It is, in case you’re not down in the vicinity of where all the fashionable kids hang out, the cool thing. Release your record via Rock Band and/or Guitar Hero, so that instead of being seen as some crusty old group reforming once more to pay off a few debts, you are, in fact, bleeding-edge innovators who have STILL GOT IT.
Next to try it is The Smashing Pumpkins, who will be releasing two old songs a few people have heard of – 1979 and The Everlasting Gaze – alongside one ALL NEW SONG called G.L.O.W..
And they’re doing it via Guitar Hero World Tour, AND the song has been recorded specifically for the game. Although, ruining the idea somewhat, they have said it will be released separately as a proper single after it appears in GH. This latest rehashing of Guitar Hero will appear in the Autumn. The Pumpkins downloadable content pack will pop up shortly after that.
