Hot on the heels of their highly anticipated reunion, Grammy award-winning rockers Soundgarden and Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will come together this September in a  collaboration that marks the first time a new music album will be simultaneously released and bundled with a video game.

All one million North American Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock launch units will contain  Telephantasm, a 12-song career-spanning album, and will be exclusively available with the game for one week, prior to the album’s retail release.  Gamers alike  get full access to the band’s new album as downloadable content for  Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock when the album is released.

“We’re extremely excited to be collaborating with Soundgarden on this monumental moment in their music career,” said  Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for  Guitar Hero. “Guitar Hero continues to break new ground by being the preeminent interactive platform for debuting original content and a stage for the biggest acts in all genres of rock and roll to reach new audiences in an all-new way.”

In Addition, on  September 28th A&M/UMe will be releasing three expanded versions of  Telephantasm which will include a double-disc with 12 additional tracks, five of which are previously unreleased, and Soundgarden’s first-ever DVD, featuring 20 videos, 13 of which have never been released, a Deluxe 3-LP Vinyl Edition and an individually numbered Super Deluxe Collector’s Edition. The Super Deluxe Collector’s Edition will be available for a limited time and will include two CDs, the limited edition DVD, three heavy vinyl discs, a collectible poster, lithos, and much more. These three expanded versions will be available at all music retail outlets and on the band’s website.

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is being developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 and by Vicarious Visions for the Wii. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more information about  Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, please visit
