According to The Pulse or Radio, GODSMACK has begun announcing dates for its upcoming fall North American tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and DROWNING POOL, with six dates in early October unveiled so far. This will be GODSMACK's first full trek in support of its new album, "The Oracle". The band is known for its large-scale stage shows and drummer Shannon Larkin told The Pulse of Radio the band's got some major plans this time: "It's gonna be different. Very, very cool video with cool video screens that — I can say this, they're, you know, moving video screens," he said. "That's about all I can really give away a little. But it's gonna be an intense thing. We already got the opening number and a couple of gags throughout the show to keep it exciting."
"The Oracle", GODSMACK's fifth album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart earlier this year and has sold 336,000 copies since coming out. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is supporting its second album, "War Is The Answer", and Top 5 cover of the rock classic "Bad Company", while DROWNING POOL is out behind its self-titled fourth record. GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna is also scheduled to bring out his debut solo album, titled "Avalon", next month.
