GODSMACK is touring North America in support of its latest album, "IV" (Four). The band plans to shoot a video for its new single, "The Enemy", and might enlist veteran actor Chazz Palminteri to direct it. Palminteri's acting credits include "The Usual Suspects", "A Bronx Tale" and "Analyze This".

GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin, guitarist Tony Rombola and bassist Robbie Merrill's side project, called ANOTHER ANIMAL, is tentatively scheduled to release its debut disc in early 2007.
