As Shinedown and Godsmack gear up for their co-headlining summer tour, the two multi-platinum rock groups have revealed an additional run of dates keeping them on the road together into the fall. Newly added dates on the hard-hitting trek—featuring support from Asking Alexandria—including a stop in Everett on October 10. Both bands are touring in support of their new chart-topping albums: Godsmack’s When Legends Rise and Shinedown’s ATTENTION ATTENTION, out now.
“We really believe this could be a great moment in our band’s career and we plan on running on the road until at least fall of 2019,” Sully Erna of Godsmack says. “We love the guys in Shinedown and we all go way back. There is a very strong mutual respect between our camps and we feel that this tour is going to be a must see!” Adds the singer, songwriter and guitarist: “We’re preparing ourselves to be on the top of our game!”
Godsmack exploded onto the album charts with their latest release, When Legends Rise, the band’s seventh studio album and their first in four years. The 11-song collection, fueled by the #1 Mainstream Rock Song and video “Bulletproof” plus the title track “When Legends Rise,” 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.
“It’s all about impact, and making a statement,” says Brent Smith, Shinedown’s lead singer. “We are creating a show for the fans that is powerful, passionate, and sonically inspiring. The audience has given us a platform to be ourselves, and create something spectacular. That being said Shinedown, and Godsmack will most certainly not let them down. This will be the Rock & Roll event of the year. In other words ‘IT’S ABOUT TO GET HEAVY!!!’”
Shinedown are at the top of their game and the charts with their critically acclaimed sixth studio album ATTENTION ATTENTION, out now on Atlantic Records. The album simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on iTunes. Lead single “DEVIL” recently returned to #1 at Active Rock, the 13th #1 for the band at the format, racking up more than 7 million streams worldwide and immediately landing on the Spotify Global Viral 50 Chart.
