Since smashing their way on to the scene in 1998, Godsmack has been revered as 21st century hard rock titans. To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles on mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” and “I Stand Alone.” Among multiple Grammy nominations, the group has sold over 20 million records worldwide and unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.
Leading the charge for new age rock, multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums. Every one of the singles released over Shinedown’s nearly two-decade career has ascended to the Top 10 on the rock charts – a feat unmatched by any other rock band. Hailed as a fiery and always exciting live act, the band has racked up countless sold-out tours and festival headlining sets.
When Legends Rise, Godsmack’s first album in four years, is due out April 27 via BMG and marks their debut on the label. The new project comes 20 years after the release of their self-titled debut album. Playing alongside their longtime friends in music, multi-platinum rock band Shinedown recently announced the release of their sixth studio album Attention Attention, out May 4th on Atlantic Records. The record offers thought-provoking lyrics, explosive guitars, unpredictable rhythms and cinematic flourishes in the band’s biggest and boldest chapter yet.
Supporting Godsmack and Shinedown for an electric evening will be New Zealanders, Like A Storm. Led by brothers Chris, Matt, and Kent Brooks, with Zach Wood on drums, the group has become the most successful New Zealand rock band in U.S. radio history.
