GODSMACK: Fan-Filmed Video Footage Of Entire Brisbane Concert

Fan-filmed video footage of GODSMACK's entire February 28 performance in Brisbane, Australia as part of this year's Soundwave festival can be seen below.

In a 2014 interview with AMH Network, GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna admitted that the band has neglected the international market on a wide scale for most of its nearly 20-year existence, something that GODSMACK planned to change in 2015. "There was a lot of politics going on with our record label and some of the decisions that were made," he explained. "There was a merger, and long story short, it became too expensive for us to go overseas without the support. We had no records in stores. But now it's gotten to the point where we acknowledge that we need to start touring internationally, and we have the support to do it."

Back in 2012, GODSMACK was forced to cancel a number of European dates due to Erna's unspecified vocal troubles.

GODSMACK was only able to perform two of its fourteen scheduled dates in Europe, which marked the first time the band had toured the continent in almost nine years.

GODSMACK's sixth studio album, "1000hp", sold approximately 58,000 copies in its first week of release to land at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 album chart. The disc, which arrived on August 5, 2014, followed up 2011's "The Oracle", which topped the chart with sales of 117,000 copies in its debut week.

Erna described the sound of the "1000hp" album to The Pulse Of Radio as "a little bit more raw, a little bit more open. The writing was a little freer. The production is really kind of raw and in your face, and the songs, man — I'm really, really excited about these songs. And I have to tell you honestly, I wasn't that excited about writing this record at first."
