Guitar Hero fans can look forward music by Vampire Weekend, Creedence Clearwater Revival, as well as up-and-coming blues artists Tyler Bryant, Joe Bonamassa and Scott McKeon.

Metal fans are not forgotten this month as Guitar Hero adds three new artists to its ever-expanding line-up.

Guitar Hero fans will be able to experience blues music in its most raw and most pure form today with a three song track pack featuring three up-and-coming blues masters.  The New Blues Masters Track Pack will allow players to jam to Tyler Bryant’s Who I am, experience the American blues-rock styling’s of Joe Bonamassa with Lonesome Road Blues, or rock out to Broken Man by Scott McKeon.
