Check out WDHA Presents: Godsmack  on their Vibez Tour – An Intimate Evening of Music and Untold Stories at the New Jersey Preforming Arts Center on Saturday, May 4th!

Hailing from Lawrence, Massachusetts, Godsmack was formed by Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill, Lee Richards, and Tommy Stewart in 1995. After self-releasing their debut album All Wound Up… in February of 1997, and the brief departure of Tommy Stewart, the band was picked up by Republic Records in June of 1998. The band then remixed, renamed, and rereleased the album, creating the now well known, copyright issue-free form of Godsmack. The newly renamed and re-released self-titled album would go on to reach Platinum certification, as well as be banned and unbanned from numerous stores, before it’s first birthday, and hitting quadruple Platinum by December of 2001.

Fast forward to 2023, the band has had a few lineup changes with only Erna and Merrill sticking around, as well as the success you’d expect from a band with a certified Platinum debut, three consecutive Billboard 200 number one albums in Faceless, IV, and The Oracle, a seemingly endless stream of Gold and Platinum records and singles including their video albums, multiple Grammy nominations, Billboard awards, Boston Music Awards, their own day in the city of Boston, and the hit single “I Stand Alone” saturating pop-culture in every way from baseball entrance songs to video game soundtracks to films such as Here Comes The Boom and alongside CGI Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Scorpion King.

With their new album Lighting Up the Sky having been released in February, featuring the singles “I Surrender”, “You and I”, and “Soul on Fire”, and an acoustic tour on the horizon, the band shows no sign of slowing down.
