Godsmack claim third consecutive number one album

Led into action by mainman Sully Erna, Boston-based quartet Godsmack prove they are truly on top of their game, with fifth full-length studio offering ‘The Oracle’ storming the US album chart this week, going straight in at Number One.

The band fended off the likes of AC/DC & Bullet For My Valentine to gain their third consecutive Number One spot – a feat realised by very few rock acts, especially ones packing the sonic punch of Godsmack.

‘Cryin’ Like A Bitch!!’, the lead track/video from ‘The Oracle’, has just become the band’s 18th Top 10 hit at Active Rock Radio in the US, something never before achieved!

The single is released over here on May 23rd through Spinefarm Records UK, with the full album following on June 28th.

The video for ‘Cryin’…’ shows ‘Ultimate Fighting Championship’ (UFC) champions Chuck Liddell, Rashad Evans, Brock Lesner, BJ Penn and Matt Hughes brutally knocking out the competition, inter-cut with a typically impassioned performance from Godsmack themselves.

Voted ‘Best Band’ at last year’s ‘Crüe Fest 2’ extravaganza, Godsmack have lined up a rigorous live schedule for 2010, including a headline spot at the Rock On The Range festival to be held in Columbus, Ohio on May 22nd & 23rd – an event that also features Rob Zombie, Limp Bizkit & Three Days Grace. Other US festival appearances will follow.

To date, the band have sold in excess of 15 million albums worldwide, received 4 platinum awards, plus three Grammy nominations.
