Taking a break between legs of the Metallica tour, Godsmack kicks off a sold-out headline tour of their own with Ill Nino and Dropbox. Godsmack's recent release of THE OTHER SIDE, their acoustic
record, debuted last week at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Dropbox, which is frontman Sully Erna's first signing to his new Universal imprint Realign Records, and opens all dates, is also featured on the new album with performance and co-writing credits for the song "Touche." Godsmack heads back out with Metallica, April 20 in Uniondale, NY.
Godsmack loyalists who download THE OTHER SIDE from iTunes, Napster and BuyMusic will receive Dropbox's 'Wishbone' as a bonus track. This digital value-add is the first such offer - bundling an album with a track that is already available for sale - for Universal Motown Records Group (UMRG).
Dropbox came together after Erna introduced Lee Richards, Godsmack's original guitarist, to frontman John Kosco, and they detonate April 13 with their self-titled debut, an explosive album of sprawling melodic rock delivered by a band with a deep reverence for the classics.

SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera recently spoke to MetalUK.com about the group's upcoming CD, "Prophecy", and the recent personnel shuffles that have plagued the band, including the guest appearance on the album of former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson. Asked what he feels the influx of fresh new people has brought to the record, Max said,
"It brought more fire to the whole album. It's one thing playing with people you know, you know exactly what you're going to get, and [another] playing with somebody that comes fresh and new, full of new ideas. [A] perfect example would be [former ILL NINO guitarist] Marc Rizzo, [who] has made the guitars on this album…the first time I've had guitars like this since SEPULTURA days, and I think that was a missing link in my music for a long time. Many people, including myself, always missed that killer rhythm and lead type chemistry I had in SEPULTURA, and I could never get it right in SOULFLY, and it was always a struggle. Marc comes in and makes this album completely much more the way it's supposed to be."
With regards to SOULFLY's collaboration with Ellefson, Max said: More...
