GODSMACK To Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

April 27, 2010

GODSMACK will be the musical guest on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday, May 5 (which will actually air the morning of Thursday, May 6).

Tickets will be available to the general public free of charge at this location.

Due on May 4, GODSMACK's new album, "The Oracle" is the band's first studio effort since 2006's "IV", another platinum-plus trailblazer for the group, debuting at #1 on The Billboard 200 chart (their second #1 debut following 2003's "Faceless") and harking back to the signature sound of multiplatinum masterpieces like their five-million-selling breakthrough debut album and 2000's "Awake". GODSMACK's most recent album release was 2007's acclaimed greatest-hits package, "Good Times Bad Times....Ten Years of Godsmack", delivered to fans at the end of 2007.

Produced by frontman Sully Erna and Dave Fortman, who has worked with MUDVAYNE and EVANESCENCE, among others, "The Oracle" is another lyrical and musical touchstone for the four-member band. The new album revels in GODSMACK's scorching underpinnings, served up via Erna's monster vocals on "Cryin' Like A Bitch" and other songs, including "Saints And Sinners", "War And Peace" and "Love, Hate, Sex, Pain".

Picking up where they left off with last year's live triumph, the group has mapped out a rigorous spring 2010 live rollout, centered around the May 4 release of "The Oracle". GODSMACK has been chosen to headline the fourth annual installment of the popular Rock On The Range festival, to be held in Columbus, Ohio's, Columbus Crew Stadium on May 22-23. GODSMACK will lead a 37-band charge for the two-day hard rock event, which also includes ROB ZOMBIE, THREE DAYS GRACE, LIMP BIZKIT, RISE AGAINST, and others. GODSMACK is also gearing up for a slew of other May live festivals, including Edgefest VI at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds on May 8, Iowa radio station 89.7's Rockfest in Council Bluffs, Iowa on May 14, the 2010 Lazerfest at Indianola Balloon Grounds in Indianola, Iowa on May 16, and this year's Rocklahoma festival held during Memorial Day weekend in Pryor, Oklahoma.
