This is interesting as it is the first time a major act has released a single through a computer game. The Smashing Pumpkins have sold over 30 million albums across the band’s career. The song will be made available in other formats following its appearance within Guitar Hero.
The new track will be bundled with two other rocking Smashing Pumpkins hits, “1979” and “The Everlasting Gaze,”.
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 1993 album Siamese Dream.
