SEPTEMBER 27, 2021: Multi-platinum hard rock titans GODSMACK have earned another career highlight. The band’s WHEN LEGENDS RISE album (BMG, February 2018) is newly gold-certified by the RIAA. In addition, two more of the album’s singles (the title track and “Under Your Scars”) have also been officially certified gold by the RIAA. The album’s first single and #1 rock track “Bulletproof” earned a Platinum Digital Single Award in September 2020 and was previously certified Gold in the U.S.
WHEN LEGENDS RISE is the seventh studio album from GODSMACK, who are Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola[guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin[drums]. Produced by Erik Ron and Erna, it was the band’s first release in four years and was recorded at their headquarters (GSHQ) in Derry, New Hampshire. The album went on to garner a multitude of career milestones for the group: four #1 rock tracks(an accomplishment that makes GODSMACK one of only four rock acts to achieve this), and a record 11 #1 singles in the band’s career with the album’s fourth single “Unforgettable.” 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.
