Multi-platinum rockers GODSMACK have the #1 Rock Album in America with 1000HP, which crashed straight in at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 – the Boston band’s 6th top 10 album debut in the US.
1000HP, released by Spinefarm Records on September 1st in Europe, is also the title of the current single, which launched to #1 at Rock Radio.
The brand new music video for 1000hp is now live; the clip documents the group’s rise to fame via previously unseen behind-the-scenes and concert footage of the early years, and shows the ever-increasing weight of the live performance.
1000HP (the album) is available for pre-order at the following links: Amazon: http://po.st/nyKFtW and iTunes: http://po.st/D0lzsk
Last week, Boston’s Mayor Martin J. Walsh – sporting a Godsmack tour jacket! – proclaimed August 6th as official ‘Godsmack Day’ in recognition of the band’s links with the city plus longstanding and continued music industry success, with 20 million records sold worldwide alongside four Grammy nominations; he presented each member with an official proclamation honouring this unique occasion, which included a chance for fans to meet the musicians at Newbury Comics – the first store to carry Godsmack’s debut album (1998).
Godsmack hit the road in the US on August 15th, headlining the Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival, with European dates being discussed.
