"There are a lot of different ways to get your music out (and) ... this clearly to me is one way to do that," Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell said. Indeed.
On the future of Soundgarden, Cornell told The USA Today: "I think our goal now is to do what we always wanted to do, which is to — at our own pace and in our own time — just do what we want when we want to do it," Cornell says. Indeed again.
Who's into the grunge and is excited?
