Marilyn Manson, Bring Me the Horizon, Mastodon + More Added to ‘Guitar Hero Live’
We know you've already been doing the happy dance because Guitar Hero is returning to game consoles this fall and we've already reported a ton of the artists (like Pantera, System of a Down, Green Day, etc.) that will be included in the latest installment of the franchise, Guitar Hero Live. Now, you have even more of an excuse to celebrate. Rolling Stone has revealed some additional artists who'll be included in the game.
10 new tunes have been added to the 24 already released, including Bring Me the Horizon’s “Shadow Moses,” Marilyn Manson’s “Disposable Teens” and Mastodon’s “High Road.” We’ve pasted the full list of songs that have been announced below, with the new tracks in bold.
The first Guitar Hero game came out 10 years ago and the head of the studio in charge of the newest edition, Jamie Jackson, tells Rolling Stone that fans will be happy with the new features and new songs available for the game. Players can expect an upgraded, more realistic instrument to play the game with, access to a 24-hour music video network that they can tune into and play along with, as well as a new first-person perspective feature to the game.
You also may have noticed the inclusion of acts like the Lumineers and Ed Sheeran to the list of songs below. Jackson explains why artists like that made the cut, "Guitar Hero – by its name alone – has always been associated with classic rock tracks. And we know fans really love that type of music. So we wanted to make sure those fans weren't disappointed, but it's been 10 years since the first Guitar Hero game came out. When you think of it like that, and think about how much the musical landscape has changed since then – that's where we've been able to explore some new types of musical style as well. Guitar music is broader than it's ever been – so we're reflecting that in the range of music on offer."
Guitar Hero Live is set to be released this fall and while only 34 songs for the game have been released, you can expect hundreds to be on the set list before the game comes out. Pre-order Guitar Hero Live here.
