GODSMACK Hitting TV Circuit As 'The Oracle' Arrives

According to The Pulse of Radio, Massachusetts rockers GODSMACK will hit the late-night TV circuit next week as their fifth album, "The Oracle", arrives in stores on Tuesday (May 4). The quartet will perform on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Monday (May 3), followed by a Wednesday night (May 5) appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" With a massive amount of touring on the horizon, drummer Shannon Larkin told The Pulse of Radio that the TV gigs are a good warm-up. "That's pretty cool, 'cause when you're playing on those shows, you know that, you know, you're only playing in front of a couple of hundred people in the studio audience, but you're really playing for a million people, you know, outside the whole country," he said. "And so I think that'll get all the butterflies out of our stomach before we even hit the big stage."

The first single from "The Oracle", "Cryin' Like A Bitch", currently tops the Active Rock radio chart.

The new CD follows up 2006's "IV" and a nearly two-year hiatus from recording and touring.

GODSMACK has several festival appearances scheduled for next month, including a May 22 headlining set at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.
