"On Broken Glass", one of the songs from CHIMAIRA's new album, "The Infection", will be available as a downloadable track for Guitar Hero World Tour. The tune will be released on May 7 as part of the Ferret Music/Metal Blade Track Pack, which also contains THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA's "Dez Moines" and UNEARTH's "Grave of Opportunity".
"We're very excited to be a part of Guitar Hero, because we're all huge fans of the game," states vocalist Mark Hunter. "We've been playing since it came out, and we finally have the opportunity to have one of our songs in the game. It's a dream come true. Fans are gonna have a really hard time with this track on expert, that's for sure!"
As previously reported, "The Infection", sold 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 30 on The Billboard 200 chart.
CHIMAIRA's previous album, "Resurrection", opened with 16,000 copies back in March 2007 to land at No. 42.
Comments Mark Hunter: "We can't thank our fans enough for supporting this album and spreading the word. In this day and age, when sales are down, and the economy is shit, the fact that we sold what we did is a miracle. We owe it to our fans for keeping us a relevant, top-tier band in the metal genre. Our fans really helped promote this album and it's just as much of a celebration for them as it is for us."
"The Infection" was released in North America on April 21 via Ferret Music and will be issued in Europe on April 24 through Nuclear Blast. The CD was mastered at Sterling Sound in New York City with Ted Jensen and Chris "Zeuss" Harris (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, TERROR, THE ACACIA STRAIN).
"Destroy And Dominate", the new video from CHIMAIRA, will make its online debut on Tuesday, May 5. The clip was filmed in February in the band's hometown, with the group's longtime videographer Todd Bell at the helm.
