Godsmack guitarist Tony Rombola and drummer Shannon Larkin recently told iRock Radio that while the band skipped celebrating the 20th anniversary of its debut album this year in favor of promoting the new When Legends Rise, a commemoration of some kind could come in 2019.
Larkin explained, “If we put a new record out and play all of the first record, then we wouldn’t really be pushing this new record . . . with that said, we hope maybe next year, after we get done with the cycle for When Legends Rise, to maybe do a tour. And by then it’ll be ‘(second LP) Awake‘s 20-year anniversary. So we could do maybe a tour where we play just songs from those first two records.”
When Legends Rise arrived April 27th and entered at Number Eight on the Billboard 200. The first single, “Bulletproof,” became the latest Godsmack track to top the rock radio charts.
