Godsmack — Sully Erna on vocals and guitar, Tony Rombola on guitar, Robbie Merrill on bass and Shannon Larkin on drums — just wrapped their European and U.K. dates. They’ve spent more than a year on the road, both in North America and throughout Europe in support of their When Legends Rise album.
“Under Your Scars” is the latest single from the band’s current album. The song is now No. 5 on the Active Rock Chart, coming on the heels of the album’s two previous No. 1 active rock hits: “When Legends Rise” and “Bulletproof,” the latter of which was recently certified Gold in the U.S. for over 500,000 digital single equivalents and was also the most-played song on rock radio in 2018.
To coincide with the release of “Under Your Scars,” Erna announced the creation of The Scars Foundation to support ongoing mental health struggles that so many face.
When Legends Rise marks the band’s seventh studio album and their first in four years. The critically acclaimed 11-song collection entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart in the top ten (No. 8), with four No. 1 placements on other charts: Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Music Albums, Top Independent Albums and Top Alternative Albums. The album finds the guys 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.
Godsmack stand strong as 21st century hard rock titans. With an unbreakable spirit and diehard work ethic evocative of their hometown, the Boston quartet 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 10 No. 1 singles at mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” “Cryin’ Like A Bitch” and “I Stand Alone.” Moreover, they’ve enjoyed 24 Top 10 hits–the most of any act since February 1999–as well as four Grammy® nominations, and were winners of The Billboard Music Awards Rock Artists of the Year in 2001. Selling over20 million records worldwide, the band has also unleashed three consecutive albums at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200-namely Faceless , IV  and The Oracle . This places them in league with Van Halen, U2, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band and Linkin Park who have also enjoyed the same streak. Moreover, the accomplishment on the road remains staggering with headlining sets around the world. They still stand alone.
