GODSMACK's 'Faceless' Certified Platinum!

GODSMACK's third full-length album, "Faceless", has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), signifying sales of more than 1,000,000 units. The band have reached this benchmark a mere five weeks after the album's release in April. The CD debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.

The amazing sales story is due in no small part to the success of the album's first single, "Straight Out Of Line", at radio. The song immediately ascended to no. 1 at Active, Mainstream & Heritage Rock radio & top 10 at the Modern Rock format. No stranger to radio success, GODSMACK has topped the charts with seven hit singles from their last two albums ("Voodoo", "Whatever" and "Awake", among others), including the BDS Most Played Active Rock song of 2001, "I Stand Alone".

"Faceless" was produced by David Bottrill (TOOL). GODSMACK's previous multi-platinum albums, "Godsmack" and "Awake", and their theme song from the soundtrack for "The Scorpion King" garnered the band three Grammy nominations, an American Music Awards nomination and won them the 2001 Billboard Rock Band Of The Year award.

Fans can look for the band on tour in the U.S. through late June and then when they return to the U.S. in the fall. GODSMACK's video for "Straight Out Of Line", which gives an "intimate" view of the band in a mock rehearsal, can currently be seen on MTV, MTV2 and Much Music USA.
