Godsmack promise to deliver a high-impact rock show to their fans across the U.S. "Our fans should expect the biggest Godsmack spectacle yet, explains singer Sully Erna. This tour will be a virtual visual and aural circus. Expect the unexpected when we hit your town." Rob Zombie will set the stage turning the house into a funhouse of mystery and madness as creatures walk the stage of pyrotechnics, smoke and mirrors. This is a no-holds barred show so hold on for the ride.
With Godsmack IV quickly approaching platinum status the band has delivered their second #1 album debut of their career. The chart-topping debut came on the heels of the band's soaring first single, "Speak." "Speak" has locked down the #1 spot for 12 straight weeks. Making this their fourth #1 at Active Rock radio. Godsmack is the only rock band to have scored 13 Top 10 hits in the format. The second single from Godsmack IV will be the bluesy-rocker "Shine Down." Godsmack will perform the new single on The Conan O'Brien Show September 5.
Lead singer Sully Erna has also been invited to act in upcoming episodes of Criss Angel's Mindfreak TV show. Sully co-wrote and performs on Mindfreak's new theme song "MF2" and will appear in the music video along with Criss Angel & Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin.
Known for putting together a tireless touring schedule, Godsmack will kick off their 2006 live show on June 10 with a series of sold-out Canadian dates in support of Godsmack IV. The band will also visit Japan in July before hitting North America on August 25.
