WMMR‘s Matt Cord and Marcus conducted an interview with GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna at the annual MMRBQ on May 20 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey. You can now watch the chat below.
GODSMACK‘s first-ever live album, “Live Inspired”, sold around 16,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Released on May 15 via Universal Republic Records, “Live Inspired” features fierce and furious live renditions of numerous hits from the Massachusetts rockers’ five studio albums. Their incendiary and infectious shows have become legendary in modern rock, and they continue to impress both critics and audiences alike every time they hit the stage. The group sounds unchained on rousing performances of “Awake”, “Keep Away”, “Straight Out of Line”, “Whatever”, “Voodoo”, and “I Stand Alone”.
This is the first time that’s been captured on CD, and bonus tracks of covers that have “inspired” GODSMACK is also going to be included along with it. The four tracks are quite close to the band’s collective heart. The band started ripping through local Massachusetts haunts with their renditions of some of these songs, and these recordings bring everything full circle.
GODSMACK‘s fifth studio album, “The Oracle”, opened with 117,000 copies back in May 2010 to land at No. 1.
