GODSMACK‘s latest dates, with Halestorm supporting, kicked off September 20 in Green Bay, WI and wrap October 18 in Tulsa, OK. The band–Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]–have spent more than a year on the road, both in North America and throughout Europe in support of their WHEN LEGENDS RISE album (BMG).
WHEN LEGENDS RISE marks the band’s seventh studio album and their first in four years. The critically acclaimed 11-song collection entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart in the top ten (#8), with four #1 placements on other charts: Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Music Albums, Top Independent Albums and Top Alternative Albums. WHEN LEGENDS RISE is available on CD, LP and Digital; purchase or stream it here. The album finds the guys doubling down on their combination of tightly wound riffs, rhythmic fury, naked emotions and pushed-to-the-edge vocals, all fired up with melodic precision and tight songcraft.
GODSMACK have also achieved a career first by scoring three #1 singles from the same album. “Under Your Scars,” the third single from the band’s WHEN LEGENDS RISE album, has ascended to #1 on the Active Rock Chart. This marks the group’s third #1 rock hit from their current album. “Under Your Scars” follows the album’s two previous tracks that were #1 active rock hits: “When Legends Rise” and “Bulletproof,” the latter of which was recently certified Gold in the U.S. and was also the most-played song at rock radio in 2018.
Here’s what a few critics are saying about GODSMACK‘s live show:
“Between the tight sound, high energy and entertaining stage show, it’s no secret why Godsmack have been one of the most dominating and prominent bands throughout the last two decades..”
– Twin Cities Media, April 23, 2019
“It’s an all out assault on the senses when [Godsmack] start getting into their second set. Broad and bold, this band makes its mark and if all you can remember after 3 days is Godsmack, then success fostered its way to your memory bank and you leave wanting more.”
-Charlotte Alexander, Go Venue Magazine (Welcome to Rockville), 5/9/18
