GODSMACK recently had to postpone its fall European tour due to the unexpected death of the son of guitarist Tony Rombola.
The band is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "When Legends Rise", which was released in April. The disc follows up 2014's "1000hp" and is the band's first release through BMG after splitting with its longtime home, Republic/Universal.
On August 26, 2017, VOLBEAT became the first Danish band to headline and sell out its hometown venue, Denmark's Telia Parken, setting the record for the biggest show by a domestic artist in Denmark ever, with over 48,250 people in attendance. To commemorate and immortalize the record-breaking event, the band will release "Let's Boogie! Live From Telia Parken" on December 14 via Republic Records.
The 26-track "Let's Boogie! Live From Telia Parken" includes live versions of VOLBEAT's chart-topping hits "Still Counting", "For Evigt", "The Devil's Bleeding Crown" and "A Warrior's Call", as well as a live performance of a new song, "The Everlasting". Special guests on the album (in order of appearance) include Mille Petrozza (KREATOR), Johan Olsen, Mark "Barney" Greenway (NAPALM DEATH), Lars Ulrich (METALLICA), boxer Mikkel Kessler and Danko Jones. The album and concert film will be available in the following configurations: Blu-ray/2CD, DVD/2CD, 2CD, 3LP vinyl and digitally.
