We’re already stoked about the fact that Seattle stars Soundgarden are finally releasing a career-spanning collection of their biggest hits and unreleased gems – but the fact that Telephantasm will be available across three slabs of heavyweight vinyl is too exciting for words.
Next month will see the recently reformed grunge legends unleash their debut Best Of collection in conjunction with the latest Guitar Hero edition.
And if you’re not into your gaming Telephantasm will be released on September 27 as a single CD, double CD, vinyl and Super Deluxe Collector’s edition!!
“We are thrilled about the exclusive and trailblazing partnership between Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock and Soundgarden,” said David Haddad, Chief Operating Officer of Guitar Hero.
“The fact that this seminal band chose Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock as the way to reintroduce themselves speaks volumes about Guitar Hero’s ability to deliver music, in an exciting, interactive way, to millions of music fans and gamers.
“The extensive collaboration – bundling Telephantasm with Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, including the unreleased “Black Rain” as an exclusive in the game and releasing the entire album as downloadable content – demonstrates Soundgarden’s and Guitar Hero’s commitment to delivering a great experience for its fans.”
On September 27th / 28th A&M/Universal Music Group 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.
Plus you can get your hands on that Deluxe Three-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.
