GODSMACK kick off the new year with a new video, two iHeart Radio Award nominations and tour dates which will keep the multi-platinum hard rock titans on the road through mid-May.
On the video front, the band have created a high-energy clip for the album’s title track, “When Legends Rise” which has been the #1 song at Rock Radio for four straight weeks. The video, which is being released in advance of this weekend’s NFL Playoffs, mixes an electrifying live performance of the Boston quartet–Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]–interspersed with thrilling highlights of pivotal moments in recent football history, concluding with a shot of the New England Patriots Super Bowl trophy. Watch the clip here.
“When Legends Rise” is the second #1 from the album. It follows last year’s #1 “Bulletproof,” which was just nominated for “Rock Song of the Year” for the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards and was also the most-played song at rock radio in 2018. The band was also nominated for a second award for “Rock Artist of the Year.”
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.
Next month, GODSMACK return to the road, first with 20 shows in Europe to be followed by a North American headlining tour with Volbeat. The European swing gets underway February 27 in London with Like A Storm confirmed as direct support for the six-week European trek. GODSMACK will then return to the U.S. where they’ll headline a run of shows with special guests VOLBEAT, along with some co-headlining shows with them in Canada. Tickets for all the shows are on sale now.

About GODSMACK:
Godsmack stand strong as 21st century hard rock titans. With an unbreakable spirit and diehard work ethic evocative of their hometown, the Boston quartet fought hard to secure a place in music history since first smashing their way on to the scene in 1998. To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles at mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” “Cryin’ Like A Bitch,” and “I Stand Alone.” Moreover, they’ve enjoyed 20 Top 10 hits at the format-the most of any act since February 1999-as well as four Grammy nominations, and were winners of The Billboard Music Awards Rock Artist’s of the Year in 2001. Selling over 20 million records worldwide, the band has also unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200-namely Faceless [2003], IV [2006], and The Oracle [2010]. This places them in league with Van Halen, U2, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, and Linkin Park who have also enjoyed the same streak. Moreover, the accomplishment on the road remains staggering with headlining sets everywhere from Mayhem and UPROAR to Rock on the Range. Godsmack released the successful and acclaimed 1,000 HP in 2014, and their domination continues with the release of When Legends Rise, their seventh full-length album in 2018. They still stand alone.
