For those of you not particularly excited by an all heavy metal music game, we have The Killers, who will be debuting songs off of their new album Day & Age in Guitar Hero World Tour day and date with the album's release on November 25th. What genre would you consider The Killers anyway? I'd say alternative, but I am pretty sure there was no alternative throughout all of last year to hearing "Mr. Brightsides" and "When You Were Young" every time you turned around. Well at least we're getting something new from them. The three song track pack includes two titles off the new album, "Human" and "Losing Touch", along with "Mr. Brightsides", dammit.
The pack will run you 440 points via Xbox Live or $US5.49 on the PlayStation 3. All three songs will also be available as solo downloads for 160 MS Points, $US1.99 PS3, and on the Nintendo Wii for 200 points a pop. Don't complain to me about the cost. It's just the price I pay. Destiny is calling me, so open up your eager eyes to check out the press release after the jump.
