Godsmack will return to the road in 2019-first with 20 shows in Europe to be followed by a North American headlining tour with Volbeat.

Godsmack will kick it off February 27 in London with Like A Storm confirmed as direct support for the six-week European trek. Next, Godsmack will return to the U.S. where they’ll headline a U.S. run of shows with special guests Volbeat, along with some co-headlining shows with them in Canada. Tickets are on sale now for the European dates, with onsales set for mid-December for the North American gigs.

Earlier this year (4/27), Godsmack released When Legends Rise via BMG (US) and Spinefarm (Worldwide), marking the band’s seventh studio album and their first in four years. The acclaimed 11-song collection, fueled by the Top 5 rock song and video “Bulletproof” plus the title track “When Legends Rise,” entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart in the top ten (#8), with four #1 placements on other charts: Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Music Albums, Top Independent Albums and Top Alternative Albums. When Legends Rise is available on CD, LP and Digital; purchase or stream it here.
