In-Game Model of Vocalist and Lead Guitarist, Billy Corgan, and “Today”
from Four Times-Platinum Album Siamese Dream To Rock On-Disc at Launch

Santa Monica, CA – September 2, 2008

The Smashing Pumpkins, one of rock's defining and most acclaimed bands who've sold over 30 million albums, is coming to Activision Publishing, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Guitar Hero® World Tour in a ground-breaking way as the band will debut their new single “G.L.O.W.” exclusively in the game. This marks the first time a band has recorded a new song exclusively for the franchise which will be released afterwards, giving Guitar Hero® fans exclusive access to Smashing Pumpkins music before anyone else. The new track, bundled with two other rocking Smashing Pumpkins hits, “1979” and “The Everlasting Gaze,” will be available post-launch of the game as a three-song downloaded content pack.

Additionally, on-disc with the release of Guitar Hero World Tour this fall, The Smashing Pumpkins’ singer, songwriter and lead guitarist Billy Corgan will appear as an in-game character and will bring with him “Today,” the band’s smash hit from their pivotal and four-times platinum 1993 album Siamese Dream. “Today” is one of the band’s many hits that have defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation. Players will be able to experience the unique alternative rocker’s likeness in-game as he sings and shreds on guitar, or play as the revered rock star throughout their vocal and axe careers.

When the house lights go down this fall, a new generation of guitarists, drummers and fearless frontmen will come together and rock with Guitar Hero World Tour. The latest installment in the #1 best-selling video game franchise of 2007, Guitar Hero World Tour transforms music gaming by expanding Guitar Hero’s signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience that combines the most advanced wireless controllers with new revolutionary online* and offline gameplay modes including Band Career and 8-player “Battle of the Bands,” which allows two full bands to compete head-to-head online for the first time ever. The game features a slick newly redesigned guitar controller, drum kit controller and a microphone, as well as an innovative Music Studio music creator that lets players compose, record, edit and share their own rock ‘n’ roll anthems. Music creators will also be able to share their recordings with their friends online through GHTunes(SM) where other gamers can download and play an endless supply of unique creations.

Guitar Hero World Tour is being developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The Wii™ version is being developed by Vicarious Visions. The PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system version is being developed by Budcat. The game is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB.

I love the Pumpkins, and this is a great idea!

But does this mean no Bullet With Butterfly Wings?

And Today is in RB2 .

EDIT: And 1979! YES!

Didn't Dragonforce just do that with Heroes Of Our Time?

Anyway it doesn't matter, I remember seeing pictures of Billy Corgan in a mo-cap suit and I guess it's a great addition to the game, very nice.

Nope, Dragonforce released Heroes of Our Time about a month before the GH3 DLC on their Myspace page. Plus their entire new album was leaked in the middle of July so they can't have exclusively done one song from it for a game :P

also, obligatory "FUCK YEAH SMASHING PUMPKINS"

I think it means the new song was made specifically for guitar hero, and willalso be released later, while Heroes Of Our Time was jus released for GH before the album

EDIT: DAMMIT, My first Ninja

Because its after September, which is the 9th month, and before November, which is the 11th month, therefore making October the 10th, not the 26th. Come back once you get an education son.
