21st century hard rock titans Godsmack have sold over 20 million records worldwide.

Frontman and founder Sully Erna says, “UPROAR Festival has been a long part of Godsmack’s history; we can’t wait to get out with some of our longtime friends and play our new music for our fans.”
“We’re excited to welcome UPROAR veterans Godsmack back for another year and also can’t wait to hit the road with all the other amazing rock bands joining us for the first time. We look forward to creating an incredible UPROAR experience for rock fans in every city we visit,” say festival producers John Oakes and John Reese.

Godsmack stand strong as 21st century hard rock titans. With an unbreakable spirit and diehard work ethic evocative of their hometown, the Boston quartet consists of Sully Erna (vocals), Shannon Larkin (drums), Robbie Merril (bass), and Tony Rombola (lead guitar). To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles at mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” “Cryin’ Like A Bitch,” and “I Stand Alone.” Moreover, they’ve enjoyed 20 Top 10 hits at the format–the most of any act since February 1999–as well as four Grammy nominations, and were winners of Billboard Music Awards’ Rock Artist of the Year in 2001.
Selling over 20 million records worldwide, the band has also unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200—namely Faceless , IV , and The Oracle. Godsmack’s domination continues with the release of their new smash single “1000hp,” which debuted #1 on the iTunes Rock chart, and upcoming release of their sixth full length album 1000hp on August 5th.
