Sully and the boys from Godsmack have announced that they will pack up the gear and hit the road once again for a 12-date fall tour. Sevendust will also pack up the tour bus and hit the road to help support the tour.
Godsmack has been touring in support of its current sixth studio album, “1000hp,” for the last year. Earlier in the year the band toured with Papa Roach on their spring tour.
In 2014, former Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, declared August, 6 as “Godsmack” day in the city of Boston. The accolade was achieved because of the success the band has had over the years.
Godsmack has had twenty, top ten rock radio hits so far in their career, in which fifteen of those singles landed in the top 5. In 2001, Godsmack won Billboards “Rock Artist of the Year” award.
Sevendust is set to release its 11th studio album sometime this year. There have been rumors about names for the album but nothing is official yet. Numerous music sites have claimed that the album has been completed since March of 2015.
It has also been rumored that the band will take a hiatus after the album release and possible headline tour even though guitarist for the band, Clint Lowery, has stated that the band hopes to record a second acoustic album in the next two years and would like to make it part of the Sevendust recording cycle.
New York will see the only tour stop in Poughkeepsie at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center on Wednesday, October 14. This tour is being labeled as historic, as two of the best ever in rock music reunite for some memorable shows.
