Godsmack Get Ready To Release

For Immediate Release:

New York, NY – Multi-platinum, double Grammy-nominated rockers, Godsmack, are set to release their third album on Republic/Universal Records. The CD, entitled Faceless, was produced by David Bottrill (Tool) and will hit stores on April 8th, 2003.

Active, Mainstream and Modern Rock radio took the first single off Faceless, “Straight Out Of Line,” to their hearts - and playlists. The song was #1 most-added at all formats to start the radio campaign, as the Active Rock panel was unanimous in their support of the track and Mainstream and Modern panels started out as 80% closed - upon its January 27th add date. The track is steadily climbing the charts, charting in the Top 10 at Alternative, Active, Heritage and Mainstream Rock formats with an ever-expanding radio audience that boasts, currently, over 20 million listeners.

Faceless is a departure for the Boston-based four-piece who now welcome new member, Shannon Larkin on the drums. Not only is there an awe-inspiring injection of raw energy from Larkin’s admittance into the Godsmakc fold, but vocalist, Sully Erna also took this opportunity to test his vocal range throughout the disc. More melody in music and vocals, deeper subject matter and extraordinarily potent guitar solos from Tony Rombola punctuate an evolution that the band stress is not due to any outside influence. The writing and recording process, according to Erna, was a self-contained one in which the band holed up in a rented home in Miami, FL and wrote without distraction or influence from the rock music scene going on around them.

The album name, according to bassist Robbie Merrill, came from the band’s feeling that, despite their amazing radio and sales success, they still flew a bit ‘under the radar.’ Their upcoming album is sure to thrust the band into the spotlight on the strength of its material, the brand new songs and one familiar favorite. The double Grammy Nominated track, “I Stand Alone” is joined by Faceless’ first single, “Straight Out Of Line.” The video for this hit track (“Straight Out Of Line”) was made by Dean Karr, who previously worked with the band on their “Voodoo” video. It is performance-based and was added to MTV, MTV2 and Much Music. V Other shining tracks are “Serenity” (the record’s answer to their ‘tribal’ hit, “Voodoo”), “Changes” (a band favorite, with a introspective lyric and complex melody), “I Am” (a powerful exchange between the addiction and the addicted) and the title track “Faceless” (a track that charges at you with a guitar punch right between the eyes). Every track is a source of pride for the band, who feel there is something for every Godsmack fan on Faceless.

The band’s fans are more vocal than ever in support of Faceless. At www.voodootribe.com, The Voodoo Tribe, the official Godsmack fan community site, brings fans together and provides members with advance access to Godsmack concert tickets, insider news, special audio and video before the general public as well as with exclusive backstage experiences.

Upon the release of Faceless, the band will be appearing on The Tonight Show (4/8), Jimmy Kimmel Live (4/11) and Mad TV (4/12). They can also be seen on the cover of the current issues of Guitar One Magazine and Metal Edge Magazine with covers coming up in Circus and Hit Parader Magazines . Features in Guitar World, Revolver, Request, Modern Drummer and more as well as reviews in USA Today, People, Entertainment Weekly, Maxim, Rolling Stone, Blender and more will be running throughout April and May.
