UNEARTH Track Added to Guitar Hero World Tour

UnearthWhile it's true that the Guitar Hero video game has sparked enormous interest in learning how to play real guitars, one of its more under-the-radar benefits has been giving deserving bands (particularly their guitarists) a mass audience they might not get via mainstream radio and press outlets.

Case in point: Starting May 7, "Grave of Opportunity" from Massachusetts metallers Unearth will be available as a downloadable track on the Guitar Hero World Tour. The song is from the band's latest album, the critically acclaimed The March, which hit streets last October. The song is part of the Ferret Music/Metal Blade Track Pack, which also contains The Devil Wears Prada's "Dez Moines," and Chimaira's "On Broken Glass." 

"We're jazzed that 'Grave of Opportunity' will be available for download for Guitar Hero World Tour," says Unearth lead guitarist Buz McGrath. "It's a kick-ass tune that is wicked fun to play, so start practicing your super awesome Guitar Hero moves and get ready to feel the burn.

Currently, Unearth is gearing up for their upcoming North American tour with Testament and labelmates Lazarus A.D.
