GODSMACK's upcoming North American tour will be a three-band package, featuring an as-yet-undisclosed co-headliner (rumored to be ROB ZOMBIE) and an opening act, to be announced at a later date. Speaking to Cutter of Appleton, Wisconsin's Razor 94.7 radio station on Monday, April 24, GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin said of the band's upcoming touring plans, "We're going to Canada [in June], then we're gonna hit Alaska, then we're gonna move over to Japan, come back around the world, do Mexico, South America… Unfortunately, it's not gonna be until September that we come to America, but on the positive tip, when we do come to America, it will be our biggest show we've ever brought out, and we have a wonderful, wonderful co-headliner. And guess who it is? I can't tell you. I know, it's such a teaser. I guess the deal's 99 percent done, not a hundred, so… But it's gonna happen. I've talked to the man in question even, so I can say we're bringing a kick-ass show — two kick-ass bands plus an opening band — and like I said, we're not sparing any account on the people's expense this time — it's gonna be full-blown pyro, video, midgets… just kidding, no midgets. [Laughs]"
