Godsmack released When Legends Rise, the band’s seventh studio album, on April 27 via BMG. The metal quartet have teamed with fellow rockers Shinedown for a joint tour that visits Jiffy Lube Live on Sunday, Aug. 19.
The new album by Godsmack was greeted with commercial success, supported by the #1 Mainstream Rock song and video “Bulletproof” plus the title track “When Legends Rise.” The record entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart in the Top 10 (#8), with four #1 placements on other charts: Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Music Albums, Top Independent Albums, and Top Alternative Albums.

Loudwire hailed the new album from Godsmack as one of “2018’s Best Rock Albums… So Far.” Loudwire’s Chad Childers said, “The band is painting with a broader palette and delivering one of their most well-rounded albums to date.”
“The single ‘Bulletproof’ was ready made for rock radio, while the titular ‘When Legends Rise’ is the sound of a band brimming with as much vitality as they’ve ever had. The adrenaline-fueled ‘Take It to the Edge,’ the road-burning rocker ‘Say My Name’ and the epic, buzz-generating ‘Under Your Scars’ could all find some time on the airwaves as well. When Legends Rise should give Godsmack an uptick in their career,” he added.
