This summer, rock fans across the country should prepare to be rocked hard when the GODSMACK/SHINEDOWN co-headlining summer tour hits more than 30 cities. Produced by Live Nation, the six-week outdoor amphitheater tour kicks off July 22 and make stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta, New York and many more before wrapping September 2. These dates come as both multi-platinum groups are set to release new albums: GODSMACK's When Legends Rise (April 27 via BMG) and SHINEDOWN's Attention Attention (May 4 via Atlantic Records). Tickets are available to the general public starting Friday, March 23 at LiveNation.com.

Select dates of the summer tour will also be part of the popular Live Nation Ticket to Rock program. The Ticket to Rock bundle offers fans a low-cost way to see many of their favorite rock artists live in their area all summer long.

"We really believe this could be a great moment in our band's career and we plan on running on the road until at least Fall of 2019," Sully Erna of GODSMACK says. "We love the guys in SHINEDOWN and we all go way back. There is a very strong mutual respect between our camps and we feel that this tour is going to be a must see!" Adds the singer, songwriter and guitarist: "We're preparing ourselves to be on the top of our game!"

"It's all about impact, and making a statement," says Brent Smith, SHINEDOWN's lead singer. "We are creating a show for the fans that is powerful, passionate, and sonically inspiring. The audience has given us a platform to be ourselves, and create something spectacular. That being said SHINEDOWN, and GODSMACK will most certainly NOT let them down. This will be the Rock & Roll event of the year. In other words "IT'S ABOUT TO GET HEAVY!!!"

The tour will feature two support acts handpicked by GODSMACK and SHINEDOWN. LIKE A STORM will open the first half of the tour with RED SUN RISING performing on the second half. New Zealanders LIKE A STORM, led by brothers Chris, Matt & Kent Brooks, with Zach Wood on drums, have become the most successful New Zealand rock band in U.S. radio history. The band has just finished recording their new album Catacombs and a single is eminent. Akron, Ohio's RED SUN RISING--Mike Protich [vocals/guitar], Ryan Williams [guitar], Dave McGarry [guitar/vocals], Ricky Miller [bass/vocals], and Pat Gerasia [drums]--broke onto the scene in 2012. Through tireless gigging, they built up an impressive local fan base.

When Legends Rise, GODSMACK's first album in four years, is due out April 27 via BMG and marks their debut on the label. The new album comes 20 years after the release of their debut album and 20 million album sales later, GODSMACK are an even stronger animal than before. The album's newly released single, "Bulletproof", shows the band--Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]--doubling down on their combination of tightly wound riffs, rhythmic fury, naked emotions and pushed-to-the-edge vocals, all fired up with melodic precision and tight songcraft. What inspired the songs on When Legends Rise? "It was just about evolving as a songwriter," says singer and songwriter Sully Erna. "I wanted to stretch my wings out even further to use all the experiences I've had with writing different types of music over the years and applying that to find a way to introduce a newer, fresher, more mature sound, but still maintaining the power of GODSMACK." When Legends Rise is available for pre-order now with instant grat track, "Bulletproof". An official music video is coming soon. For more information on GODSMACK, visit the band's website.

Multi-platinum rock band SHINEDOWN recently announced the release of their sixth studio album Attention Attention out May 4th on Atlantic Records. Lead single "Devil" is out now along with the gripping and visceral video which has quickly amassed more than 1 million YouTube views. Attention Attention is available for pre-order now at all DSPs and each pre-order will include an instant download of Devil". Deluxe album bundles are available at the official SHINEDOWN webstore. The 14-track album, SHINEDOWN's most raw and personal to date, is a mental, emotional and physical journey from ruin to reclamation to revelation. The story that unfolds as the album progresses follows an individual from life's lowest lows to the highest highs as anxieties dissipate and demons disappear. It is a powerful and enduring statement about the resolve of the human spirit, our will to overcome struggles, and the importance of respecting and leaning on one another. With a symphony of thought-provoking lyrics, stadium-size, explosive guitars, unpredictable rhythms, and cinematic flourishes, Attention Attention ushers in the band's biggest and boldest chapter yet.
