Santana - No One To Depend On (LIVE)
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk
Tom Petty - Runnin Down a Dream
Johnny Cash - Ring of Fire
Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire

Here's the full release. We're off the pub before any other PR can send any news. Don't they know it's Friday?

"Guitar Hero continues to re-define the music and gaming experience this Fall with the release of Guitar Hero 5. Featuring the best variety and biggest rock stars of today combined with classic rock anthems, Guitar Hero 5 is the latest installment of the world's most popular music game. For the first time ever, players can customize the make-up of their band by rocking with any combination of instruments in-game: whether it be two guitars and two drums, or three guitars and a microphone, any combination is possible, allowing players to experience music their own way. Brand new, innovative, easy-to-use gameplay modes like Party Play and RockFest put fun, competition and control at center stage as fans tailor the Guitar Hero experience to match their personal style and interests. For extended hours of entertainment, downloadable content from Guitar Hero World Tour will be compatible with the game and will automatically be updated to include all of the upgrades and enhancements of Guitar Hero 5.

Guitar Hero 5 features the strongest, most varied set list to-date comprised of master tracks from 85 of the hottest bands of today and the biggest classic acts including; Kings of Leon, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Santana, Vampire Weekend, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, plus more than 30 artists from a variety of music genres that will be making their music-rhythm video game debut.

Among the first-time-ever features of Guitar Hero 5 are: Party Play, where players can jump in or drop out of gameplay seamlessly; RockFest, a comprehensive competitive experience available featuring five new head-to-head modes playable online or in your living room; and the ability to play the entire set-list from the first time the game is turned on.

Guitar Hero 5 refines the player experience, enhances the art style and redesigns core features such as GHMusic Studio, making it the most accessible, fun-to-play and authentic experience for seasoned music gamers as well as first-time players. New innovations such as Band Moments, where bands are rewarded for hitting special note streams together and song challenges where gamers are tasked to play through a song a specific way, add a new competitive layer of excitement and accomplishment to the music rhythm genre.

New Infomation from Kotaku

Guitar Hero 5 Brings New Look, New Features, And New Bands (Kotaku 18//5/09) wrote:


Determined to deliver more than just another band game sequel, Neversoft gives Guitar Hero 5 a brand new look, innovative new features, and introduces more than 25 new artists to the rhythm game genre.

More than 25 new artists means that we'll find at least 26 songs we've never played before included on the disc for Guitar Hero 5, which will feature master tracks from 85 of the "hottest bands of today and the biggest classic acts". Such distinctions are of course open to opinion, but Activision lists Kings of Leon, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Santana, Vampire Weekend, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan. All of those, plus you'll be able to import all of your Guitar Hero World Tour tracks, because if you couldn't there would be a riot.

Most of those names we already heard in Crecente's story on Friday, which also discussed the ability to play any combination of instruments, the drop-in play, and the new Rockfest multiplayer mode.

Other new features include a new Guitar Hero Music Studio revamped for accessibility; Band Moments, in which groups are rewarded for performing special note groups together; and song challenges, which task players to perform songs in certain ways.

As for the new art style, I can't say much for it with only two screenshots to go by. Judging from the screen at the top of this post, however, I'd say it's certainly a nice deviation from what we've already seen.

Activision has revealed further information on importing Avatars into the 360 version of Guitar Hero 5. Oh and there's a nice video to go with it too.

Here are the words:

"Taking full advantage of the latest technology available from Xbox Live, gamers can choose their band mates and mix and match their Xbox Avatars with Guitar Hero favourites like Judy Nails, Axel Steel and Lars Ümlaüt, or even rip it up alongside in-game talent.

"Xbox Avatars will also get a Guitar Hero makeover in the game's Create-A-Rocker mode, where players can further customize their creations with exclusive Guitar Hero clothing and accessories to ensure they look performance-ready."
