ABOUT GODSMACK: In February of 1995, after being behind the drums for more than 23 years, Sully Erna decided to start a new band. It was only a matter of time before he realized he needed to take charge and step out from behind the kit to front the band himself. One year and a couple of member changes later Godsmack was born. Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill and Tony Rombola hit the studio and recorded their first CD titled All Wound Up. They did this over one weekend for a measly twenty six-hundred dollars. Over the next two years, the band played throughout the Boston scene with drummer Joe Darco and began earning a strong reputation of being a great live band. The noise they were making in the New England area created a snowball effect like no other.

In 2000, Godsmack released their second CD, Awake. This album’s title track dominated rock radio and broke chart records throughout 2000 and 2001. The CD’s instrumental track “Vampires” earned the band its first Grammy nomination.

Godsmack toured Awake selling out arenas and outdoor venues nationwide.

In 2002, Sully was asked to A&R the soundtrack for the motion picture The Scorpion king, the third installment in the Mummy saga. The song Godsmack wrote and performed lived up to its title “I Stand Alone” became the #1 single at Rock Radio and the most played Active Rock song in 2002 for 14 weeks straight.

After spending more than four years on the road, the band decided to take a break before heading back into the studio. It was during this break that Shannon Larkin, a friend of Sully’s for 15 years, formerly of the Wrathchild America, AMEN and Ugly Kid Joe, was asked to replace Tommy Stewart. The new lineup headed to Maimai to write and record the bands third CD. Faceless was released in April 2003 and became the #1 selling record in America of that week.

The band released Godsmack IV on April 25, 2006 and their latest album, The Oracle, hit the streets on May 4, 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.godsmack.com.
