GODSMACK Returns April 27th

GODSMACK
RETURN APRIL 27 WITH
'WHEN LEGENDS RISE,'
THEIR FIRST ALBUM IN FOUR YEARS AND DEBUT ON BMG
 
LISTEN TO "BULLETPROOF," THE ALBUM'S FIRST SINGLE HERE
 
BAND SET FOR MAJOR U.S. FESTIVALS IN APRIL, MAY AND JULY
 
  
Pre-Order Available Now
 
20 years since the release of their debut album and 20 million album sales later, GODSMACK are an even stronger animal than before. The proof is in the grooves of WHEN LEGENDS RISE, their first album in four years that's due out April 27 via BMG and marking their debut on the label. The album is available for pre-order now (here) with instant grat track, "Bulletproof."
 
The first single is "Bulletproof," which shows the band--Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]--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. An official music video is coming soon.
 
What inspired the songs on WHEN LEGENDS RISE? "It was just about evolving as a songwriter," says singer and songwriter Sully Erna. "I wanted to stretch my wings out even further to use all the experiences I've had with writing different types of music over the years and applying that to find a way to introduce a newer, fresher, more mature sound, but still maintaining the power of Godsmack."
