Guitar Hero 4 Nets Smashing Pumpkins, Will Debut New Track 'G.L.O.W.'

A new Smashing Pumpkins single will debut as downloadable content for Guitar Hero World Tour, publisher Activision has announced.

The track, "G.L.O.W." will be accompanied by older tunes "1979" and "The Everlasting Gaze" in the downloadable pack, which is vaguely slated for a "post-launch" release.

The Smashing Pumpkins will also appear on the game disc with "Today," and singer-songwriter Billy Corgan will be featured as a playable character.

The known on-disc tracks for Guitar Hero World Tour are listed below:

Meanwhile, the following artists and tracks are believed to be included due to leaks or Activision-issued media:

Though the sequel, often referred to as Guitar Hero 4, isn't due out until this fall, Activision has already detailed some of its downloadable content, including more tracks from Jimi Hendrix, R.E.M., Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne.

Bringing vocals and drums to the traditionally guitar-only franchise, Guitar Hero World Tour is being developed by Neversoft for the PS3 and Xbox 360, with Vicarious Visions handling the Wii version and Budcat on the PS2 edition.
