Activision has confirmed that the four-piece rock band The Answer will feature in an upcoming version of Guitar Hero.

At an exclusive listening session at the recent Midem conference in France The Answer's track "Never Too Late" was selected ahead of 200 other songs entered in the event.

"Guitar Hero is all about the music," said Tim Riley, worldwide head of Music, Activision. "Which is why events like the Listening Session at MIDEM are so important to us. We were very impressed by the quality of the entries, but 'The Answer' stood out, and was a clear favourite of our panel. We're committed to searching for and partnering with great emerging bands like 'The Answer'. They are a great addition to the Guitar Hero family, and we look forward to working with them through what should be their breakthrough year."

The Answer's track "Never Too Late" will be included in a forthcoming Guitar Hero game, details of which Activision promises to announce soon.
