20 years since the release of their debut album and 20 million worldwide sales later, GODSMACK are an even stronger animal than before. The proof is in the grooves of WHEN LEGENDS RISE, their first studio outing in four years, due out April 27th via Spinefarm Records.

WHEN LEGENDS RISE, the band's seventh studio album, was recorded at their headquarters (GSHQ) in Derry, New Hampshire, and produced by Erik Ron and Erna. Sonically intense and layered, it pushes the band forward, kicking off with the title track which begins with tribal-style drums and lethal riffs.

'When Legends Rise' speaks to "the band and our journey," says Erna. "It's been an amazing road we have travelled through all the ups and downs. But being able to conquer those challenging times with alcohol and egos and everything else that can tear a band apart is what we are the most proud of. To be able to stand strong again and do it better than we ever have. It's about burning it down and building it back up. It's the Phoenix rising from the ashes!"

WHEN LEGENDS RISE follows the success of 2014's '1,000 HP', which entered the Top Billboard 200 chart at #3, with two #1 debuts (Billboard Top Alternative Albums: #1 Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums: #1).

The WHEN LEGENDS RISE track-listing is as follows:-

'When Legends Rise'
'Every Part Of Me'
'Take It To The Edge'
'Under Your Scars'
'Just One Time'
'Say My Name'
'Let It Out'
'Eye Of The Storm'


Godsmack stand strong as 21st century hard rock titans. With an unbreakable spirit and die-hard work ethic evocative of their hometown, the Boston quartet have 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 US 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 of the Year in 2001. Selling over 20 million records worldwide, the band has also unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the US Billboard Top 200 ' 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, their accomplishments on the road remain staggering, with headlining sets everywhere from Mayhem and UPROAR through to Rock on the Range. Godsmack released the successful and acclaimed 1,000 HP in 2014, and their domination continues with the arrival of When Legends Rise, their seventh full-length album in 2018. They still stand alone.
