TORONTO, ON (29 July 2014) – GODSMACK’s sixth full-length album, 1000hp is now available for digital pre-order ahead of its August 5 release date via Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. 1000hp is the follow up to 2010’s Oracle, which debuted at #2 on the Top 200 chart in Canada.

Singer and guitarist Sully Erna comments on the new album, “We made a conscious decision to go back to the streets of Boston for this album. It doesn’t just capture the spirit of the city. It’s GODSMACK.” 

Fans who pre-order will receive as instant downloads, the first single “1000hp” and “Generation Day”, which is a sprawling hard rock epic record that crosses the six-minute mark and hooks you upon first listen. Listen here!  Fans may also purchase special bundle packages for 1000hp at Godsmack.com, which includes CD or vinyl, as well as exclusive t-shirts, mechanic jackets, signed posters, signed drumheads, and more.

Erna also penned a piece for www.Grammy.com about “Generation Day” where he talks about the days of vinyl, listing to a physical record in its entirety from front to back, and the timeless journey of experiencing a record from the music to the packaging. The song itself discusses the digital age subsuming the music industry and how he and his band mates belong to one of the last generations who remember only being able to listen to music in this way. The song itself follows that narrative of the internet new age taking over, yet he encourages embracing the future while revering rock ‘n’ roll.

With devoted fans across the globe, they have sold over 20 million records worldwide and over 490,000 records Canada.  The accomplishments on the road remain staggering with headlining sets everywhere from Mayhem and UPROAR to Rock on the Range.  Additional Canadian dates have been revealed for this summer’s Rockstar UPROAR Tour, which GODSMACK is headlining, with details below.
