New Content for GH5 & Band Hero Coming in November

on October 30, 2009 12:05 PM

November is going to be a big month for the guys at Neversoft and Activision. Not only is there a lot of content becoming available for Guitar Hero, but Band Hero releases in the first week of the month, as well. Both libraries will grow substantially when Band Hero ships. It was announced today that you’ll be able to import songs between Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. Not all of them, mind you. Here’s the breakdown.

  • 69 tracks will be available to import from Guitar Hero 5 into Band Hero.
  • 61 tracks from Band Hero will be available to be imported into Guitar Hero 5.

This, of course, will allow a bit more customization in your in-game set lists.  There’s a full list of the songs you’ll be able to take off the Band Hero disc here, but no information was given on what you’ll be able to take off the GH5 disc.  Naturally, you’ll be charged for this importing – once for each disc, so it can add up – so make sure there’s enough songs you’d like to have in the other title to make it worth your while and your cash.

Along with the songs available via importing, there’s also some new tracks going up to purchase for GH5.  First off, we have a few Lenny Kravitz songs to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his 1989 debut album Let Love Rule.  On November 12 you’ll be able to purchase from this list individually or as an entire pack.

  • “Let Love Rule”
  • “Lady”
  • “Fly Away”

Additionally, to accompany the launch of their latest album, Sonic Boom, there will be some new KISS tracks made available, as well, including one of their new songs.  Here’s the list that will be available November 19.

  • “Modern Day Delilah”
  • “Lick It Up”
  • “I Was Made for Loving You”

All of the above will be available for all three systems – PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.

As if that wasn’t enough for Guitar Hero fans, there’s even more.  Neversoft wants to give you a free pack of six new tracks comprised of songs from bands t hat feature Neversoft employees.  The following songs will be available on November 24 and will only be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 at this point.

  • “Lemon Frosting” by Bunny Knutson
  • “RockNRola” by Nancy Fullforce
  • “From the Blue/Point of No Return/T.T.R.T.S.” by An Endless Sporadic
  • “Love Holds It Down” by Dom Liberati
  • “You Really Like Me” by Davidicus
  • “Guilty Pleasures” by Tony Solis

We know not everything that is released for GH5 becomes available on the Wii (I feel for you Wii owners, always getting the short end of the stick).  But, here are some tracks off Metallica’s Death Magnetic album that will be available for the Wii starting November 24.

  • “All Nightmare Long”
  • “That Was Just Your Life”
  • “The Day That Never Comes”
  • “The Judas Kiss”
  • “The End Of The Line”
  • “The Unforgiven III”
  • “Suicide & Redemption J.H.”
  • “Suicide & Redemption K.H.”

November sounds like a busy month for Guitar Hero fans, and there’s plenty of stuff coming down the pipes to rock out to.
